Europe’s MVNO Lycamobile launches in US, offers limited time promotions
Lycamobile, the largest Europe’s MVNO, has recently launched its prepaid service in the United States. Lycamobile uses T-Mobile network, offers Unlimited and Pay As You Go options and provides a free SIM card for its users. Currently, all unlimited plans are available for lower monthly rates due to a promotion that’s good through April 30, 2013.
Lycamobile’s unlimited plans start at $29 per month:
- $29 unlimited plan includes unlimited nationwide talk and text without data. Currently the plan is available for $19 until April 30.
- $39 unlimited plan includes unlimited nationwide talk, text and data with first 100 MB at fast 4G speeds. Currently, the plan is available for $29 until April 30.
- $49 unlimited plan includes unlimited nationwide talk, text and data with first 250 MB at fast 4G speeds. Currently, the plan is available for $39 until April 30.
Lycamobile’s Pay As You Go option is also available: 2 cents per minute, 4 cents per text and 6 cents per MB. The international texting is 12 cents per text. The minimum refill is a $5 every 90 days.
Lycamobile also has international calling add-ons available in its offerings. Unlimited calling to 50 countries is available for $10 per month while for 65 countries, it’s $20. However, as a part of a promotion that also ends April 30, Lycamobile includes free international calling to $39 and $49 unlimited plans but calls are unlimited for only first 10 dialed numbers. The $39 plan includes free unlimited calls to 50 countries while $49 plan offers calls to 65 countries, both to first 10 numbers.
Lycamobile is the largest mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) in Europe with 20 million customers in 16 countries. However, in the United States, it’s launched only two weeks ago. Therefore, troubles with ordering a free SIM that users are reporting or any other inconvenience that its website is causing is kind of understandable if they sort things out soon.
