Straight Talk now offers 5GB of high speed data on the $45 and $60 unlimited plans
Straight Talk has increased the amount of high speed data that it offers on the $45 unlimited and the $60 unlimited international plans. Straight Talk now offers 5GB of high speed data instead of 3GB without changing the cost of the plans. When high speed data allotment is reached, data speeds are throttled to 2G which is something around 64 Kbps in Straight Talk’s case. Majority of other prepaid carriers throttle their data to approximately 128 Kbps when high speed data is used up.
The carrier has been offering 3GB of high speed data since April 2014 on all of its monthly unlimited plans only to recently start offering 5GB of high speed data per month only to its Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) customers. Fortunately for all, that’s not the case anymore and now all Straight Talk unlimited plan users can enjoy increased high speed data.
On its website, Straight Talk warns customers that high speed data increase from 3GB to 5GB may not be reflected right away on packaging and airtime cards but that customers will receive confirmation that they can now use 5GB of high speed data per month on the $45 and the $60 unlimited plans.
After the change, Straight Talk unlimited service offers:
- $45 unlimited plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 5GB at high speeds
- $60 unlimited plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 5GB at high speeds, unlimited mobile to mobile calls to Mexico, unlimited calls to 15 unique international landline numbers per month in 37 countries and international calling to landline and mobile numbers in Canada, China and India.
Straight Talk is providing service on all four major networks, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile just like Expo Mobile has started doing recently. However, unlike Expo Mobile that has different plans for each network, Straight Talk is offering the same service plans for all four networks. Red Pocket used to be like Expo Mobile but it has stopped offering T-Mobile-based service recently.
