Straight Talk, one of the most popular prepaid wireless service options in the US, announced this week that they are bumping up their $45 from 3GB of high-speed data to 5GB per month should you BYOP (bring your own phone). Also, if you are already a part of Straight Talk, and you brought your own phone with you long ago, you will automatically be bumped up to the new 5GB limit.
At $45 and 5GB of high-speed LTE data on AT&T or T-Mobile’s networks, I’m not sure you’ll find a better prepaid deal. Cricket matches that $45 price and 5GB data cap, but doesn’t necessarily provide you with high speeds and instead caps its customers at 8Mbps down.
Here is the note that is going out to Straight Talk customers:
Rejoice! You now get more data.
As a BYOP customer, you will receive 5GB of high-speed data* on your next refill date. Now you can enjoy 5GB of high-speed data with your worry-free Auto-Refill service.
Do not worry, no further action is required on your part – just enjoy!
*5GB High Speed, 64KBPS thereafter
Thanks for bringing your phone to Straight Talk; where you get more of what you deserve today!
Straight Talk owners, how has service been lately?
