Cricket Wireless Getting Ready to Unveil New Data-Only Plans

cricket-wireless-simply-data-plans
Cricket Wireless is gearing up to unveil a new series of wireless plans under a new moniker, Simply Data. 

According to reports, these are data-only plans that are designed for use on hotspot devices, phones and tablets. 

According to Wave7 Research and Magic Tech Reviews, Cricket Wireless could potentially launch these plans on the week of April 14. There are also reports pointing to a hotspot device that could be launched alongside these plans. This report comes after AT&T filed a trademark name application for Cricket Turbo Hotspot last February 19th. The application was approved for publication almost a month later. Reports also show this hotspot device will be launched at a price of $120. 

As for the Simply Data plans, Cricket Wireless is said to offer these options: 
  • $25 per month plan - comes with 3GB of LTE data
  • $35 per month plan - comes with 10GB of LTE data
  • $70 per month plan - comes with 30GB of LTE data ($65 per month after auto-pay discount)

These plans do not have multi-line discount options. Magic Tech Reviews also shared that these plans will not have a speed cap. 

There are two add-on options available, in case data runs out during a billing cycle: 
  • $5 - 2GB of data
  • $10 - 5GB of data

This has not yet been officially announced by Cricket Wireless. We'll know more about Simply Data plans real soon.

  1. 3GB @ $25 plan isn't that great of a deal (TMO Prepaid has 2GB @ $10 and 6GB @ $25), but the 10GB @ $35 plan saves $5 over TMO.

  5. $70 for 30GB of data is not good. We watch movies and other shows on our tablets and use that much in about 2 weeks. Plus we use it to do homework and also use it on the road. Need to be mobile and cheap. AT&T use to have 2GB for $25, this is no better.
