Mint SIM Offering Bulk Plans for As Little As $15 Per Month
Mint SIM today rolled out a new service plan offering that encourages customers to buy wireless access in multi-month bundles. Mint SIM now has nine different options for customers. The entry-level service plan includes unlimited talk and text with 2 GB of LTE 4G service. Mint SIM also offers a 5 GB plan and a 10 GB plan. Each of the 2 GB, 5 GB and 10 GB plans needs to be purchased in 3-, 6-, or 12-month bundles, and paid in full up front. For example, the 2 GB plan is available for $15 per month for three months, but requires an immediate payment of $45. Customers can buy the 2 GB plan for 6 months for a total of $108 up front, or for 12 months for a total of $180 up front. The 5 GB costs $60, $144, or $240 for 3, 6, or 12 months, respectively, and the 10 GB plan costs $75, $180, or $300 for 3, 6, or 12 months, respectively. Mint SIM is an MVNO that runs on T-Mobile's network. Customers can use their own unlocked GSM handset, or purchase a device directly from Mint SIM. Mint SIM is also launching a SIM card bundle at Best Buy stores. Customers can pick up a Mint SIM card for any of the nine bundled options at Best Buy retail locations in the U.S. and pair it with their own unlocked handset. Mint SIM would not say what the top 4G LTE download speed available to customers is, but it does throttle those who exceed their monthly data limit to 128 Kbps. The new Mint SIM service plans are available beginning today.
