Lycamobile has increased the amount of high speed 4G data included with its $29/month and $39/month plans. The $29 plan goes from 50 MB of 4G data to 250 MB. The $39 plan gets an increase from 250 MB to 500 MB. High speed data on Lycamobile is 4G HSPA+, not LTE.
Both plans also include unlimited domestic voice minutes, unlimited domestic and international texts, 1000 minutes of calls to landlines and mobile phones in China, Canada and Hong Kong and to landlines in India and Mexico and unlimited "2G" data throttled to approximately 128 Kbps after the high speed data is used up. The $29 plan also comes with a $2.50 international call credit. The $39 plan includes a $10 international call credit.
Lycamobile, which is the largest MVNO in Europe, launched in the US last year. The service does have its quirks, MMS picture messaging doesn't work and although Lyca runs on the T-Mobile network, only unlocked phones work, T-Mobile locked phones do not.
