Alltel Launches Its Own $99 Unlimited Plan
MyCircle is the best value... for some.
With any of the companies now doing the unlimited (including Alltel), add a lines are either another $100 or $95/month. So for a husband/wife who need unlimited minutes, they'd be spending $200/month. OR, they could get on the MyCircle 2100 plan for $110/month (total) and have unlimited to 20 people (more than enough) and 2100 minutes to share with UNL N&W and UNL Alltel to Alltel calling.
Think of it from an even broader perspective. Probably more than half of wireless customers purchase plans of at least 3 or subscribers. 3 phones at unlimited minutes is $300/month with any of the companies! 3 phones at 6,000 minutes, UNL N&W, UNL All-All, and UNL to any 20 people the family wants is $220/month. That's $80/month, or $960/year.
For people who need more than 4,000 or 5,000 minutes AND are only needing a single line plan, the UNL calling plans are great. But for the 99% of the American public, that is simply more minutes than you need.
Alltel is wise to offer the unlimited plans from a marketing standpoint, and also because it WILL cater to 1% of the population. But for almost everyone else, their MyCircle plans are simply better.
