Rok Mobile Changes Verizon Based Plans, $50 Plan Now Includes Unlimited LTE
MVNO Rok Mobile that operates on Sprint, Verizon and AT&T networks has ones again altered its prepaid monthly plan offerings. This time, Rok Mobile changes Verizon based plans, making some positive and some negative changes, unfortunately.
The most competitive change is the $50 unlimited plan getting unlimited 4G LTE data instead of unlimited data with 8 GB at 4G LTE. However, as with most carriers lately, unlimited high speed data plan is limited in few ways. First, LTE is limited to 5Mbps just as it is with other Verizon MVNOs except those who are owned by TracFone. Carrier also reduces the speed of LTE after 20 GB of data usage and optimizes video streaming at DVD quality (480p).
While the $50 plan has improved, the $20 has downgraded. What used to be $20/1GB high speed data plan now is $20/500 MB data plan. The $30 option that was offering 3 GB at high speed now costs $35 and includes 4 GB of high speed data per month. Also, the $40 plan now includes 8 GB of high speed data instead of previous 5 GB.
The carrier is also offering a $49 Rok Super Plan on Verizon network that matches Super Plans on Sprint and AT&T coverage. The $49 plans come with unlimited talk, text and data with first 3.5 GB at LTE, international calling and ROK Life Premium features.
