Page Plus Cellular's marketing manager Denny Scher announced today on Howard Forums that effective immediately, overage rates on "The 12" Plan are being lowered by 50%. Here are the new and old rates:
- Voice Minutes - 5¢ per minute (was 10¢)
- SMS - $5¢ each sent or received (was 10¢)
- MMS - 5¢ each sent or received, plus data used (was 10¢ each)
- Data - 10¢ per megabyte (was 20¢/MB)
The 12 Plan, as it's name suggests costs, $12 per month. It includes 250 voice minutes, 250 messages and $10 MB of date. To ensure uninterrupted service users can add a cash balance to their account. Overage rates are charged against the cash balance when a user exceeds the plan's induced bundle of minutes, messages or data.
The Page Plus website is still showing the old rates, but according to Scher, it will be updated in the next 24 hours.
