PagePlus Adds More Data to $55 and $69.95 Plans

Page Plus - More Data
TracFone's 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.

  1. Why would anyone use Page Plus, when Total Wireless gives 5 GB of Verizon data for $35 - with an additional 3 GB of rollover data available for $10?

    So with Total you get 8 GB for $45, and you get carryover of the last 4 GB.

    1. not 4GB, you can carry over only 3GB.

    2. As a current Total Wireless customer on a shared plan, I get good coverage and data speeds, but I can't depend on accurate data tracking. The website account data total always differs from the text sent total. I wish they could keep better numbers but you get what you pay for.

    2. Yep, $10 good for 120 days is about all they have to offer of any interest. Of course they charge .50/mo. even if you never use the phone. Glove box or extremely light user only phone plan.

    1. They already have, TracFone, bought Page Plus a couple of years ago. Total Wireless is a TracFone brand.

      TracFone's strategy seems to be to have many brands to gain retail shelf space and to make customers think they have choices.

  7. To little, too late. VZ prepaid has much better CS and no throttled data, At&t and cricket are cheaper with more data.

    1. When you pay Verizon directly they collect the same state and local taxes as if you bought a Verizon airtime card at Target or Walgreens. Page Plus does the same plus 1.7% in junk fees.

  9. The only true company to so with that uses verizon post paid contract coverage full tower use with free roaming is selectel wireless I been using them for years and have no issues in most areas and lots of areas where page plus and others don't work when mine does.

    1. Selectel does not include full Verizon post paid roaming coverage for data, they do for voice & text. Boom does provide full postpaid Verizon network roaming coverage for data in addition to voice and messaging. Boom's plans are very competitive vs. Selectel, probably many could save money or get more for their money with a Boom plan vs. Selectel.

      I admin. quite a few phones with service on both Boom and Selectel and am happy with both companies although Boom is new so those accounts are 6 mo. or less old so time will tell. In most cases lately Boom is getting the business when we look at best cost for the account's needs though. I hope Selectel decides to stay competative, maybe they are waiting to see if Boom is still around after 18 months or so, I hope they both thrive.
