Consumer Cellular Changes Plans, Adds More Data and Fewer Talk Options
AT&T MVNO Consumer Cellular has ones again changed its monthly Talk and Connect plans. Instead of offering four monthly talk options, the carrier has lowered the choices to two plans. Consumer Cellular changes the Connect plans, too, by offering fewer options but with more usage.
What’s used to be $10/Pay-Per-Use (25¢/ min), $15/250 min, $20/1500 min and $30/unlimited talk plans is now 250 minutes for $15 per month and unlimited minutes for $20 per month.
Also, the carrier has altered its text and data plan. First of all, all Consumer Cellular Connect plans now include unlimited texting which wasn’t previously the case. The $2.50 and $5 plans were offering limited number of texts, 300 and 2000, respectively. The $2.50/300 texts and 30 MB data option is now discontinued while $5 monthly plan offers unlimited texting (was 2000 texts) and 250 MB of data, (was 200 MB). The rest of the text and data plans have all received data increase. The $10 plan with previously included 500 MB of data now has 1 GB. The $20 plan offers 3GB of high speed data instead of 1.5 GB while $30 monthly plan comes with 5GB instead of 3 GB of high speed data. The biggest data increase, however, receives the $40 plan that went from 5 GB of high speed data to 10GB.
