GoSmart, a T-Mobile MVNO owned by TracFone, has recently made changes to its plan offers. The last time the MVNO made changes was around January 2016, which you can view here.

Today's plan changes brings in more data as compared to the previous allotments included. There's even one plan that includes what GoSmart promises to be a Completely Unlimited data plan at 3GB speed.

The MVNO's new plans offer the following:

  • $25/month - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 1GB 3G data
  • $35/month - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 5GB 3G data
  • $45/month - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 20GB 3G data
  • $55/month - Includes unlimited talk, text, and Completely Unlimited 3G data with 10GB hotspot and $10 international long distance credit

Prior to today's changes, GoSmart's plans offered the following: 

  • $25/month - no data
  • $35/month - included unlimited 4GB of data
  • $45/month - included 12GB of data
  • $55/month - included 20GB of data 
As seen on the list, GoSmart has increased the data allotment on these plans to give its users more value. In addition to the increased data, GoSmart has also included in free 4G LTE Facebook and Facebook Messenger access across all plans. 

Are you a GoSmart user? How do you feel about these plan changes?

  3. Who's still making 3G only phones? BLU?
    Who pays these kind of prices for 3G data?

    1. 3G speeds, not 3G network. It connects to LTE where available, but throttles the high speed to about 1 Mbps (give or take), with the exception of Facebook, which is delivered at full LTE speeds.

      Zuckerberg Zombies Unite @ full speed LTE.

    3. Facebook exempted from throttle? So, paid fast lanes have already begun? At least Facebook's paying for it, I assume.

  4. 3G,,,,,Seriously?

  5. I love all these new unlimited plans, but I really wish we'd see better low usage plans. $25 for 1GB seems like a rip-off compared to $55 unlimited. One plan is subsidising the other.

    1. Totally agree but they have to keep the prices on the low usage plans higher to supplement the higher use customers.

    2. It's more to push people towards plans that cost more money than anything else. They'd rather have 10K customers paying higher amounts than 20K paying for cheaper plans. I'm guessing they pay a flat rate per account and then the usage of all those accounts combined. Under such a setup they likely make more money since a fair amount of customers won't use their accounts to capacity.

  6. "GoSmart has also included in free 4G LTE Facebook and Facebook Messenger access across all plans."

    Is the 'free 4G LTE Facebook and Facebook Messenger access' shape of things to come upon repeal of Net Neutrality?

    1. GoSmart has been doing unlimited Facebook for several years now, actually. That part isn't any different.

    2. In this case it's probably a marketing tool, but it's not far off. Telcos will charge one end or the other more for priority access and de-prioritize everything that doesn't pay the ransom.

    3. FCC decided that free Tmo video, free Facebook and Messenger did not violate NN. Don't ask why; they gave reasons, but no carrier could have known those in advance. This was a big problem that inhibited some investment in new services.

      Delete
    4. It was a "big problem" because it inhibited carriers from investing in more content throttling and double-charging scams.

      I find this to be a good thing :(

    5. You've partaken of the Kool-Aid if you believe net neutrality rule hurt investment.

    6. It only hurts investment in data throttling schemes and double-charging scams. Because of that, I am glad for whatever investment net neutrality harmed.

  7. Their data speed is about 3G speed (~1mbps)... Straight talk, Simple Mobile and Walmart Family Mobile has better deals.

    1. Similar to what US mobile did

  8. This is terrible! It's no bargain at all. MetroPCS and Cricket have offerings that are way more competitive. I guess Tracfone is banking on the uneducated customer.

    1. I'm not sure what base network this runs on, but if it is on Verizon, it is significantly better than MetroPCS, and ends up not being a bad deal.

  9. 3G CDMA on Verizon is so slow as to be just about unusable.

    1. What is this unusable speed for 3G Verizon CDMA?

    2. Weren't people watching youtube on 3G Verizon 10 years ago? And not 240 youtube either, surely it was 480 youtube.

    3. I just wish for 700 mhz TMO signal to come on board, so that TMO can then be a real competitor in the indoors arena.

      Delete
    4. You mean 600 MHz, anon1122

      Delete
    5. Actually, it's both 600 and 700 MHz. Tmo hasn't deployed all its 700 MHz yet, and is still waiting for approval to use TV spectrum cleared in a couple of places.

      Delete
    6. 480p is trash now because videos are optimized gor 720p or higher.

      At the time, 480p brought you the best picture quality.

      Now it's the absolute worst, most blurry quality you can watch on.

      It doesn't even have a retro 80s VHS filter to snazz it up, ehich makes 480p just downright terrible.

      Delete
    7. 480p is DVD quality, which is perfectly fine on a small phone screen. Can you tell the difference with 720p? Sure - if you're really looking, but the difference is hardly "terrible."

      Delete
    8. I can tell the difference... Anyone can, S Ape. But I don't find it to be a big deal, really. And it depends on what I am watching.

      Delete
    9. ..S Ape, I guess 480p is "terrible" to entitled millennial eyes which feel that anything worse than 4k video, even in a 3 inch screen, is a crisis worthy of a petition drive.

  10. Wonder if and when net10 will get some love.

    1. Never.

      They don't need it, so it's basically a legacy brand at this point.

      Delete
    2. I'm honestly surprised they didn't capitalize on the legacy name for that period of time when $10/GB for data was a good deal. Missed marketing opportunity for sure since that's no longer the case.

      Delete
    3. A good legacy name for Net10?

      Sorry, it sounds as good as Packard Bell in that department for me.
