Page Plus Cellular Verizon MVNO added more data to its two most expensive plans today:
- The $55 ($50 with autopay) per month plan now includes 8 GB of high speed data instead of 5 GB
- The $69.95 ($64 with autopay) plan goes from 7 GB to 10 GB of high speed data
Both plans also include unlimited 64 Kbps throttled data after the first 8 or 10 GB as well as unlimited international texts and a $10/month international call credit.
These data increases by Page Plus follow similar recent increases by AT&T's Cricket and GoPhone, Verizon Prepaid and T-Mobile's MetroPCS. While more data is always nice, when compared with its most direct competitor, Verizon Prepaid, Page Plus' new plans are unimpressive. Starting Nov 13, 10 GB on Verizon Prepaid is $70/month, a mere 5¢ more than Page Plus. However, Verizon Prepaid's plans include hotspot and tethering, a higher 128 Kbps throttled data speed, 24/7 support and data that rolls over for 30 days, all of which Page Plus lacks.
Verizon Prepaid doesn't have a direct competitor to Page Plus' $55, 8 GB plan but Cricket and MetroPCS do. Both offer 8 GB for $50/month, $5 less than Page Plus. Cricket and MetroPCS have have faster 128 Kbps throttled data and their plan prices include all taxes and fees, unlike PagePlus. MetroPCS allows hotspot and tethering at no extra charge while Cricket charges an extra $10 for the privilege.
