Verizon MVNO Selectel increases data, adds LTE soon, so is PagePlus Cellular
Ever since Verizon has allowed LTE to its prepaid customers, it’s been expected that Verizon MVNOs gain access to it as well, eventually. For now, Verizon MVNOs Selectel Wireless and PagePlus Cellular are unofficially announcing it.
Selectel‘s dealers have been notified yesterday about getting access to LTE data but not about when exactly that might be. For now all they are saying is that it’s coming “soon”. Dealers are also informed that the $30 monthly plan will include more data starting today, August 15. The $30 plan that offered 1300 voice minutes, 3000 texts and 300MB of data will now have 500MB of data. Also, the number of texts in the $75 plan will be increased. Starting today, the $75 yearly plan will have 2000 text instead of 1500 in addition to 2000 voice minutes per year.
Regarding PagePlus Cellular getting LTE, it’s been previously indicated on Kitty Forums that that might happen between the “late August” and the next holiday season. However, yesterday PagePlus Marketing Manager Denny Scher confirmed it on HowardForums: “Yes, 4G LTE is coming to Page Plus. I won’t announce a date at this time, but it’s not too far off.”
Also, now that Verizon is allowing LTE to prepaid customers who now can activate any clean ESN Verizon handset with its prepaid Allset plans, they have and will forbid activating flashed phones on their MVNOs from other CDMA carriers as Selectel and Page Plus that were doing in on a regular basis. Selectel is already banned while Page Plus was rumored to be starting August 1 but nothing happened up to this day. In fact, on Kitty Wireless Forums, it’s posted that the ban might be postponed until the end of the year, December 31, 2014.
