Mobile broadband Internet On The Go offers less data for the same cost
Walmart exclusive mobile broadband Internet on the Go that operates on Sprint network has made some negative changes to its plans. For the second time, Internet On The Go has lowered the amount of data offered on its Forever Data plans (used to be called Use Whenever plans) while its costs have remained the same. The $10 plan now includes 300 MB of data instead of previous 500 MB. The $25 plans offers 1 GB of data instead of 1.5 GB and the $45 plan includes 2.5 GB of data instead of 3 GB.
On these plans data never expire as long as user keeps account active. To keep the service active, they need to use at least 1 MB of data every 60 days. This is also a change since previously users were able to use data at least ones a year in order to keep their accounts active.
After changes, prepaid plans of the Internet On The Go include:
- $10 – 300 MB of 3G data (was 500 MB)
- $25 – 1 GB of 3G data (was 1.5 GB)
- $45 – 2 GB of 3G data (was 3 GB)
New lower data allotments are included on the Internet On The Go’s website but haven’t been reflected yet on every related page. Also, at Walmart.com, the plans still include the old, higher data allotments as well as the old Use Whenever name.
In order to use the service, customers need to purchase an Internet On The Go mobile hotspot that can be purchased for $79.88 at Walmart.
