Cricket Wireless today added more data to its bottom two prepaid service plans in a bid to keep up with similar offers from Boost Mobile and MetroPCS. With Cricket's auto-pay discount, the Basic plan costs $35 per month and now includes unlimited talk, text, and 2.5GB of high-speed data per month (up from 1GB). Cricket's Smart plan costs $45 per month and includes 5GB of high-speed data (up from 3GB), and the Pro plan costs $55 per month and includes 10GB of high-speed data. Existing customers will automatically receive the upgraded data allotments. Last, Cricket added an Advanced plan that includes 20GB of data for $55 per month. The Advanced plan will only be available for a limited time and requires an LTE-capable handset. Cricket will provide one month of free service to new customers who sign up for its Smart, Pro, or Advanced plans. The new rates go into effect today. Cricket is owned and operated by AT&T. LTE speeds are limited to 8Mbps. Customers who exceed their monthly limit will be throttled for the remainder of the billing period.

What a DEAL...Cricket OWNS prepaid!!

I just ported OUT of Cricket in December to take advantage of AT&T's "Double-Data" Promotion. Got 30GB for my 2 lines instead of the 20GB I was getting with Cricket. Cost with AT&T was $130 with my wife's corporate discount & tax included (Montana is 2nd lowest in the nation with cell taxes) vs $110 with Cricket. Well now for $110 with Cricket I'll get 40GB of data over 2 lines so BACK TO CRICKET. I even called AT&T twice to see if there was any better "hidden" plan or expired plan they could maybe put on my account to beat or match the Cricket deal even if it cost a little more & they had nothing. AT&T's network is great (have been on all 4 at one time) & Cricket is a SMOKING deal. 20GB of data for $55, 5 lines each with 2.5GB of data...
Well considering Cricket runs on AT&T's network now, then it's a no-brainer for you to go back
