Last year, ROK Mobile had no choice but to start throttling data instead of offering unlimited data. Considering they charge $49.99 per month for 5 GB of data, it's a pretty hefty price for their customers to pay. And comparing this to the price charged by other Verizon MVNOs, it seems unfair to be paying such a huge amount for something you can get cheaper elsewhere. To add, there have been a number of complaints about ROK Mobile's music streaming service.
These issues may soon be taken care of with the latest announcement ROK Mobile made on its Facebook page. According to the MVNO, they will once again be operating under Sprint's network along with Verizon.
Now that they are extending their service to Sprint's network, the MVNO has added new plans:
- $20/month - includes unlimited talk, text, and 500 MB of hard capped data
- $30/month - includes unlimited talk, text and 1 GB of high speed data
- $40/month - includes unlimited talk, text and 3 GB of high speed data
- $50/month - includes unlimited talk, text and 5 GB of high speed data
The top tier also comes with ROK Life Premium Life plan, an insurance service that includes roadside assistance, telemedicine, accidental death insurance, and many more.
With the MVNO's decision to run Sprint's network once again, it is hopeful it will be able to extend its services to those who prefer this carrier over Verizon. Hopefully, ROK Mobile learns from its mistake and will make this a permanent solution.
