H2O Wireless is offering new customers one free month of service with or without a ported number. Customers must activate on the MVNO's $20 plan which for a limited time will include 1GB of LTE data or their $30 plan which for a limited time will include 6GB of LTE data. The promotional offer was first spotted by Wave7 Research.
Offer Fine Print
The offer launched on February 1, 2019 and is scheduled to last until March 31, 2019. (Update 4/2/19 the double data promo will now be availble at least until 4/30/19. Update 5/2/2019, the promo shows as still being available on the H2O Wireless website, but the promo end date and terms have not been updated.).
Those who elect to signup for H2O Wireless's $20 plan will receive 1GB of LTE data for up to 3 months. The plan normally only includes 500 MB of LTE data.
In order to get the bonus data after the free month of service, customers must recharge their plan before the free month expires and before plan expiration the following month. The recharges must occur by July 31, 2019 (Update 4/2/19, recharges must occur by 8/31/19). If automatic payments are enabled, the requirements should automatically be taken care of. Additionally, customers who enable auto-pay will get 15% off the price of their plan for their first 3 months of paid service. That means the $20 plan drops down to just $17/month. After 3 months of paid service, the auto-pay discount goes to its regular rate of 10% off. Data is hard capped on this plan.
Besides the 1GB of LTE data, the $20 plan also includes unlimited talk, text and international talk and text. International calling is available to over 50 countries. The plan also comes with a $10 international calling credit so you can call countries that are not available to call for free.
Those who elect to signup for H2O Wireless's $30 plan will receive 6GB of LTE data for up to 3 months. In order to get 6GB LTE data for the first 3 months, subscribers will need to recharge their plan twice by March 31, 2019 (Update 4/2/19, recharges must occur by 8/31/19). The plan normally comes with 3GB of LTE data and that is the amount of data customers will receive after their promotional allotment runs out. This plan comes with all the same calling and international calling features that the $20 plan offers.
Both plans have a restriction on download speeds. Download speeds are limited to a maximum of 8Mbps for LTE devices, and 4Mbps for HSPA+ devices. Video streaming is limited to a maximum resolution of 480p.
