Lycamobile updated their website to indicate that they had increased the amount of high speed data included with their $35 plan from 1 GB to 4 GB. The $45 and $55 plans also got high speed data increases, from 3 GB to 6 GB on the $45 and from 5 GB to 8 GB on the $55. The site even included a banner (see image) indicating the new larger data amounts.
The plans also included unlimited talk and text and unlimited throttled data after the high speed allotment would used up. An unlimited plan with 4 GB of high speed data for $35/month would be a pretty good deal. However the deal apparently never happened.
Things started to unravel on Feb. 14 when Lycamobile's Plans page was changed to show only 2 GB, instead of 4GB on the $35 plan and only 4 GB instead of 6 GB on the $45 plan. At the same time the banner showing the larger amounts also disappeared from the home page. Another page on Lycamobile's site still showed the higher limits as recently as yesterday but no longer does.
I wonder what happened? Did T-Mobile not give Lycamobile the data pricing they expected? Or did Lycamobile management have a change of heart? We will probably never know, Lycamobile customer support is confirming the lower high speed data limits and is calling the earlier higher ones a mistake. Too bad, $35/month for 4 GB would have been very competitive, but 2 GB for the same price nothing special.
