Cricket Wireless, an AT&T-owned prepaid brand, has made some changes to its 4G LTE hotspot data add-on. Instead of the original 8GB hotspot data that it offered, the add-on now includes 10GB of high-speed data.
The best thing about this new change is that the price of the add-on remains at $ 10 per month.
This LTE hotspot data add-on can be purchased for use with any of Cricket Wireless’ hotspot compatible plans. Right now, the prepaid brand offers two options under this and they come in this pricing structure:
- $ 55 per month – comes with unlimited talk, text and 3Mbps data (video streaming is 1.5Mbps)
- $ 60 per month – comes with unlimited talk, text, and 8Mbps data
These two plans already come with unlimited texting to 38 countries, as well as free text, talk and data roaming while traveling in Canada or Mexico. Data deprioritization occurs when over 22GB of data has been consumed before the billing cycle is over. The add-on hotspot data decreases its speed to 2G once the 10GB high speed allotment has been consumed.
It’s important to remember that mobile hotspot is not available on all devices. Only select phones include it.
