AirVoice Wireless quietly updated a couple of its phone plans. The AT&T MVNO added more data to its $20 and $30 plans. The $20 plan now includes 1GB of data plus 1GB of promotional data. The $30 plan now has 4GB of data. Prior to the updates the $20 plan only included 100MB of data and the $30 plan 1GB. Both plans also include unlimited talk and text, and unlimited international text to up to 80 countries. The $30 plan also includes international calling.
AirVoice Updated Unlimited Plans
With the updated phone plans in place, AirVoice Wireless's monthly unlimited plans now look like this:
- $20/month - 1GB 4G LTE data + 1GB promotional data
- $30/month - 4GB data plus international calling to over 80 countries
- $50/month - 5GB data plus international calling to over 80 countries.
All plans listed include unlimited talk and text and unlimited international calling. Data is hard capped. Taxes and fees cost extra.
According to AirVoice Wireless's terms of service, the 1GB of promotional data included with the $20 plan is extra data at reduced speeds. AirVoice Wireless states that reduced speed data is data at 128Kbps.
The $30 and $50 plans also include fragmented data speeds. The first 2GB of data on the $30 plan is at 4G LTE data speeds before being reduced to slower speeds. The first 2.5GB of data on the $50 plan is at 4G LTE data speeds before being reduced.
AirVoice's short term 5 day plan for $5 remains unchanged. It still includes unlimited talk, text and international text with 25MB of data.
The MVNO's pay as you go plans also remain unchanged. Rates are effectively 10¢/min/text/sms/mms. Data is billed at 6.7¢/MB.
AirVoice Wireless added more data to select plans, and that's great. What's not so great is that they are not exactly upfront about what each plan comes with. In fact it's a little bit deceiving.
AirVoice Wireless states that the $30 plan includes 4GB of data, but they don't clearly mention that only half of that is at 4G LTE data speeds. You need to read their terms of service to be aware of that. Similarly, the MVNO does not even say what the 1GB of promotional data included with the $20 plan is for. You need to read their terms of service to find out more about that as well. AirVoice Wireless needs to be more upfront about this.
At this point I'm not sure why the $50 plan with 5GB of data is still in existence. I would have to imagine that it gets updated soon. It's not competitively priced in the marketplace, plus the pricing doesn't even make sense compared to their own $30 plan.
