Lycamobile ends promotion, increases 4G data allotment in its plans
Lycamobile, the Europe’s largest MVNO launched in the US few months ago, has started a promotion lowering the plans’ pricings for $10 per month. Initially, it was intended to last only through April 30 but the carrier has extended it to June 30. Now, Lycamobile has ended the promotion by increasing the prices of the monthly plans for $10 but at the same time, it improved its unlimited monthly plans.
Lycamobile has added data and international call credit to $29 unlimited talk and text only plan. Now it includes unlimited data with first 50 MB at 4G speeds and $2.50 credit for calling international numbers. In addition, the carrier has increased the high-speed data allotment to the $39 and $49 plans to 250 MB and 1 GB, up for 100 MB and 250 MB of high-speed data, respectively. Also, these two plans now include unlimited international texts.
Improved Lycamobile monthly plans now include:
- The $29 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 50 MB at 4G speeds and $2.50 international call credit.
- The $39 plan – unlimited talk, domestic and international text and data with first 250 MB at 4G speeds plus $10 international call credit.
- The $49 plan – unlimited talk, domestic and international text and data with first 1GB at 4G speeds plus $20 international call credit.
Lycamobile’s Pay As You Go rates remain the same: 2¢ per minute, 4¢ per text, 6¢ per MB, international texting 12¢ per text. The minimum refill is $10 and balance does not expire if customers make a call or send a text at least every 120 days.
Lycamobile has also ended unlimited international calling promotion that allowed customers to call for free first 10 dialed numbers to 50 countries in $39 plan and to 65 countries in the $49 unlimited plan. Also, both plans had a $10 credit for calling numbers in 150 additional countries, which is not available any more.
According to Prepaid Phone News reader who wasn’t able to renew its plan at the old promotional rate, it seems that promotional plans are not grandfathered meaning that customers who were on these plans cannot keep it now that promotion has ended.
