  1. Close, but still not as good as my T-Mobile secret plan which gives me free text, 5 GB of LTE data (with at least 100 MB useable for free tethering), and 100 minutes of voice (with 10 cents each additional) for just $30.

    1. What's free tethering?!

      Delete
    2. Free tethering is the other reason to root your phone (the first being ad-blocking EVERY app).

    3. *not so secret plan

    4. I think this plan allows for free tethering of the entire 5GB. Of course, since there's no separate tethering bucket, you'd be done with your data if you choose to tether it all away.

    5. Secret Agent Man, let us know one of your secrets...

      You said "with at least 100 MB useable for free tethering"

      That's awful vague and wishy-washy, you know. Tell us exactly what the maximum data you can use for tethering under the Secret Plan is each month.

    6. It's far from secret.

  2. Total wireless beats that plan of yours bubby. 35 you get unlimted talk and talk and 5gb data. and if you sign up for auto pay and comes down to the same amount.

    1. But does it tether?

      Delete
    2. Also, do you get unlimited 128kbps data once your 5GB is used?

      Delete
    3. Taxes and fees are not included in 35

    4. Total = Carlos Silmes Movil customer disservice circus, no tethering, no roaming for voice, messaging or data and magically disappearing data allotments after which clueless customer disservice is clueless/useless and powerless to help.

    5. happy with AT&T GoPhone $45 plan 4GB where with rollover this month have over 6GB, with 128kbps unlimited data afterwards, and tethering can be used for all data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and ppm international calls. CallCentric brings monthly costs with promo codes down to $40 per month, no extra taxes fees. so what to any secret plan.

      Delete
    6. How does using CallCentric, a VoIP operator, reduce the cost of GoPhone airtime?

    7. I bet he meant to type callingmart.

      Delete
    8. sorry. meant callingmart. always get the two mixed up.

    9. Total Wireless has two advantages

      1) It is a huge company, and not Lyca, a tiny PTel-like MVNO which will shut down with two days notice and lose your phone number.
      2) The native coverage, for your calls and data, is significantly larger than Lycamobile.

      ----------------

      Other than that, the criticisms of Total Wireless seem fair.

    10. Lycamobile is not that small. They operate MVNOs in 21 countries, claim to have 15 million customers worldwide and reported $1.6 billion in revenue 2015. That doesn't mean that they aren't capable of shutting down their US operation down tomorrow if they think it's under performing.

  3. And bad, really bad latency with data round-tripped to the UK?
    Pass....

    1. I thought I read that Lyca Sim no longer goes through UK?

      Dennis?

      Delete
    2. Correct, Lycamobile hasn't used UK servers since 2014.

      Delete
  4. it is good to see the price of data is falling!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I wish they allowed at least voice and SMS roaming because T-Mobile network is limited.

  6. Dennis, you should make some corrections to this Lycamobile Double Data offer.
    According to their website and confirmed with phone customer service this offer is for new customers only.
    The Double Data is for the FIRST MONTH ONLY and reverts back to regular data rate after the first month.
    Taxes are included and there is no tethering allowed.
    Offer expires at the end of January, not March.

    1. The new $23 offer and the older $35/$45 deal are separate promotions. The latter has been around for a couple months and expires on 1/31/2017 according to the fine print on Lyca's web site. No expiration is listed for the $23 promotion - just "limited time offer."

  7. I'm surprised no one has come on here claiming that since the T-Mobile network doesn't work for them, it can't possibly work for anyone else...

    1. It doesn't cut it for most Americans, but it cuts it for 71 million Americans. That's nothing to sneeze at.

      I am much more underwhelmed by this weak deal from Lyca than I am concerning T-Mobile.

  8. I don't understand these companies doing "Promotion" things in these days. Metro PCS, Cricket, and H2O launched "Promotion" plan. Why don't just launch the plan not as promotion? They are glancing each other for dirty competition.

    1. They are experimenting. They want to find specials that will bring people over to them without too much loss in profit. If they make the plan permanent, then they lose a lot of money when their existing customers switch over (or leave when prevented from doing so). Getting more customers requires marketing, marketing costs (lots of) money, that money's got to come from somewhere.

      It'd be nice if there was a company which cut costs to the bone and charged us as little as possible to provide service, but that's not very realistic (RingPlus' numerous problems and instability are a prime example). If you don't market yourselves, how do you grow anywhere near as quickly as your competition who does? The answer is you don't and you eventually die.

      As much as we all hate marketing, we wouldn't be aware of very many options in life without it. I wouldn't mind some significantly more stringent truth in advertising laws, however.

  9. Honestly, all H20/Locus and Lyca are doing is the "Strategy of Tactics" that Boost mobile used for so long. It's basically not having a TRUE strategy, an end game so they substitute short term promos left and right to see what sticks and whenever one short term promo or special ends (phone discounts, lowered plans prices, autopay discounts, port in discounts, anything that will add to their business) they replace it with another. It's a clear sign they have no real idea what they are doing hence the "throw it at the all and see what sticks " approach. Lyca's biggest issue is it doesn't have an identity. They try to be like Ultra but nobody beats Ultra as a Tmobile mvno who is strong for international caller and now they are trying to slug it out with H20, a more established (In the USA at least) company and with better inherent coverage to boot (Att native vs. Tmobile native). Really, Lyca's got to get an identity. I guess their identity right now is seeing what makes them the most money.
