AT&T MVNO Good2GO Mobile Gets Competitive With More Data

AT&T MVNO Good2GO Mobile is looking a lot more attractive after some recent plan changes:

  • The formerly data-less $30/month unlimited talk and text plan now includes 500 MB of data.
  • The $40/month unlimited talk and text plan gets its data allowance increased from 250 MB to 1 GB.
  • The $50/month unlimited talk and text plan gets a data increase from 1 GB to 2 GB.
Data includes 4G HSPA+ but not LTE. If you need more data it's available at 500MB for $10 or $20 for 1 GB. Added data expires at the end of the current plan month.

The new data allowances make Good2GO a lot more competitive. Good2GO's plans and pricing now match those of popular AT&T MVNOs H2O and Airvoice. Unlike Airvoice, Good2GO doesn't cut off your data off halfway through your included amount and make you contact them to get the second half. On the other hand, unlike with H2O, there's no LTE.

Good2GO is probably not a good choice for compulsive picture messengers and iMessage users. Good2GO's monthly plans are limited to just 100 MMS per month with no way to buy more. As with most AT&T MVNOs,  MMS is difficult, perhaps impossible, to get working on non-jailbroken iPhones.

Besides the monthly plans mentioned above, Good2GO has some rather lackluster 5 and 15 day plans and a pay as you go plan. Good2GO is also a Sprint MVNO with the same plans available on Sprint as well as AT&T.

  1. Cricket looks better as they offer more data and throttle... not shut you off once reached the data allotment.

  2. Any tricks for getting a cheap Sim card from them?

    1. Ask them for a free SIM. It works sometimes.

  3. Looks like H2O still remains the best value among AT&T MVNOs for people who know how to control their usage.

    1. I had H20 and they had the worst CS.

    2. Many MVNOs have poor customer service compared to their native carriers. The question is how frequently do you actually need to contact their customer service? If not often, then there is no problem. If you're the type that must rely on customer service to do everything for you rather than handle it yourself through online dashboards most providers have, then you better be prepared to pony up the money. With that being said, if you feel that H2O is really just that bad to the point that you have to constantly reach out to their "worst CS," feel relieved that at the end of the day you have a GSM phone and are free to jump ship to another AT&T or T-Mobile MVNO with ease rather than ending up with a worthless phone on the CDMA (Verizon or Sprint) spectrum.

    3. Not a Verizon fanboy by any means, but I wouldn't say their phones are "worthless". I know someone right now who managed to get the Verizon DROID Turbo fully working on T-Mobile. Also, most people who go with Verizon as their provider, are not excessive phone swappers or have intent to bounce around to different carriers or MVNO's. Most people who do end up leaving VZW, is usually due to them not being able to keep up with their bill.

  4. I am wondering what other pay as you go do you recommend? Lyca pay as you go increase talk to 5/cent and no data.

  5. Hmmm… Pay-as-you-go looks alright. 5 cents a minute. Check. 5 cents per text. OK. 50 cents per MB. Wait... WHAT?!

    1. That means 10MB only costs $5. What the problem be?

      Delete
    2. At that rate for data, pay as you go looks like a "feature phone" only deal if for some reason you couldn't use H2O or a T-Mobile MVNO.

      Delete
    3. With a 30 day expiration and $20 minimum top-up, not a good pay-as-you-go value.

      Delete
  6. These plans should be listed on the Sprint plans compared page. I wonder if they offer LTE on Sprint?

  7. I've tested their CS,. They are okay. Better then the likes of H20 /Jolt and Tracfone , not as good as Air Voice or Ptel. The quality is somewhat uneven depending on which shift you get. The 100 mms thing is unusually low but the fact that it doesn't have the split data thing and runs on 4g hspa plus makes it almost directly comparable to most of Air Voice's plans. It would be a good alternate for AV people who don't want to deal with split data but if you picture message a lot, not a good choice. I hope they are able to keep up more with all the changes in this business. A lot of other Att mvnos are getting more stuff like lte and etc, so it would be good if Good 2 Go decided or exerted some influence to keep up instead of falling behind for as long as they did.

  8. Does Good2Go have anything to do with Real Mobile? They seem similar to me.

  9. Real Mobile Att side was a sub mvno of Good 2 Go but their Sprint divisions appear to be separate. Not sure if Real Mobile still has an Att/gsm side but from the looks of their current website, doesn't look like it. Rates are different for one thing.
