Consumer Cellular Adds ZTE Mobile Hotspot, Offers $20 Invoice Credit For Activating New Line Of Service
Consumer Cellular, wireless provider for AARP members that operates on AT&T and T-Mobile networks, has introduced a new portable internet hotspot to its customers. Consumer Cellular adds ZTE mobile hotspot that their customers can use for WiFi access when they are away from home. The device uses cellular signal to provide 4G LTE connectivity for up to 10 devices and costs $80.
The hotspot will be added to user’s existing service plan and will use plan’s data so therefore, the user must have one of the Connect Plans that include text messages and data. ZTE Mobile Hotspot’s battery will last up to 14 hours if one device is connected or 8 hours for more devices at the same time.
The carrier says that ZTE Mobile Hotspot shouldn’t replace user’s primary internet service. Consumer Cellular’s largest plan includes 4GB of data so only users that use data minimally could consider it as the only option. Customers who have questions about hotspot can call the customer service at 888-345-5509.
Available Connect Plans with text messages and data include:
- $2.50 monthly plan – 300 texts and 30 MB of data
- $5 monthly plan – 1500 texts and 150 MB of data
- $10 monthly plan – 3000 texts and 500 MB of data
- $20 monthly plan – unlimited text and 1.5 GB of data
- $30 monthly plan – unlimited text and 3 GB of data
- $40 monthly plan – unlimited texts and 4 GB of data
In addition, Consumer Cellular gives $20 invoice credit to customers who activate a new line of service. This holiday promotion is available for new customers who activate a new line of service or the existing ones who add a new line to their existing account. Also, if users add multiple lines to their account, they will get $20 invoice credit per each new line. The $20 credit will be applied to user’s first invoice after activation. The offer is good through December 31, 2015.
Consumer Cellular also offers special benefits for AARP members. The benefits include a 5% discount on their monthly fees and usage charges and a 30% discount on select accessories.
