Improved lowest tier and new high tier give customers better data options

Prepaid carrier Simple Mobile is rolling out a new three-tier plan structure that offers more choices and data for your money at each level. When looking for a new plan, potential Simple Mobile customers will now have three options when it comes to smart phones:

  • $40 per month for unlimited talk, text and data, first 500MB at 4G speeds
  • $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and data, first 2.5GB at 4G speeds
  • $60 per month for unlimited talk, text and data, first 4GB at 4G speeds 

The $40 plan has doubled the amount of full-speed data it offers from 250MB previously, and the $60 plan is all-together new with the most data ever offered by the carrier. Although it is running on T-Mobile's network, the new Simple Mobile plans beat T-Mobile's own prepaid pricing at each tier as far as data allotment is concerned. Much the same as T-Mobile, Simple throttles down usage once you hit the specified data allotment, which is far preferable to overage charges for most people. And being a prepaid service, you can always re-up your monthly payment and start a new month early if necessary.

Additionally, Simple Mobile is improving its international calling options, adding a new Pay-As-You-Go option for $10 that can be added to any plan at any time for international calls, even mobile-to-mobile. Its stand-alone unlimited international calling plans have been refreshed to fall in line with the new data plans, offering 500MB, 2.5GB and 4GB of 4G data for $50, $60 and $70, respectively.

Simple's new plans are set to be completely available tomorrow, but some of its pages have started to come online with the new plans now. It's great to see more prepaid carriers adapting their plans to meet market pricing and customer demands. You can see all of the details behind Simple Mobile's new plans at the source link below.
