New Plan Offerings

Hello Community,

 

I currently have the $25 monthly plan, I have had to purchase add-ons on several occasions.

 

Anyone planning to upgrade...any thoughts.  The $41.25 monthly plan looks intriguing.

 

Is it worth it to change from 3G to 4G speed?

if you need one time to buy it add-ons it's ok but if need time to time it's too expensive.

 

Plans with 3G speed may reach download speeds of up to 3 Mbps,

and plans with 4G speed may reach download speeds up to 100 Mbps, with the coverage and reliability of the LTE network. Speed and signal strength may vary with your device, configuration, Internet traffic, environmental conditions, applicable network management and other factors.

 

e.g. Mercedes vs Ferrari ... so in the end both is drive.

@Eliza5 -if you had to regular buy data addons, then it is likely you may benefit from upping to a higher data bucket plan. It is very easy to change plans through your My Account, and the beauty of public mobile, is, you can try it for 30 days or so, and if you went too high of a plan, then you just change to another one.

 

Remember to choose to change plan on NEXT Renewal. As if you change plans NOW you will not get prorated the $'s you already prepaid in your current cycle.

 

I have not switched a plan to 4G myself. But again, try it and see if you like. You can also switch back on future renewals.

 

edit, spelling

Is all the internet usage you do with your 1gb and add-ons being given to you at an acceptable to you speed? Perhaps moving up to the $35 plan would be a more economical idea. Or if the add-on purchasing is only every several months, maybe the infrequent $15 cost is better than the every 30 days extra 10 bucks.

Guess that will depend on your data needs going forward.

Personally...I'm ok with the 3G speeds that I have now....but I don't download movies or tunes using data either.

Are you happy with the 3G speeds or do you ever find yourself wishing you had 4G speeds ?

@Eliza5 If you haven't noticed any slowness on the current $25 3G plan, you won't see a big difference with 4G plan. Things might load quick, but hard to notice. I suggest you try out the $40 5GB at 3G speed plan for 30 days before trying the 4G plan.

the LTE network. speed and signal strength may won't see a big difference from 3/4/5 G,

but depends on your device configuration, e.g. if you have 5 years old device, the speed same with device 6 month old or new.

 

i did some research,about  3/4/5 G, it's all same just cost more money but
they doing to given more limit data,to pay more,
but the device is the big deal to used to get the fast speed.

Currently only have 1GB and would be nice to have at least 2GB per month without having to purchase add-ons or use the reward points.  

 

My understanding is if one switches to one of the new plans they can't switch back to the original plan.

I am currently using a GPS style app on a daily basis which consumes most of my data.
