Straight Talk to introduce plans for tablets and mobile hotspots, car connection and remote alert service
Straight Talk’s intention to introduce new Mobile Broadband Service plans, Verizon –based, has been revealed in November last year, 2013, for the first time. Now, a Howard Forums user has discovered new Straight Talk plans for tablets, which are the same as the mobile hotspot’s, as well as service plans and devices for car connection and home remote alert service. According to the website, tablet and hotspot service is GSM-based, AT&T and T-Mobile compatible.
None of these upcoming Straight Talk’s services are available yet but plans for each service are listed on the carrier’s website.
Straight Talk plans for tablets and mobile hotspots that can access LTE include five options:
- A $15 plan with 1GB of data per 30 days
- A $25 plan with 2GB of data per 30 days (initially was $20)
- A $40 plan with 4GB of data per 60 days
- A $50 plan with 5GB of data per 60 days
- A $75 plan with 7GB of data per 60 days
Also, Straight Talk will eventually offer the car connection and remote alert service. The car connection device Audiovox, that’s included on the Straight Talk website, allows monitoring the driver by tracking car’s location or restricting driver’s phone from calling or texting while driving. The service is compatible with iPhone, Android and BlackBerry and will be available for $10 and 30 days of service and $100 for 365 days.
The remote alert device allows monitoring the user’s house. In case a motion is detected, it sends a text message or makes a phone call to up to six different pre-assigned numbers. The plans for this service are $10 for 30 days and $100 for a year.
