Straight Talk, an AT&T MVNO and one of the most popular prepaid carriers in the U.S., has increased its data allowances by 500MB without bumping prices. Though the carrier still advertises its $45 per month plan as "unlimited," following mild outrage it has chosen to clarify that users are throttled after a certain point of data usage. At the time of clarification Straight Talk was offering just 2.5GB of full-speed data, and has now bumped that to 3GB at no additional cost.
The extra 500MB of full-speed data applies to its $45 U.S. plan and $60 international plan. Straight Talk claims that's up to 10 times more data than other prepaid $45 plans, and that's roughly accurate, depending where you look. Straight Talk continues to be one of the best prepaid choices in the U.S. for unlimited talk, text and data at a great price, with the added bonus of having the choice of both AT&T and T-Mobile networks and the ability to bring your own phone.
