Cricket Wireless has plans to start a new promotion on July 21, Friday. According to the rumor mill, the carrier has plans to launch a promotion similar to the one recently offered by MetroPCS, where its customers could get 2 lines of unlimited LTE data for paying $80/month.
With Cricket Wireless planning to launch a similar promotion, this could mean that its multi-line account users have something to look forward to. As of this writing, the new unlimited LTE data plan rumored to be offered by the carrier is somewhat misleading. Despite its name, the plan does not actually offer true LTE data speeds since it limits speeds to 8 Mbps. And further to that, data speeds may be further reduced in times of network congestion if the customer has already consumed data of over 22GB in a month.
The plan comes with a price of $60/month for a single line. When auto pay is enabled, it goes down to $55. This already includes unlimited talk, text and global texting. Full service roaming is also included in Mexico and Canada.
Right now, there is no official word on any other plan changes and promotions Cricket Wireless has in line for its customers. We will have to wait until the carrier officially announces the promotion just a little before Friday.
