If are afraid of being stuck doing business with major carriers when looking for cellphone service, then you should know alternatives exist. One is called prepaid carriers and what’s great about them is they normally offer flexible plans, better pricing offers and pretty nice customer service. Like Cricket Wireless.

The carrier just announced a new rate plan which offers users 8GB of LTE data for $50/month. If you remember T-Mobile’s prepaid branch, MetroPCS also announced a similar offer not so long ago.

Buyer’s Guide: MVNOs

If you are already signed up with Cricket on a $50/month plan and want to upgrade to the 8GB option, the carrier says you should visit the nearest Cricket Wireless branded store or its official website via the MyCricket app or by contacting Customer Care.


For those who are interested in jumping onboard the Cricket bandwagon, note that you can take $5 off the bill by enabling AutoPay in your account. This means you’ll be getting 8GB data a month for only $45.

Cricket is offering text, talk and data access plans starting at $30/month depending on your budget. A more expensive data plan for $65/month (after Auto Pay) also exists which offers unlimited text, talk and high-speed data.

Are you tempted by Cricket’s latest offer?
