Cricket Data-Only Plans
Recently, Cricket Wireless began offering a data-only plan to its subscribers called the “Simply Data” plan. Cricket devices like mobile hotpots and tablets support these new plans.
Simply Data is available in three options, starting at $25. The three tiers of the plan are:
- 3GB data for $25
- 10GB data for $35
- 30GB data for $70
Each data-only plan comes with high-speed data at 4G LTE speeds, unlimited text and picture messaging across the US, and high-speed browsing, streaming and downloading.
For more data, Cricket offers two different data add-ons. A subscriber can pay $5 for an additional 2GB and $10 for 5GB.
Details on the Data-Only Plans
The data-only plans include nationwide 4G LTE on AT&T’s network. Subscribers can expect speeds up to 8Gbps, DVD-like quality video streaming, high-resolution content and unlimited SMS and MMS messaging.
The downside of the data-only plans is that there will not be any voice service (phone calls) or international messaging. Also, by using high-resolution content, users can go through data quickly.
