US Cellular intros unlimited data plan
After most other large carriers in the US added at least one unlimited data plan to their portfolios, US Cellular finally introduces its own such deals. Available for both new and existing customers, the new Total Plans with No Hidden Fees come without activation fees, monthly connection charges, phone update or data overage fees.
According to US Cellular's vice president of brand management Grant Leech, "We want to be forthright with customers by knocking out hidden fees once and for all and showing wireless users exactly what they are paying for. Our new plans allow families and small businesses to customize their plans for each individual's needs, from 2GB of data to unlimited, all with simplified pricing and discounts."
The new plans come with unlimited talk and text, with three data plans on top - 2 GB, 6 GB, or unlimited data. Sadly, it looks like the "unlimited data" is, in fact, limited. The official press release states that, after streaming "at standard definition speeds" 22 GB of data, the unlimited data plans automatically slow down to 2G speeds.
For a single line, the unlimited data plan has a price tag of $60 USD, but it can go down to $40 USD when the customer pays for at least four phone lines.
