EasyGO Data Add On Card Reduced to Just 500MB

easygo-logo
Earlier today, EasyGO sent out a text message to its subscribers letting them know of some changes they have made with their $10 data add on card. Instead of the 1GB of 4G LTE data included, the card now has only 500MB. Thankfully, the AT&T MVNO did not make any changes to its data rollover feature. As long as the subscriber's number remains active, data can rollover indefinitely.

There's no word on why the change was made by EasyGO. With the change, EasyGO's Unlimited Monthly Plans now includes:

  • $20 - comes with unlimited talk, text, MMS, international text and international talk to 11 countries, 100MB of 4G LTE data   
  • $30 - comes with unlimited talk, text, MMS, international text and international talk to 80 countries, 200MB of 4G LTE data   
  • $10 data add on card with 500MB of 4G LTE data and infinite rollover

EasyGO is a brand owned by Locus Telecommunications along with H2O Wireless. It is an MVNO operating under AT&T's network.

  1. How can total wireless give away 3Gigs of rollover/non expiring data for $10 on Verizon?

    1. Tracfone's rich, has retail presence, owns a multitude of MVNOs, touts a large number of customers under its belt, and has the negotiating clout to strong-arm carriers into better rates by leveraging their risk of losing out to the competition.

      That's why their paygo rates are better.

      That, and they skimp on / outsource customer service.

    2. Because they make it magically disappear on random customers at random times so it really is just a gimmick / illusion.

  2. Probably economy of scale.
    tw is america movil, I think it is the largest or one of the largest world wide telecommunication corporations.

    1. Unlmited TnT on AT&T for $20.

      That's it.

  4. Uncompetitive plans, terrible data rates and laughable paygo prices?

    Into the trash it goes.

    1. A far away "make vacation plans to see it" cable company married to a similarly far away cell carrier.

      Well, at least worthy of consideration for giving this idea a dumpster destination.

    2. $20 unlimited TnT on AT&T and 100mb of data. Good for low end user. Into the trash OP goes.

    3. "Good for low end user."

      That's the point.

      It's terrible for general usage if you're searching the web, ordering a rideshare, watching videos, playing games, getting directions via maps, managing your finances, listening to the radio, online shopping, updating apps, checking/sending email, and video chatting with friends/family/co-workers.

      Any combination of the above can eat through large amounts of data if done on a daily basis, especially on an unthrottled Bingeless connection without throttling or zero-rating.

      Sure, you could use a man in the middle attac- I mean a "data compression" proxy to cut down on data usage, but that's a risky thing to do when dealing with your personal information.

      In the end, 100mb wouldn't last more than a day or two if you really use your smartphone as more than just a glorified walkie talkie, which is what makes EasyGo so trashy.

      Anyway, even if it still fills a single niche, that makes EasyGo by definition a bad deal for the vast majority of mainstream consumers.

      After all, trash doesn't get less trashy just because someone who doesn't use it thinks it's good for someone else who probably doesn't use it either.

      When you throw in the fact that a lot of casual "low usage" folks are also postpaid "low information" stooges, it seems that much sillier that EasyGo is targeting the consumers least likely to know their way around the prepaid market.

      Without the omnipresence of a company like Tracfone, they'd be a lot more reliant on the kind of word-of-mouth that would mostly come from data-guzzling prepaid enthusiasts, which in turn requires a much broader approach than just appealing to people who don't really use their phones that much.

      Without that approach, all they get is a nod that they're "good for casuals" right before everyone once again forgets that they even exist.

    4. "Any combination of the above can eat through large amounts of data if done on a daily basis, especially on an unthrottled Bingeless connection without throttling or zero-rating."
      And on a Binge or zero rating connection, of course, it will eat through your data if you happen to choose to visit sites or apps that the carrier disapproves of and wants you to punish for visiting.

      (That's the reality of Binge-On: a quite illegal de-facto fine by which the company punishes you for getting data from sources it does not like: and that censorship list happens to be the vast majority of companies)

      "In the end, 100mb wouldn't last more than a day or two if you really use your smartphone as more than just a glorified walkie talkie, which is what makes EasyGo so trashy."

      That is what T-Mobile and Sprint are in half... or more... of the territory of contiguous 48 states. You have to put up with little or no data (due to stingly or no roaming plans on the truly national carriers), but can talk or text in most of the territory.

    5. Thanks again to Christina for an informative factual article, without any press-release bias.

  5. The unlimited calls to Canada works Fantastic. The best I've found for that purpose after trying several others. Clear sounding direct dialing...Worth every cent..

  6. While others get competive, this one goes backward.

  7. "While others get competive, this one goes backward."

    That's the M.O. for Sprint, the major carrier Americans are most likely to throw into the trash.

  8. Other than the international stuff, isn't the $20 plan the same as Ultra's, except on the superior AT&T network? Why would someone pick Ultra's base plan over EasyGo?

    1. "Why would someone pick Ultra's base plan over EasyGo?"

      Because Ultra sounds like the cool Avengers robot, and EasyGo sounds like a toy oven.

      That decides it for me...

    2. The 100mb EasyGO Oven IS perfect for toddlers, what with its low data allotment and uncompetitive addon.

    3. or 100mb is for people who aren;t glued to their phone all day.

  9. Enter your comment... Airvoice always had a $10 card for 400 megs. as an add-on. With them going to lte and the gap narrowed to only 100 megs, I'm sticking with Airvoice....

    1. half of your 100 megs is throttled and so you get 50mb. EG still has 100mb over Airvoice. So you get 150MB with the add on. Tell me when AV gets of this throttled crap. NEXT!

  10. For some poeple this was/is perfect. My mother makes calls to Mexico ALOT and she stays on the phone for a while. This plan includes unlimited calls to 11 countries. Also, she doesnt use data consuming features much. If and if she does, she would get the add-on thing, which was about once every 3 months or so but now with h2o cutting it to 500MB, she is re-evaluating the plan.
