Tracfone recently released a new line of unlimited prepaid phone plans under the name Straight Talk Wireless. This was a very aggressive move by the prepaid wireless provider and one that has garnered quite a bit of media attention. The first plan costs includes Unlimited talk, text, and web. It’s a very competitive deal and one that undercuts a similar deal from Boost Mobile by five dollars.
Tracfone is a very large pay as you go service provider with 12 million subscribers in the United States. The release of these very affordable plans will only gain a larger market share for the company. This new Tracfone service may make the company even more popular with people looking for additional Smartphone Options.
Straight Talk Prepaid Unlimited Plan Details
For the $45 price point, customers receive unlimited talk time and unlimited text messaging, along with 30 MB of data usage. Heavy cell phone talkers and text messagers would do well to look into this plan. For the $30 price, subscribers receive 1,000 minutes and 1,000 text messages. This is a very attractive plan. 1,000 minutes of talk time is quite a bit.
The competitors with Tracfone are Boost Mobile and MetroPCS, which both have plans attractive to new subscribers. Tracfone may have an advantage because it has a reputation as a very affordable, value company and often offers discounts on phone handsets, free minutes, and Tracfone promo codes. If you are a subscriber to Tracfone, you should be taking advantage of the Tracfone promotional codes that will provide you with free minutes in addition to the ones you purchase.
