Lycamobile updated their website today to indicate that the current $10 off monthly plans promotion has been extended until June 30, 2013. The promotion was originally supposed to end April 30.
Lyca has also extended its unlimited international calling promotion until April 30. It provides unlimited calls to up to 10 unique numbers in 50 countries on the promotionally priced $29/month plan. The promotional $39 plan includes unlimited calls to 65 countries (also limited to 10 unique numbers per month). As part of the promotion, both plans also include a $10/month credit toward international calls that aren't covered by the unlimited offer.
Lyca is new to the US but is well established in Europe where it has 20 million customers in 16 countries, making it the largest European MVNO. Lyca SIMs are free, if ordered from their site. Unfortunately many people, myself included, did not receive SIMs that they ordered. The SIM order page has recently been redesigned so maybe the kinks have finally been worked out from the order process. I made another attempt, my third, at ordering a SIM today and will update this post if I ever get it.
Here's the current Lycamobile lineup.
