Cricket Wireless Now Offers Nationwide 5G

Last month, Cricket Wireless announced that AT&T will be making its 5G network available to customers of the prepaid brand throughout the country by August 21st. And true enough, they have turned this network on and they are now ready to give their customers access to 5G.

In order to get 5G access. however, the AT&T prepaid brand has limited this to select plans. As of this writing, 5G is only available on the top tier plans that Cricket Wireless is offering: the $60 per month unlimited plan; which comes with unlimited talk, text, high-speed data and 15GB mobile hotspot data.

You can also opt for one of the data-only plans that the prepaid brand is offering. 5G is included in its three Simply Data plans:

  • $35 per month plan - includes 20GB of high-speed data
  • $50 per month plan - includes 40GB of high-speed data
  • $90 per month plan - includes 100GB of high-speed data

When it announced its 5G launch last month, Cricket also mentioned that they will be offering a 5G capable device. This device is the Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G that you can get for $1,199.99. Right now, this is the only 5G capable device that you can use with Cricket Wireless. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is also not available as an option right now.

In addition to the 5G launch announcement, Cricket has revealed that they now offer support for Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay. You can use either of these payment options at any of their branded retail locations or on the myCricket app.

Customers are also getting a treat since Cricket has announced they will be giving a free 30-day HBO Max trial. You just have to log in to your account and create an account on the HBO Max link so you can start watching the movies and TV shows available. After the 30-day trial period is over, your account will auto-renew and will charge you $14.99 per month. So if you deem that this is no longer needed, you will have to cancel through HBO Max.

  1. At his time on Aug 24 2020 the only way Cricket could really offer nationwide 5G is if they use the TMobile network. ATT has a scant tiny portion of the USA covered with 5G at this time....just saying.........
