There have also been some changes to BYO's plans and pricing.
- The $5 plan now includes 10 MB of data instead of none
- The $10 plan now includes 25 MB of data instead of none
- The $30 1000 minute, unlimited texts, 400 MB and the $40 unlimited talk and text 500 MB plans have been discontinued.
- There are new $55 and $70 unlimited talk and text plans with 1.5 and 2.5 GB respectively.
- $5 - 100 minutes or 1000 texts or 250 MB (was 100 MB)
- $10 - 250 minutes or 2000 texts or 500 MB (was 250 MB)
- $15 - 500 minutes or 4000 texts or 1 GB (was 400 minutes and 400 MB)
The best news is that BYO is now doubling the amount of data with all plans for customers who enroll in auto pay. The double data for auto pay finally makes BYO pricing competitive with other Verizon MVNOs. It does seem like a rather extreme way to encourage users to enroll in auto pay. I'm not so sure about BYO charging the same prices for T-Mobile based service. Users expect to pay a premium for Verizon coverage, but not for T-Mobile, especially without
Here's a table showing the new plan lineup:
|Price 1||Talk Minutes||Texts||Data Without Auto Pay||Data With Auto Pay|
|$5||100||100||10 MB||20 MB|
|$10||250||250||25 MB||50 MB|
|$15||350||unlimited||50 MB||100 MB|
|$20||500||unlimited||250 MB||500 MB|
|$35||1000||unlimited||500 MB||1 GB|
|$55||unlimited||unlimited||1.5 GB||3 GB|
|$70||unlimited||unlimited||2.5 GB||5 GB|
Update 12/12 6PM. BYO is now saying LTE is enabled on their GSM plans and that they have no immediate plans for service on the AT&T network.
