, an MVNO that operates on all of the major carrier networks, recently added two new prepaid plans to its list. Previously only offering hard capped data, it looks like Boom! Mobile is finally trying to appeal to heavy data users; The two new plans offered include unlimited data.
Here are the plans:
- $19.99 – No data, unlimited talk and text
- $19.99 – 250MB hard capped data, unlimited talk and text
- $29.99 – 2GB hard capped data, unlimited talk and text
- $34.99 – 2GB high speed data, unlimited talk and text
- $39.99 – 5GB hard capped data, unlimited talk and text
- $44.99 – 5GB high speed data, unlimited talk and text
The new unlimited data plans increase by $5m but customers can receive the first 2 or 5GB of data at high speeds, before being throttled to 128kpbs. Data top-offs are still available for purchase. 1GB goes for $10, 2GB for $14, and 5GB for $30.
Honestly, this seems like a pretty good deal. Boom! Mobile is very competitive with their pricing. Even Verizon’s prepaid plan (which includes 2GB at high speeds) runs at $45 a month—$10 more than Boom! Mobile. All plans offered by Boom! Mobile also include voice, text, and data roaming, which is what really sets them apart. Most prepaid networks in this price range are unable to offer the additional features.
These plans all operate on Verizon’s network, but there are a couple plans that you could choose to be on T-Mobile’s or Sprint’s network. The business plans, by contrast, operate on AT&T. Boom! Mobile is a fairly new company, but has generated a lot of buzz with their affordable plans. You can learn more on the Boom! Mobile website
