reported that AT&T MVNO Airvoice Wireless (888-944-2355) had made changes to two of their plans. The changes included increased data and the elimination of "split data" on the $30 and $50 unlimited talk and text plans. It turns out there's a little more to the story than I originally reported.
The $30 plan is indeed getting more data, 1 GB instead of 500 MB per month and the $50 plan is going from 2 GB to 5 GB. But there's a catch, only the first half of the data, 500 MB on the $30 plan and the 2.5 GB on the $50 plan, will be delivered at full HSPA+ 4G speed. The second half of the data will be throttled to a lower speed, which I suspect will be 128 Kbps.
While the news isn't quite as good as it first sounded, I still think it's a huge improvement.
Before this change, Airvoice would shut you data off after you had only used half of it and you had to call or email them get the second half. That was the single worst thing about Airvoice and now it's gone
The $30 plan has as much high speed data as ever and the $50 plan has a bit more. Both plans now include some bonus throttled data and best of all, users never have to call in to get all the data they paid for.
According to an Airvoice representative, the company's $40 and $60 plans, which had 1 GB and 3 GB of split data respectively, are being phased out.. There are no other changes to plans and the $50 plan still includes unlimited international calling to over 70 countries.
