Red Pocket Mobile has added a new $69.99 LTE option to their lineup of GSMA (AT&T network) plans. The new plan is priced at $69.99/30 days and features 4GB of data of high speed data, including LTE, along with unlimited domestic voice and messaging, a $2 international calling credit and 200 outgoing and unlimited incoming international texts.
The new $69.99 plan is the only Red Pocket GSMA plan that includes LTE data. Unlike most of Red Pocket's other GSMA plans, which provide unlimited throttled data after the high speed data allotment has been used up, the new plan has a hard data cap, data stops at 4GB. Additional high speed data can be added at $19.99 for 1GB.
Red Pocket has also made some changes to the way they describe their Verizon based plans. These plans used to be called "CDMAV", but are now labeled as simply "CDMA". I'm guessing that Verizon, which doesn't let its MVNOs make any reference to the Verizon name, felt that the "V" suffix violated their rules. Another change is that the main Red Pocket plans page has been changed to say that the 1GB of data that comes with the $19.99 CDMA plan is being delivered at "3G speeds" rather that at "reduced speed". However there's conflicting information on the Red Pocket site, as the All CDMA Plans page still lists the $19.99 plan as having "reduced" data speeds.
I don't believe that data speeds on the $19.99 plan (or the $29.99 plan which is also listed as having "reduced" speeds) are or ever were actually throttled. Multiple users on Howard Forums and elsewhere have reported getting typical 1-2 Mbps Verizon 3G speeds on the $19.99 plan for as long as it's been available.
Here are tables listing all the currently available AT&T and Verizon based Red Pocket plans.
