page-plus
Page Plus Cellular, an MVNO running under Verizon's network has just increased the high speed data allotment on one of its plans. Announcing the new change, Page Plus sent out a release to its followers with the new inclusions of the plan.

Under the same $39.95/month plan, Page Plus has increased the high speed data allotment from 1.5 GB to 3 GB. This means that with the new change, you can enjoy no-contract unlimited talk, text and 3 GB of 4G LTE speed data for only $39.95 per month. The new plan is available starting May 9, 2016.

  1. What's the precursor to doubling data now? I must say it's generous. Who's most likely to compete up to the new bar they set? Can I expect all MVNO's to respond by increasing their own data. What will Tracfone do?

    1. PagePlus is part of TracFone so TracFone has already done something.

      Either Verizon gave TracFone a better deal on data or TracFone is trying to squeeze out the competition. Other MVNOs may not be able to respond unless their MNO cut its wholesale data price to them too.

    2. Verizon and Tracfone are in the same bed. yes they want to squeeze out the competition. Like Verizons' Shammo has said "Tracfone is our prepaid brand". Verizon is giving Tracfone whatever it needs to gain foothold in "its entry" into the emerging and growing prepaid market. Just look at AT&Ts Cricket last Quarter 500k gains. T-Mobile 800K that is huge. Verizon wants in and they have ALWAYS planned on doing it by using the Tracphone brands and Walmart stores (foot traffic) to do it. I know Walmart, they want to sell the best of everything (Verizon Best Network) at a great value. Everyone always has said that being on Verizons Nework comes at a premium not no more. Verizon Network through Tracfone at Wally World Stores. Just the way Verizon always wanted. Now with even more 4G LTE choices.

  2. I'd rather just pay $5 more and get full speed service on Verizon Prepaid. They have rather generous add-on data packages as well that last 90 days.

    1. Nothing of Verizon is generous...

    2. ...Except for its actual network.

  3. Still no reason to ever do business with an America Movil owned MVNO, save yourself the grief and frustration.

    Maybe they made this move in an attempt to staunch the rate they are bleeding customers fleeing their horrendous "CS".

    I do hope Selectel can respond to match/beat it though.

  4. "Still no reason to ever do business with an America Movil owned MVNO, save yourself the grief and frustration."

    There's a big reason: to get the best "can actually use the phone!" coverage on the Verizon network, without having to deal with actual Verizon (rather high priceS) or all the little Verizon-based MVNO's which can shut down and take your money with no warning.

    1. I guess you don't know that Selectel is backed by a big, well-funded company. Or that Red Pocket is a stable, successful MVNO that has been around for a long time. Either of them is better than any America Movil carrier.

    2. The same could have been said of PTEL and others that suddenly vanished. Yes, other "stable, successful MVNO's that had been around a long time."

      In contrast to these fly by night ones (all of which can be said to be backed by someone well-funded somewhere), the biggest 4 carriers and American Movil are huge companies that won't just suddenly go bankrupt and shaft you like the fly-by-nights have been doing a lot lately.

      If and when these huge companies die, it will make top headlines weeks or months in advance. They simply can't get away with pulling tricks that the fly-by-nights have been getting away with lately.

    3. And yet Movil brands are bleeding customers. Why? Their HORRENDOUS CS, total disregard for the customer who is just a bother to deal with and who is to be dismissed as quickly as possible, rudely if necessary.

      If you like a Movil brand it is only because you have never had to experience their "CS" or only had to do the most rudimentary task with CS.

      God help you if you ever have a real issue or problem, no resolution will ever happen and you will be out money, service, maybe both. Just don't do Movil brands, don't fall for the lure they are tossing in an attempt to stem their falling subscriber numbers, your life will be better.

  5. +10 for Selectel. Better to pay more for them or for Verizon Prepaid than getting into a very frustrating situation with an AM company.

  6. Case in point about the volatility of the fly-by-nights (and why it is risky to be involved with them)

    http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2016/05/defense-mobile-is-shutting-down-at-end.html

    (New headline: another fly-by-night is shutting down in a mere few weeks)

    There goes another one. And when Movil makes changes like this, it announces them months in advance.

    1. Get a grip. Selectel and Red Pocket are not risky carriers.

    2. Case in point, nearly 460,000 subscribers flee tracphone last quarter alone, profits down nearly 25% last quarter.

      http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2016/04/america-movils-tracfone-loses-458.html?m=1

      Once you do Movil you never go back, smarter yet to never do them at all.

    3. From the article linked above

      "TracFone, the largest US MVNO, reported this week that it lost 458 thousand customers in the quarter ended March 31, 2016. This is the second quarterly subscriber loss in row by TracFone, which until Q4 ,2015, had a long history of successive quarterly subscriber increases."


      "TracFone's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) also took a big hit last quarter, falling by 24.2% year over year. The decline was mainly due to a 22% drop in EBITDA from device sales."

  7. I need unlimited calling so I have to get the 39.95 plan regardless of hardly ever using over 500MB a month. It is nice to have 3 gigs for the same price though.

  8. I'd rather go Straight Talk or Page Plus since they already offer 4G LTE. Going with a company that hasn't supported 4GLTE long means issues with the Data suddenly stopping, Going through hoops to get your LTE device working and sometimes getting it activated on 3G only when its supposed to use 4G LTE.

    Page Plus however is really not bad for an MVNO of Verizon. There are those independent dealers who will bend over backwards to make you happy. At least it was that way in Elizabeth City, NC before I had to move to deltaville, VA.

    1. I have actually moved plenty of people off Movil "brands" who wanted Verizon network to Selectel and Red Pocket, never an issue, no data interruptions. Selectel coverage was a step up from Movil in some areas, much better quality signal noted by a few.

      Delete
    2. PagePlus dealers had their commissions cut in half so they can't afford to spend time making customers happy any more. Selectel really takes care of their dealers and pays them enough to properly service customers.

      Delete
    3. Those independent dealers are probably less enthusiastic since Movil bought Page Plus then shut down their USA based CS (after saying nothing was going to change with their acquisition of Page Plus) and now have cut those dealer's commissions and spiffs to nearly nothing.

      An ethical dealer I am friendly with has discontinued selling anything Movil (before the commission cuts). He and his customers are doing just fine.

  9. Selectel's not bad, but I'd avoid their dealers.

  10. Successful MVNOs find a niche and target their marketing and advertising to avoid competing head on with the mass marketers. Examples:
    *I think Selectel is doing a good job by catering to dealers and including the Verizon Extended Network coverage at no extra cost.
    *Red Pocket offered a network for everyone since 12/13, and seems to target subscribers who need international calling or foreign language support.
    *Ting targets families and businesses who want to control costs via plan sharing and dashboard controls, and want good customer service and off-network voice-text roaming at no extra cost.
    *Consumer Cellular primarily markets to seniors, with attractive pricing for couples and families and full postpaid coverage with roaming.

  12. No one in the USA needs to settle for America Movil brands. You can get great prices and much better customer service with other MVNOs on all 4 major networks.

  13. The only thing I hate about Pageplus is this miss calls. They don't show who the call is from. You receive text messages saying me. 😟
