prepaid mobile broadband plans. The biggest change is that there are no longer separate plans for tablets as opposed to other broadband devices such as hotspots and laptops.
The good news is that prices are generally better for broadband device users and about the same for tablet users. The bad news is that the $5 tablet day plan is gone and the price of the largest package, 10 GB, has increased to $100 from $80 for tablet users and $90 for broadband customers.
It's not all bad news however, $35 and higher packages are now good for two months instead of one. Current users on the old plans are presumably grandfathered as long as they don't let their plans lapse.
Here's a table listing the old and new plans for comparison
|Price||New||Old Broadband||Old Tablet|
|$5||300 MB (one day plan)|
|$15||500 MB (1 week plan)||250 MB (1 week plan)|
|$20||1 GB ( 1 month plan)||1 GB (1 month plan)|
|$30||2 GB (1 month plan)|
|$35||2 GB (2 month plan)|
|$40||4 GB (1 month plan)|
|$50||6 GB (1 month plan)|
|$60||5 GB (2 month plan)||3 GB (1 Month plan)|
|$80||10 GB (1 month plan)|
|$90||10 GB (1 month plan)|
|$100||$10 GB (2 month plan)|
