TPO Wireless Changes Its Phone Plans, Welcomes New Network Partner

tpo-wireless-plans
Sprint MVNO The People's Operator Wireless has given its cell phone plans an update, completely scrapping off the old plans they offered to their customers. 

New Phone Plans

  • Kind Plan ($14/month): Includes 1,000 talk, unlimited text, and 500 MB of 4G LTE data
  • Noble Plan ($25/month): Includes unlimited talk and text, 2 GB of 4G LTE data
  • Caring Plan ($35/month): Includes unlimited talk and text, 3 GB of 4G LTE data 
  • Hero Plan ($40/month): Includes unlimited talk and text, 5 GB of 4G LTE data 
  • Gracious Plan ($60/month): Includes unlimited talk and text, 7 GB of 4G LTE data 
Tablet Plan

  • Tablet Plan ($20/month): Includes 2 GB of 4G LTE data  

Each TPO Wireless cell phone plan comes with unlimited data with throttling to 2G or as low as 64 kbps once the allotted high speed data has been used up. The prices on this list are with a $5 auto pay discount. So if you don't want auto pay enabled on your account, the prices will be $5 more. State or local sales taxes, fees or surcharges not yet included.

In addition to updating its selection of cell phone plans, the carrier has also added a new GSM network partner. Based on the low pricing provided by the MVNO, it looks like they have added T-Mobile on board.

  1. Wow! There $15 & $25 plans are pretty awesome. Now with T-mobile GSM support even better. Better than MetroPCS. But, I am very paranoid about MVNOs that aren't part of the Big 4, after PTEL and GIVmobile's sudden demise.

    1. I agree, those cheaper plans look good. This may be where I go to after RingPlus implodes.

    2. Me too. PTel handled its demise terribly, even keeping it secret on their web site.

      "Buyer beware" of going with an MVNO or wireless operator that is NOT a division of the Big 4, or US Cellular, or the Carlos Slim operation (which despite its problems and complaints, has immense staying power and isn't going to close suddenly and run away with your money).

    3. Definitely, seems to good to be true. Anyone know how much it would cost here in Texas after taxes and fees?

    4. Fear and paranoia make you miss the best things in life and best prepaid phone service companies.
      AirVoice, Consumer Cellular, Kajeet, PureTalk, Selectel, Ting, and Truphone are my favorites. They are all independent, successful, stable and a pleasure to deal with.
      No Fear.

    5. It's not fear. It's realism. PTel used to be on the list that you gave. Then they suddenly closed. keeping it a secret on their web site for while, and running away with people's money.

      The fact remains that these little fly-by-night ones are much more likely to fly-by-night than the much more legitimate ones.

    6. "Fear" and "paranoia" were quotes, not my words.
      And "keeping it a secret on their website for a while" is pure, cynical speculation since you haven't a clue when they decided to close.

    7. "And "keeping it a secret on their website for a while" is pure, cynical speculation since you haven't a clue when they decided to close."

      Actually, I saw it happen (no guesswork on my part), so it is clear that you are just making stuff up to back your weak case concerning fly-by-night operations.

      When PTel said it was closing, I checked their web site. Their web site had absolutely nothing to indicate they were closing at all. In fact, they were still advertising and selling new accounts.

      They finally changed it several days later, to reflect that it had gone out of business. Before they did, in this several days long window, the company presented an "all going well" face to customers who visited the site.

      They neglected to do the responsible thing by putting it on their web site right away when it was announced here and there through press releases.

      This lack of attention by them only compounded the problem made by their ridiculously short "port out" window: if PTel had announced the closure on the web site at the proper time, many more people would have been able to port out instead of lose money and phone numbers.

      I have no idea WHY they decided to close: your claim that it involves that is just your making stuff up. I do know that they did a poor job of telling customers about it: a very lousy job, considering that it would have taken a teenage web kid 15 minutes to update the site to mention the closer in a timely fashion.

      Again, "buyer beware" with the fly-by-nights. Being informed presents is from being shafted by these shoestring operations.

    8. TPO is a public company listed on the London stock exchange. They are far from a fly by night company. I use their service and they are great.
      The reason any carrier throttles someone back is because they use up their data allowance it's pretty simple. If you need more data after you have surpassed your limit you just purchase another 1 GB of data and you are good to go with 4G data again.

      Delete
  2. Almost perfect with the addition of GSM, but unusable 64kbps throttle kills the deal.

    1. You can just purchase an extra Gb of data if you run out.

      Delete
    2. When you run out of your data, why wouldn't you Just buy an extra Gb for $12.

      Delete
    3. If they are going to rip you off on data prices at least they could do is rollover data for your blocks you buy. The going wholesale rate for 1gb block is about 5, retail its about 10, anything over that and they are playing with pricing models

      Delete
  3. I'm not able to determine on their site if these new plans are prepaid or postpaid no contract. Reading from BestMVNO https://bestmvno.com/tpo-wireless-offering-winter-sale-50-off-cell-phone-plans-and-tablet-plans/ , it seems TPO had BOTH on their old plans.

