Starting February 16, Cricket Wireless will offer a year of unlimited data to customers who will switch carriers for just $40 a month. In addition to unlimited data, the network operator stated that the customers who will avail of the promotion will also receive unlimited calls when calling to and from Canada, the United States, and Mexico, as well as unlimited text messages from the United States to 38 countries, including France, Germany, and Singapore. In order to avail of the reduced monthly charges, the customers should sign up for the network operator's Unlimited 2 Plan and enroll in the company's Auto Bill Pay service. Subscribers will receive a monthly credit of $10 for one year by choosing the Unlimited 2 plan, while the tech company will offer an additional $5 monthly bill credit to people who will take advantage of its Auto Bill Pay service.
Cricket Wireless also highlighted other promotions that it is currently offering to people who are planning to switch carriers. For example, the network operator is currently offering up to four Android smartphones for free to its customers. Users may receive a unit of the Alcatel Verso or the LG Fortune for free for every line. This promotion was first announced last month, and interested consumers may still take advantage of the promotion until April 12th or until smartphone supplies last. In addition, the carrier is also offering four unlimited data plans to customers for just $100 a month or two unlimited data lines for a monthly fee of $80.
Aside from its unlimited plans, Cricket Wireless is also offering cheaper options with monthly data allocations. One of these cheaper plans costs $30 per month, and it already includes 2GB of data, as well as unlimited calls and texts across the United States. Meanwhile, for customers who will enroll in the carrier's unlimited data plans, it is important to note that the company limits the data speed reached by its subscribers to 3Mbps. The tech firm also limits the resolution of the video streams to standard definition (SD). Like many carriers in the United States, Cricket Wireless also implements deprioritization, which means that subscribers may experience reduced data speeds once their monthly data consumption exceeds 22GB.
