Boost Mobile to raise pay-as-you-go rates

Boost Mobile sent out text messages to its pay-as-you-go customers informing them of a coming rate increase. According to the company’s Facebook page, calls will go from 10 cents per minute to 20 cents, as will text messages. Wireless web will increase 15 cents, from 35 to 50 cents per day. The rate increase will apply to new customers only; current customers will remain at the former rate until their accounts go inactive or they change their plans. ]]>

    I’m glad I read this.
    I almost let my Boost PayGo lapse. I only have it as a backup, but I do use it at times and 20 cents a minute is absurd.
    10 cents I can handle.
    I’ll keep adding the $10 Minimum every three months just to keep it active.

    Well they also will raise it to 20 cents/min if you upgrade your phone.
