Aio Wireless launches discount program for adding multiple lines
AT&T’s prepaid brand Aio Wireless has launched Group Save Discounts, a discount program for customers who want to have more lines on one account. With this group discounts program, family friendly, which will be effective starting April 12, 2014, customers can save up to $90 when five lines are combined.
Group Save Discounts program works only with a $40 Basic, $50 Smart, and $60 Pro monthly plan. The first line does not get a discount; the second line gets $10 discount; the third line $20; the fourth $30 and the fifth line receives $30 monthly discount. Aio Wireless customers who choose to enroll in auto pay will not be receiving a $5 discount.
In addition to launching new discount multiple-line plan, that’s actually one of the better ones in prepaid, Aio Wireless has applied less appealing changes as well. First, the $15 tablet plan that included only 250MB of high-speed data per month is no longer available for new customers. Also, throttled data speeds on the $50 and the $60 monthly plan, that used to be quite usable at 256 Kbps, is now additionally reduced to 128 Kbps, which is significantly slower. Throttled data speeds on the $40 basic plan (after 500 MB of high-speed data) remain the same since it already was at 128 Kbps.
Now that the $15 tablet plan is gone, Aio Wireless is offering:
- The $25 unlimited talk and text plan, good for basic phones and BYOP
- The $40 plan includes unlimited talk, text and first 500 MB of high-speed data after which data are throttled to 128 Kbps.
- The $50 plan includes unlimited talk, text and 2.5 GB of high-speed data after which data are throttled to 128 Kbps.
- The $60 plan includes unlimited talk, text and 5 GB of high-speed data after which data are throttled to 128 Kbps.
The $40, $50 and $60 monthly plan are available for $35, $45 and $55, respectively with auto pay option. Even though Aio is offering access to AT&T’s LTE and HSPA+ networks, still LTE is limited to a maximum of 8 Mbps and HSPA+ to 4 Mbps.
AT&T has acquired Leap Wireless, Cricket’s parent company, back in March. AT&T plans to fold Aio Wireless into Cricket brand. In fact, both companies will be part of “the new Cricket” brand.
