  1. This company needs to be competitive if they want to stay alive. With these plans they won't make it for long.

    1. Not necessarily, especially considering their competition do not advertise in their target audience's native language.

    2. You mean English in America? Oh the humanity.

    3. .... which, SDLock, would leave these Univision plans extremely vulnerable once the competitors make a strong push for Spanish language advertising.

      Can't say it isn't already happening, either: a LOT of the pop-up ads I get in my phone game apps are for T-Mobile in Spanish, for no good reason that I can see. But it shows T-Mobile going after this market now.

    4. @ Anonymous February 4, 2015 at 6:49 AM - I seriously doubt any more of the 4 carriers and their respective MVNO would concentrate too much on a massive Spanish advertising campaign like UNIVISION, especially the better value ones.

    5. Fun fact, Spanish speaking people actually can and do buy products and services in English. Univision can sell their service in any language they want, if they want subscribers, English or Spanish speaking, they need to offer competitive plans and give people a reason to choose their service.

    6. @ Anonymous February 4, 2015 at 9:05 AM - ACTUAL FACT: Spanish-speaking folks, especially those that are only fluent in Spanish, are more gravitated towards products and services publicized and advertised in Spanish.

    7. Zach: Spanish was spoken much earlier in the United States than English was....

    8. That maybe, but I doubt they're willing to pay more money for less just because it's in Spanish. If another provider offers what they want at a lower price in English, they'll forget what language Univision, and any other overpriced operator, is advertised in.

    9. @ Anonymous February 4, 2015 at 10:29 AM - You're missing the point. That is the WHOLE reason why this MVNO is marketed in Spanish: to entice Spanish-speaking folks here who don't know any better. Yes, the Spanish-speaking population may outright pay for something that costs more just because it's marketed in Spanish. But if it's the first thing they see that they can actually UNDERSTAND, and it's better than what they already have, chances are that they will jump on board.

    10. So, what you're saying is that all overpriced carriers will soon be advertising in Spanish, can you say Verizon Wireless in Espanol.

    11. The big 4 carriers and the TracFone brands have been running Spanish language ads on Spanish language TV and in print publications for years. Virtually all companies with a significant ad budget advertise in Spanish, the Spanish speaking market is too big to ignore.

    12. Which was my point to begin with. Spanish or not, Univision needs to be competitive and their current plans don't cut it in any language. No one is going to pay more just because they advertise in Spanish.

    13. I'm pretty sure other providers have Spanish literatures of their products and services (I believe it's the law that they must provide it in Spanish... Though why only mandate such preferential accommodation for Spanish-speaking people and not speakers of French, Chinese, Arabic, etc. in the U.S. is beyond me), but I have not seem them in Spanish nearly as much as Univision. Univision is the ONLY MVNO I've seen at local stores that is obviously marketed towards Spanish-speaking folks where I live. They have next to no English marketing. So that's a clear indication that they are trying to win over Spanish-speaking customers through familiarity. Some people, especially the ill-informed, do inadvertently pay more for this perceived ease of access.

    14. There isn't any law that requires anything to be in Spanish. What country are you in?

      Telcel America is also marketed in Spanish and has been around a lot longer than Univision.

  2. Do these plans offer 3G, 4G or LTE?

    The T-Mobile plans compared page says each Univision plan offers 2.5GB at a different speed.

    Do these plans include unlimited international calling to landlines in select countries?

    1. All the univision plans include LTE. The international calling and roaming included with Univision plans is not unlimited. each plan includes an international calling and roaming credit of between $15 and $55 per month.

  3. To be more competitive Univision reduced the $45 plan's high speed data from 2.5GB down to 2GB. How does this make any sense?

  4. Cuba is now included in Univisions' International calling.
