Personally, I like the idea. Appears a slick way of getting customers away from the 5/$100.

I haven't been following the other prepaid offers closely, but seems like metro and cricket are having an unlimited battle. We benefit from savings money but at the sacrifice of slower speeds with the unlimited 2 promo.

As a $5/100 5gb group plan coordinator, I will say that the 5/$125 unlimited 2 is tempting. But most of my lines use less than 1gb a month so it would only benefit 1 or 2 lines. The Mexico/Canada usage would be a plus if I actually even went anywhere.

I think in the future everything will be unlimited and it will all be speed based.

I think the better question is Why is cricket pushing highly throttled unlimited?
But still very usable for many apparently.

It gives them a solid income stream that will stay put and not mess up the network by using super high speeds.
They will and can make the capacity they have work for these folks.

What are you talking about,? Everybody is going unlimited high speed, if anything Cricket is late.

Well the answer is simple, to drive revenue. Same reason every other carrier pushes unlimited. Even if someone will only use 3gb of data a month, they will pay more for an unlimited plan. Why? Because it sounds better to them, they will use the "what if" mentality. What if I need it? It works out great for the carriers also, the majority of users don't use anywhere near enough data to justify using an unlimited plan, so the carriers have people paying for unlimited plans and using 5-10 gb of data a month. Why wouldn't you push that as a carrier.
