Selectel Increases Data on the $40, $50 and $70 Plans
Verizon MVNO Selectel Wireless has improved some of its plans recently by increasing the high speed data allotments. Selectel increases data on the $40 plan to 4 GB of data instead of previous 3 GB. The $50 plan receives 2 GB of additional data, providing 7GB instead of 5GB. And the last but not the least, the $70 plan now comes with 10 GB of data instead of previous 7 GB. The change is effective since December 9, 2017.
Selectel Prepaid Plans
Now that carrier adds more data to the three top priced plans, Selectel offers following prepaid monthly options:
- $15 plan, 3G phones only – 300 voice minutes, unlimited text, 50 MB of data
- $20 plan, 4G phones only – 500 voice minutes, unlimited text, 50 MB Data
- $30 plan, 3G, 4G phones –unlimited talk, text and data with 1 GB at high speed
- $40 plan, 3G, 4G phones – unlimited talk, text and data with 4 GB at high speed (was 3 GB)
- $50 plan, 3G, 4G phones – unlimited talk, text and data with 7 GB at high speed (was 5 GB)
- $70 plan, 3G, 4G phones – unlimited talk, text and data with 10 GB at high speed (was 7 GB)
After high speed data allotment, Selectel throttles data speeds to approximately 128 Kbps until the next billing cycle.
Comparing To Other Prepaid Options
Even though every improvement is good for customers, especially adding more data without a cost increase, still, there are better options on the market currently. For those who need Verizon coverage in order to stay connected, Verizon MVNO TracFone-owned Page Plus Cellular offers unlimited 4G LTE data for $69.95 per month. Additionally, this plan includes unlimited talk, text, unlimited international texting and a $10 international calling credit. Also TracFone’s, Straight Talk provides ‘unlimited’ 4G LTE data for $55.
Unlimited high speed data for even less money per month is not a rarity these days. Most providers, however, optimize video streaming but some offer un-throttled high speed data as T-Mobile’s MetroPCS, for example, for as low as $60 per month.