    1. Based on their "Unlimited Goodness" name I think the current plans could be postpaid.

      The old postpaid plans were called "Unlimited Monthly Goodness" and the prepaid plans were "Goodness to Go".

      Delete
  4. Typo and missing tag.
    The Gracious Plan lists a price of $65 instead of $60 (with autopay) on your list. And a (t) should now be added to TPO in the News by carrier column.

    ReplyDelete
  5. That's a mighty big jump from Hero to Gracious for only an extra 2GB of LTE.

  6. The bigger news here IMHO is they've finally dropped the absurd credit check that was previously required. I guess someone inside the company finally woke up and realized people didn't want a hard inquiry to sign up for a prepaid cell phone plan.

    1. Actually they only required a credit check in the past if you were going with the postpaid plans. if you hose their prepaid plans there was no credit check required. Need to gets your facts straight.

  7. TPO Mobile is a public company listed on London and they are very financially sound so they will be here for a long time. The other great thing about TPO that's not mentioned is that aside from their very aggressive pricing, all subscribers get to choose their favorite charity or cause and TPO will donate 10% of each months plan cost to that charity. They also donate 25% of their corporate profits to causes as well! Now that's a mobile carrier you can actually like!

    1. I would rather donate directly and get the tax deduction.

      Delete
    2. Then you should but I bet you won't.
      TPO shaves 10% off their revenue to enable people to donate each month to any charity of their choice. The way I see it, you get a great priced plan, and pick any charity for a donation each month with no extra effort from the individual and it also makes them feel great that they are helping a charity that's near and dear to them.
      Sounds much better than most of the other money hungry carriers.

      Delete
    3. At least you recognize money hungry carriers are money hungry carriers, even when they charge 20% more and give half to charity.

      Delete
  8. How much are taxes, fees, surcharges and other foolishness? Is it the typical 10-20% in other post paid plans? Just trying to compare apples to apples here.

    1. Last year, TPO quoted taxes and fees of $6.97 to me on the $39 prepaid plan with a San Francisco, CA billing address.

      Delete
    2. I still don't understand why taxes and fees are not just included in the per month fee, and I still don't understand from a legal standpoint why you can be ripped off with random taxes and fcc universal 'diasy festival for all the crew, because we have guns 'fee'', and the universal hooker fee for that one fat bald guy that has way too many walkie talkies fee. (aka, give me money because I am a lawyer and I do nothing for society fee). Then you prepay and all of a sudden all those fat guys are left without their drugs and prostitute money. Can anyone explain that?

      Delete
  9. I think taxes and fees are added to theses prices, so $14 might really be $19

    1. From the fine print on the TPO site: "Plans prices do not include state and local sales taxes, fees and surcharges, such as the Universal Service charge and an administrative charge of $1.00 may apply."

  10. Ultra Mobile Multi-Month is still the best deal around for Single Lines. $228 for 12 months of Unlm/Unlm/1gig per month. Using my eBay bucks next month to save a bundle :-) eBay link:

  11. I live in NC and am on the Goodness to Go More $15 plan. My total charge with tax is $17.78. It should be noted that the $5 auto-pay discount on the new plans is only offered to new accounts. If I want to change to a new plan and get the discount, I have to port out and port back in with a different email.

  12. Can anyone confirm the GSM plans have 64kbps after LTE runs out?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The TPO site says; "After allotted data amount, your data speed will be reduced to as low as 64Kbps for the remainder of the 30-day cycle."

      Delete
    2. Yes it does but used up the 500mb yesterday and now I have no data at all but still LTE signal. My account says I haven't used any data. Even tried to load google.com before going to bed and it never loaded. Haven't heard back from customer service.

      Delete
  13. TPO also enables anyone to purchase an extra 1 GB of data for $12 if you have used up your data on your plan. This way you can choose to continue with LTE or go with the 64 Kbps

    1. Pre V.92 dial up modem speeds WOOOO! (choo choo train noise), I think minimum they should throttle is 128k so you are at least ISDN speeds.

  14. i am having issues setting up TPO for data/MMS and their CS is sloppy after 72 hrs there was no response. when i called them, they said they would email an new APN in 5 mins and it has been 8 hrs and no response .this is after the customer trying to contact proactively to have the problem resolved. how is the CS response for the rest of the folks with TPO.

    1. TPO GSM data settings are:
      APN: wholesale
      MMSC: http://wholesale.mmsmvno.com/mms/wapenc
      Leave other fields at their default values.

      Delete
  15. Unfortunately TPO although not a part of America Movil, seems to share a common trend with America Movil companies... Bad customer support. It also took them 3 days to answer a question I had about their taxes. I thought I had seen their APN settings somewhere in their website.
    Good luck!

    1. Ptel went out of business to rip off customers millions and millions of dollar.
    2. Customer service help is zero if you have financial issues.
    See Ting which is probably the worst.
