U.S. Cellular has made new changes to its lineup of prepaid plan options to better fit the demand of its market. According to U.S. Cellular vice president of brand management Grant Leech, "February and March are popular months for prepaid wireless purchases, so our updated plans provide an even better experience to our current customers as well as any consumers looking for a better prepaid deal."

With the new changes in place, U.S. Cellular's prepaid plans now include the following options:

U.S. Cellular Simple Connect Plans:

  • $30 per month - Includes unlimited text, 500 minutes of calls, and $0.03/MB of high-speed data

    1. Looks like USCC has a bit of monopoly in their markets. Those rates are not very competitive.

    2. Do the prepaid plans have less coverage than postpaid offerings? How is their coverage compares to Verizon?

      1. USCC isn't a carrier that really competes nationwide (though rumored agreements with T-Mobile might soon change that.) But they do serve large areas where they are the best choice, or at least a markedly better choice than cheaper priced competitors.

    3. These do not seem very competitive. Even Verizon's prepaid looks better.

    4. 1. $25 plan - Includes unlimited text, 100 minutes of calls, and 1GB of high-speed data
      = Choose T-mobile's $30 Plan includes 100 minutes of calls, and 5GB LTE data.
      2. $35 plan - Includes unlimited text and calls, and 1GB of high-speed data
      = Choose Virgin, Total wireless, T-Mobile both they offer 5GB of LTE data.
      3. $55 plan - Includes unlimited text and calls, and 8GB of high-speed data
      = Choose Cricket or Metro PCS both they offer 8GB of LTE data with $50.
      4. $75 plan - Includes unlimited text and calls, and 12GB of high-speed data
      = Choose Verizon, Cricket, and etc. Some carriers offer unlimited data. At this point most of carriers will offer at least 10GB.

    5. I live on the edge of USC territory and I will tell you, it's Verizon or USCC 20 miles east of me, nothing else works. It's disgusting. I can't take my Cricket phone with me, only my Republic phone because it roams for free on voice and text. These guys get these trash prices because they run the market in eastern Wisconsin and western Illinois. I hear Idaho and parts of Virginia and the Carolinas are like this, too. At least they have solid roaming agreements but I'd shoot myself if it was the only carrier I could use. I do hear the data is unlimited, though, just deeply throttled after you pass your allotment, to the tune of 64 and not 128.
