Total Wireless, one of my favorite mobile virtual network operators running over Verizon’s network, recently updates a few of its plans. Previously, the cheapest single-line plan was $25 per month and came with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and no data. Total Wireless has updated the plan so that it now includes 1GB of regular data as well as additional data at substantially reduced speeds for those who exceed 1GB of data use. At $25, the plan is a reasonably competitive option for those who don’t use a lot of data and want to benefit from Verizon’s extensive network.
Total Wireless also updated its single-line plan that costs $35 per month. The plan used to come with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 5GB of data. For new customers, the plan now includes 10GB of data for the first three months. I find this change a bit odd. Subscribers who will benefit from the extra 5GB of data are liable to be disappointed when their data allotment drops to 5GB after the first few months of service.
