The prepaid price war continues this month with Cricket Wireless, AT&T’s prepaid MVNO brand, slashing the price of its top-tier plan from $70 to $60. This comes only a month after Cricket
added data


to the non-unlimited plans and a couple weeks after announcing it would be offering better streaming options to save data.
In addition to unlimited calls and texts to the United States, Cricket’s $60 plan also include unlimited calls and texts to Canada and Mexico, unlimited voice and data while roaming inside of Canada and Mexico, and unlimited texting to 38 other countries (MMS not included). The $60 unlimited data plan does have a caveat that after the first 22 GB, unlimited users may be throttled during peak times. Additionally, hotspots are not available on the unlimited plan.
Here’s what the plan lineup looks like right now:

  • $30 – unlimited talk and text in the US, 1 GB high speed data, unlimited lower speed data
  • $40 –* – unlimited talk and text in the US, 3*GB high speed data, unlimited lower speed data
  • $50*– unlimited talk and text in the US/Mexico/Canada*, 8*GB high speed data, unlimited lower speed data
  • $60 Pro – Unlimited talk and text in the US/Mexico/Canada*, 12 GB high speed data, unlimited low speed data
  • $60* – unlimited talk and text in the US/Mexico/Canada*, unlimited high speed data

*At least 50% of your usage must be in the United States
This is undoubtedly to try and help make Cricket a bit more competitive as MetroPCS added a $60 unlimited data plan just a couple of weeks ago. Boost has offered unlimited data for $50 for a while now (although streaming is not in HD). However, as far as AT&T network goes, this is probably one of the best data deals. Even AT&T’s own GoPhone plans don’t offer any kind of unlimited high speed data options.
However, it should be noted that multiple users have recently complained that Cricket’s network has been a little laggy and may have a lower priority than AT&T’s other plans, making your connection and signal not quite as good. Regardless, this is still a pretty decent deal.
Cricket Wireless allows users to either purchase or activate their own device, and offers a range of international service options. To check out the full list of devices and services, visit the
