Leap Wireless, the owner of the Cricket wireless service, has announced a new tiered pricing plan for data usage. The service offers tiered pricing based on data usage. Customers can buy plans ranging from 2.5GB of data for $40 up to 7.5GB of data for $60. Unlike similar plans from AT&T, Leap will not charge an overage fee for users who exceed their monthly allotment. Instead, Leap will throttle back download speeds from their peak 1.4Mbps capability to a new unspecified low. Leap will also be increasing the price of its voice and text plans on Cricket by $5. In addition, Cricket will begin rolling the cost of fees into its service plans, so the advertised monthly cost will include activation, reactivation, migration or reinstatement fees. The new service plans come with the launch of Leap's BlackBerry Curve 8530. The BlackBerry smartphone will go on sale for $300 with no contract agreement required. At its 2010 Analyst Day in New York today, Leap will also detail its new lineup of smartphones and other 3G devices.
