Pure TalkUSA Offering Double Data for the Same Price

pure talkusa-double-data-plans
Pure TalkUSA has just jumped on the bandwagon of MVNOs offering more data to its customers without increasing its prices. Earlier today, BestMVNO reported that the AT&T MVNO has sent out text messages to its customers informing them of a new increase in their data.

According to the report, starting sometime in July, customers o the $35 cell phone plan will be enjoying twice as much data for the same price. This means that instead of getting 2.5 GB of data, they will enjoy 5 GB of data.

After confirming the report, Pure TalkUSA has revealed the other information about the new double data plans. The other plans included in this promotion are:

  • $24/month plan - 1 GB of high speed data (instead of 200 MB)
  • $29/month plan - 3 GB of high speed data (instead of 1.5 GB)
  • $35/month plan - 5 GB of high speed data (instead of 2.5 GB)
  • $45/month plan - 7 GB of high speed data (instead of 5 GB)

All these plans include unlimited talk and text.

Apart from offering double data on these plans, the MVNO is still offering multi-line discounts on the new plans. The discount applies to:

  • 2 lines: 10% off the bill
  • 3 lines: 15% off the bill
  • 4 lines: 20% off the bill

Lastly, customers who signup with the MVNO before June 30th can get their first month of service as a free trial. To learn more about this promotion and other details about Pure TalkUSA, visit the website.

updated July 5, 2017: the new plans are now live on the Pure Talk website.

  2. Just a friendly FYI, double the data is not a promotion. These will be permanent offerings.

  3. I wouldn't use another deprioritized AT&T MVNO unless the price was $20/5GB.

    1. Thats a lot of data.
      Maybe start off slow?
      What about 1 gig and unlijited 128 kbps afterwards?

    2. It's not a lot of data for net junkies unless you're already carrying around a backpack full of hotspots.

      Delete
    3. Pure TalkUSA is not that bad with regard to being deprioritized. I just notice it now and then, usually not at all.

      It would be more useful if you would tell us who you had problems with (and where) when complaining about being deprioritized.

    4. Cricket and H2O.

      It seems like anything below Gophone went to shit, at least in this area.

  4. Taxes added or included?

    Tethering allowed?

    1. Pure Talk does not collect taxes. I could not find anything in Pure Talk's terms of service prohibiting tethering.

      Delete
    2. Tethering is not permitted. I did email them. Just got my response today.

  5. A couple of notes about Pure Talk after having them for I think it's been 4 years now.. Super good customer service with domestic people answering the phone...Also all data is at full speed which is a plus to most people..My only negative is they have no accomodations for you if you travel to Canada or Mexico..

    1. Is data full speed LTE or slowed down like on Cricket?

    2. Pure Talk data is not throttled.

  6. I wonder what h20 will settle on?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Isn't Pure TalkUSA data hard capped instead of throttled?

    ReplyDelete

    1. That's correct, Pure Talk data us hard capped.

      Delete
  8. Not bad. A switch would at least get me a free month. Can't imagine it'd be worse than h2o :/

    ReplyDelete
  9. Have had both H2O and Pure Talk...No comparison IMO...H2O was slow and buggy in comparison to PT.. don't know why since both are ATT service..But there is a nite and day difference for me. Plus H2O was very slow in busy times...PT doesn't seem to be effected like that..Go figure

    1. I agree. I've been with PureTalk for a month and their c/s is the best I've ever encountered (and that's been many) with US based c/s reps who know their stuff. My port in from Google Voice was done quickly and in fact, I got a call from their port department telling me it's complete..wow, impressed. Absolutely no glitches with their service..I'm staying. Two of my sisters are on their free month trial and both porting away from At&t postpaid after paying $100.+ for years. It's a new day with these MVNO's offering much better deals. The biggest loser continues to be Verizon postpaid according to their customer losses.

  10. I have tethered with an app for a few years now on PureTalk....No issues

    1. Hey can you please let me know the app you are using? I would like to do the same.

  11. Thank you for the update. This an attractive offering given their good customer service. I can vouch for that as I was a past customer before getting cell service through a former employer. One question is, can go phones be activated out of the box on Pure Talk?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Go Phones can be activated, provided they are unlocked.These are great plans, and no throttling!

    1. Gophones do NOT need to be unlocked to be used on most AT&T MVNOS including Pure Talk.

      Delete
    2. I don't think gophones have to be unlocked.

    1. Yes, absolutely! I swap my PureTalk sim between my iPhone and android..easy peasy.

  14. I just noticed while checking out that they do charge taxes now. As I was getting ready to process my payment, I noticed that it added taxes to the total about 5 dollars a month for the 29.00 plan. Looking at the bottom of the page in small letters, I saw the following...

    *Federal universal service charges, FCC regulatory fee, state and local taxes, e911 fee, fees & surcharges and regulatory and compliance fees are billed monthly and are subject to change.

    1. I was not charged extra fees or taxes as of the end of May 2017.

      Delete
    2. In the two plus years I've been with them I've never been charged taxes. OP, are you in the state of Georgia? If you are that could be the reason why you were charged.

      Delete
    3. I am in California actually, not Georgia. I was also shocked to see the 4.92 charge on the plan as well.

      Delete
    4. https://www.boe.ca.gov/proptaxes/pdf/lta16023.pdf
      Possibly because they have a presence in California?

    5. Live in California and was not charged taxes on last payment billed on 6/10.

    6. I was charged tax on 2 sims ordered this week, with a note that after the free month, taxes and fees will be $6.95 monthly on the two plans. ($24 & $29) This is for NY.

      Delete
    7. Correction: I am now being charged about $2.70 in taxes total for two phones. I didn't noticed as PureTalk now rebates 10% for two lines which more than compensated for the taxes.

      Delete
    8. My last billing for the two $12.95 lines changed to $10.51 + $1.15 in taxes per line. ($25.90>>>$23.32) So in effect my cost per line was reduced to $11.66.

      That would mean you are correct, PureTalk rebates 10%.

  15. I just wish these AT&T MVNO's would offer WIFI calling and VoLTE like the T-Mobile MVNO's do!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. California newly permits taxes up to 20% on prepaid phone service. Cricket, T-Mobile and Metro eat them. Other vendors probably can't afford to.

    Of course, this is nothing compared to the $50B gas and car tax hikes they just passed (despite the governor promising all tax hikes would go to a vote of the people), and the 15% payroll tax they're proposing to pay for Single-Payer-Healthcare-For-All.

    1. "(Yes, I'll be moving.)"

      There are plenty of states where the government is less greedy and steals less from the people. With your civically informed attitude, you'd be a benefit as voter in any state.
