Red Pocket Mobile has modified its $49.99 plan to include unlimited data. The plan, which used to come with 1 GB of data, now includes 500 MB of full speed HSPA+ data. After 500 MB data in a 30 day plan period data speeds are reduced. Full speed data resumes at the beginning of the next month.
RedPocket isn't saying what the throttled speed is but with other operators throttled speeds are usually either 128 Kbps or 256 Kbps.
While this change lets Red Pocket advertise unlimited data, I suspect most current $49.99 plan users won't consider it an improvement. At least Red Pocket's other plans (listed below) remain unchanged.
The $49.99 plan also includes unlimited domestic calling and texting, unlimited domestic and international MMS, unlimited inbound and 40 free outbound international texts and a $2 international call credit good for up to 200 minutes of international calls.
