Airvoice Wireless offers only half of newly added data on $30 and $50 plans at high speed
Airvoice Wireless has increased data recently on the $30 and the $50 monthly plans to 1GB and 5GB, respectively but increased data aren’t all at high speeds as earlier reported. Only half data on these plans are at high speeds. The $30 plan went from 500MB of data to 1GB but only 500MBs are at high speeds (HSPA+). The $50 plan has gone from 2GB of data to 5GB but only 2.5GB is at high speed. The second half of data on both plans will be throttled to around 128 Kbps.
Airvoice Wireless has also discontinued the ‘split data’ practice on both plans which requested calling customer service for allowing second half of users’ data. Now that it’s gone, customers can use their own, paid data without any interruptions.
The rest of the plans that Airvoice is offering, the $40 plan with 1 GB of data and the $60 plan with 3GB, will be phased out, according to Airvoice customer service representative. The changes are already effective although they haven’t been reflected on Airvoice Wireless’ website yet.
After the changes, Airvoice plans look like this:
- Pay as you go (a $1 monthly maintenance fee) – $10/90-day, $20/120-days and $30/150-day cards; 10 cents per minute/text/MMS and 6,6 cents per MB;
- $10 – includes up to 250 minutes or 500 texts; 4 cents per minute; 2 cents per text; 6,6 cents per MB; 10 cents per message; 10 cents per international SMS; 10 cents per international MMS
- $30 unlimited plan – unlimited talk and text/picture messaging, 1 GB of data with first 500MB at high speeds, unlimited international texting and up to 300 minutes of international calling for the first month for new customers
- $50 unlimited plan – unlimited talk and text/picture messaging, 5 GB of data with first 2.5 GB at high speeds, unlimited international texting and unlimited calling to more than 80 countries
The $10 Talk and Text 30-day plan and the Pay As You Go have also been improved but regarding turning off messages that customers are receiving after every call, SMS, MMS or data usage. Those messages inform users on how much the last usage costs. In order to turn them off, users need to call customer support and request it.
