Re: What's the Verizon plan called? What's interesting is that a friend warned me about Cricket. But I was seduced by the prospect of getting high speed internet for $40 a month, with no overages. So I signed up and ultimately came to regret that decision, as Cricket's network is woefully inadequate. For the speeds you get, I can see them charging maybe $20 or $30 per month. But their current price levels are just insane. They charge $55 a month for 5 GB of data. You can go on Verizon's site and order directly from them and get 5 GB for $50. It's actually cheaper to use Verizon, despite the fact that Cricket has a significantly worse network and, according to logic and reason, Cricket deserves to be priced cheaper. Of course, the big difference is that Verizon requires you to sign a contract, whereas Cricket allows you to pre-pay. As does Millenicom.
You asked about Millenicom's service plans. They actually have 5 plans at the moment:
3G/4G Hotspot: $80 a month and uses Verizon's 3G and 4G networks.
Advanced Plan (which is what I have): $60 a month for 20 GB but requires the $99 purchase of the modem. Uses Verizon's 3G network.
Unlimited Plan: $70 a month and it uses the Sprint's 3G network. They say "unlimited" but it has a 50 GB soft cap.
Bring your own device plan: Same as the unlimited plan. Uses Sprint 3G.
Standard plan: $60 a month for 5 GB. Uses Verizon 3G. Doesn't require purchase of the modem.
Hope this answered your question. Thanks for the comment!
