Cricket Changes Plan Names, Clarifies Plan Features
Cricket Wireless today said its service plans have new names. The new names corresponded to changes the company made to its service offerings on April 22. For the sake of clarity, the former Cricket Unlimited plan is now called the Cricket Unlimited Max plan. It costs $60 per month and provides unlimited high-speed data (up to 22 GB per month) with unlimited calls, texts, and picture messages between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The Cricket Unlimited 2 plan is now called Cricket Unlimited. This plan costs $55 per month and provides unlimited data at speeds up to 3Mbps, and video streams capped at SD quality (480p). Like the Max plan, the Unlimited plan provides unlimited calls, texts, and picture messages between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Cricket subscribers can save $5 per month on either plan if they enroll in autopay. These new plans are available now.
