Over the last several months LycaMobile has been running some pretty aggressive promos including deeply discounted phone plans and buy three months get three free deals. The latest offer from the T-Mobile MVNO is for a 30-day free trial.
The free trial offer gets you 30 days of service on Lycamobile's unlimited talk, text, and data plan with 12GB of data available at up to 5G data speeds before throttling to the equivalent of 2G data speeds. It also includes unlimited talk and text to over 75 countries. Plan data is prioritized below that of T-Mobile's postpaid customers. That means during times of network congestion, Lycamobile customers will temporarily experience slower data speeds compared to T-Mobile's customers.
After the first 30 days of service, the price of the plan increases to just $5/month for the customer's next two months. Autopay billing is required to get the discounted rate. The plan is regularly priced at $33/month.
Taxes and fees are extra with Lycamobile. They charge a 5% regulatory fee on top of their advertised rates. However, the free month offer is completely free, including the shipping of a SIM card. A credit card is still required at signup to get the trial.
This offer is only for new lines of service available exclusively at the lycamobile.com website. Porting your number in is not a requirement to get the deal. This promo is scheduled to be available at least until 3/31/23.
