Get ready to pay more for Mint Mobile's upgraded data plans
With 2018 firmly in the rear-view mirror, prepaid carrier Mint Mobile will ring in the new year with more data for all of its plans. However, Android Central noted that the upgrades also come with higher prices.
First, the good: starting January 29, Mint Mobile will increase the amount of data for each plan. That means the 2GB plan goes to 3GB, the 5GB plan goes to 8GB, and the 10GB plan goes to 12GB. That is great news for those that found Mint Mobile’s plans a bit lacking in the gig department.
Unfortunately, a boost in pricing accompanies the boost in data.
If you opt for a three-month plan, the 3GB, 5GB, and 12GB plans will cost $75, $105, and $135, respectively. The three-month plans previously maxed out at $75 for 12GB.
The price hikes aren’t as drastic for the six-month plans. The plans will start at $120 for 3GB and go up to $210 for 12GB. The six-month plans previously started at $108 and maxed out at $180.
Back to the good news, the 12-month plans will retain the same pricing as before. That means $180 for 3GB, $240 for 8GB, and $300 for 12GB.
Even better, those who currently have Mint Mobile service will keep the older prices and get the boosted data allowances. That also applies to anyone who signs up before January 29.
