Walmart Adds 10GB Plan and 'Binge On' Service
Walmart Family Mobile has rolled out a new plan that includes unlimited talk, text, and 10GB of LTE 4G data for $49.88 per month. Users who surpass the 10 GB cap will be throttled down to 2G speeds. In addition to the high-capacity plan, Walmart Family Mobile also debuted a feature called Data Saver, which mimics T-Mobile's Binge On service. With Data Saver enabled, Walmart Family Mobile customers can watch compressed, DVD-quality video to reduce data consumption. Data Saver can be turned on or off at will. Walmart Family Mobile is an MVNO that operates on T-Mobile's network. The new 10 GB plan with Data Saver will be available only for a limited time. Walmart Family Mobile also offers a 1 GB plan for $30 per month and a 5 GB plan for $40 per month.
