Comparing Lyca’s $35 Plan
The $35/6GB plan is a good offer given that AT&T’s Cricket, for example, offers 1GB for $30 and 4GB for $40 a month . AT&T Prepaid (former GoPhone) offers 1GB of data for $30 with autopay, or 6GB for $40 with autopay. Without autopay, at T-Mobile’s MetroPCS you can also get 6GB of data for $40 per month ($30 plan has 2GB). Even TracFone’s Total Wireless that operates on Verizon network has less data now with its $35 plan, 5 GB.
However, there are additional costs to Lycamobile plans. The carrier has added a 5% recovery fee to all airtime purchased directly from Lycamobile and to auto pay. To airtime purchased from dealers or online PIN sellers, Lycamobile adds a flat $1 per top up.
