H2O Wireless Makes Changes to Plan Offers

h2o-wireless-new-plans

Subscribers under AT&T's MVNO H20 Wireless are in for some bad news. Earlier today, the carrier announced some changes that they are about to make on their plans and its inclusions.

No More Data Increase
Back in October, H20 Wireless increased the data of its customers. In a sad turn of events, the data increase is no longer valid. At the time of its announcement, the data increased from 3GB to 4GB. So if you are a subscriber under the $60 unlimited plan, you'll only be getting 3GB instead of 4GB of data.

Unlimited Mobile-to-Mobile Calling Availability
Another change that H20 Wireless announced was that unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling to Pakistan is now exclusively available on the $60 monthly unlimited plan. For a limited time, Pakistan mobile-to-mobile will be available.

With all these changes, the new plans offered by H20 Wireless will now be:

  • $30 plan ($27 with auto pay) - includes unlimited talk, messaging, 500 MB of 4G LTE data (hard capped), unlimited international texts, unlimited talk to over 50 countries and a $10 international calling credit
  • $35 plan ($31.5 with auto pay) - includes unlimited talk, messaging and data with first 500 MB at high speeds, unlimited international texts, unlimited talk to over 50 countries and a $10 international calling credit 
  • $40 plan ($36 with auto pay) - includes unlimited talk, messaging and data with first 1GB at high speeds, unlimited international texts, unlimited talk to over 50 countries and a $20 international calling credit 
  • $50 plan ($45 with auto pay) - includes unlimited talk, messaging and data with first 2GB at high speeds, unlimited international texts, unlimited talk to over 50 countries and a $20 international calling credit  
  • $60 plan ($54 with auto pay) - includes unlimited talk, messaging and data with first 3GB at high speeds, unlimited international texts, unlimited talk to over 50 countries and a $20 international calling credit plus unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling to Pakistan 
All the plans include unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling to Mexico under the Unlimited International Talk feature. Once the high speed data limit has been reached, the data speed is automatically reduced up to 128Kbps until the next billing cycle.

  1. PureTalk's $29 plan with 1GB of high-speed data is a much better deal now, and PT has much better customer service. H2O's autopay discount does not always come in my experience--I was never able to get it, so you may end up paying $30 for 500mb.

    1. pay 5 dollar more and get cricket you will get 5 times data than h2o ( 2.5 gb)

    2. Oh yes, much better CS. H2O CS is abysmal.

    3. H2O is a better deal for people who regularly make international calls. To make international calls on Pure Talk, you have to buy a calling card, and there is zero information on their website (I can find) on how much the calling cards are, or what the international rates are.

      That's the good thing about having a selection of MVNOs to choose from. They all offer something a little different. If you're not interested in making overseas calls, then Pure Talk looks to be a good deal if you need the extra data.

      BTW: I've had no trouble with H2O customer service, and got the $27/month price at the first time of asking. YMMV, of course.

  2. yes compared to the other MVNO's and cricket the H2O plans are really not offering anything or at least not enough to get excited about and unless h2o has got true high speed unthrottled data (and very doubtful that any MVNOS is going to have anything but lower priority on the networks) isn't the GoPhone straight from AT&T a much better option for the data?

    And now that Verizon will sell you 3 gigabytes on their network for 45 bucks with that option to buy extra data (thanks Dennis for the post) looks like the move is a foot that may have most if not all of the MVNO's on life support soon!
    and sadly Paygo options seems to be slowly going away too. (Exit PTEL)
    And even with less pseudo competition isn't it less likely that we'LL be seeing plan prices continuing to fall or maybe even start rising again for data. May not be as far off as we would like.

    1. The cell Companies are trying to basically get rid of MVNO's so they don't have to offer wholesale rates anymore. More profit for them, happy stockholders. I think its a smart move.

    3. The largest difference between the $60 H2O and AT&T GoPhone offerings seem to be the international calling. The $60 H2O plan might be better for someone who calls countries other than Mexico and Canada often. GoPhone might be better for someone who wants more highspeed data and an included hotspot.

      Speaking from my personal experience (~3 years on AT&T postpaid, 3 months on H20 prepaid), it's a trade-off; H2O offers AT&T coverage for a fraction of the cost, minus the customer service that makes AT&T great.

    4. I've never heard anybody describe att customer service as great, myself included, unless you have really low standards.

    5. On H2O Wireless I get unlimited calls and text, 500MB/month 4G data with rollover, and free unlimited international calls to over 50 countries. I spend several hours a month on calls to the UK.

      No other MVNO or network operator offers anything remotely close for that price on the AT&T network (which is what I need in my neck of the woods).

  3. Plus the fact you can set up MMS with H2O it's time to bail. Join a cricket group plan and get a line for $20

    1. Enjoy the inferior data speeds and equally poor CS.

  4. The $460 plan???

  5. One important thing to note is that unused data rolls over up to a total of 10GB. That makes a large difference in the total yearly cost.

  6. " In a sad turn of events,...' Oh, Christine, if you were ever to leave our sad little group of 'phonies' -- Now, THAT would be a sad turn of events!

    1. No point in having customers you can't make money out of.
