U.S. Cellular Is Now Offering New Unlimited Plan
Thanks to the competition, more and more carriers are now offering plans with unlimited text and data. According to Digital Trends, February 2017 will be remembered for almost all smartphone users because of the revival of the unlimited data plan. Today, U.S. Cellular will join the fun with the unlimited plan of its own. This new text and data plan eliminates phone upgrade fees, any activation fees, monthly device connection charges as well as data overage fees.
A straightforward wireless plan is also offered that reduces user's confusion of hidden fees with the introduction of US Cellular's Total Plans with No Hidden Fees. The reconstructed plan starts at $40 per month with for 2GB of high-speed data, while the $50 plan hits the data bucket to 6GB. The Unlimited Total Plan includes an unlimited data for $60 a month, but an Unlimited Plus option lies alongside it for an additional $20 more per month.
The Unlimited Total Plan can provide you with “high definition” video resolution. Your mobile is also covered at 480p if you opt for this unlimited plan. However, the Unlimited Plus Total Plan covers videos at 720p, whereas the 2GB and 6GB plans both allow video streams at its “full network speed.” The company reportedly suggests that the Unlimited Total Plan customers will have their data suppressed to 2G speeds once they reach 22GB for a month.
U.S. Cellular’s unlimited offering includes hot-spot capability, video streaming and free calling to other countries such as Mexico and Canada. These plans are available to all existing and new customers, and those purchasing a new handset can take advantage of the monthly payment option. The company confirmed that there are no data overage fees, so all customers need to pay the same amount every month.
