New Mobile Share Advantage plans available Aug. 21 w/ NO data overages (unlimited data at 128 kbps)
New Mobile Share Advantage plans are available August 21, 2016.
No automatic data overage charges, data drops to 128 kbps and I guess it's unlimited (but I'm thinking they are avoiding that term intentionally).
Line charges look like they are $20 a line for all plans.
- So some lower data plans look more expensive, but you save $5 a line.
- Higher data plans look cheaper, but you pay $5 more a line.
- Looks like (comparing old to new) you'll pay more if you have 3 or more lines (the extra $5 add up), 2 lines is iffy what way it goes.
I'm glad that they got rid of the 300MB plan (with the $20 overages that only brought 300MB more), now for $5 more you get a 1GB plan (it's $10 more but the line fee is $5 less).
But with cheaper plans and higher line fees, people will lose out a little with their FAN discounts.
These are new announced plans, I'm comparing them to current (Aug. 17, 2016) published plans (not retention plans).
Still no Canada roaming built in, that's a little bit of a surprise to me...
Update: It looks like you can't buy additional data overage packs for these plans, it looks like you must pick the correct size or it just slows down (noit excited about that).
