H2O Wireless launched a new promotion today valid though 3/31/2017 for those who port in a new line of service and for existing customers who use auto recharge. The new promotion is that eligible plans will come with a significant amount of bonus data.
Eligible plans include all of H2O Wireless's Monthly Unlimited Plans and they are as follows:
Monthly Unlimited Plans With Bonus Data
All plans include unlimited talk, text, international talk, and international text as well as throttled 2G data once the plans high speed data is used up.
- $30/month ($27 autopay) - 3 GB of high speed data (previously 1 GB)
- $40/month ($36 autopay) - 8 GB of high speed data (previously 3 GB)
- $50/month ($45 autopay) - 10 GB of high speed data (previously 5 GB)
- $60/month ($54 autopay) - 12 GB of high speed data (previously 6 GB)
There is no word as to whether or not the extra data will be permanent for those customers who sign up for one of these plans during the promotional time period. I have reached out to H2O Wireless for clarification but have not yet received a response at the time of publication.
(Update: 12/08/2016 - H2O has informed me that the plans will revert back to their regular data amounts after the promotional period ends.)
H2O Wireless is an AT&T MVNO which means it competes in the marketplace with Cricket Wireless among others. With the promotion, H2O Wireless's plans currently provide a better value than nearly every other ATT MVNO plan.
Cricket Wireless for instance is charging $30 for a plan that includes just 1 GB of data, and $40 for a plan with 2.5 GB of data and neither plan includes international talk or text. With this promotion, switching to H2O will offer you up to 3x more data than the competition does.
Joe is the founder of BestMVNO.com. He started BestMVNO in 2013, because like many of you, he was unhappy with the high price he was paying his wireless provider for cell phone service. After researching how to cut costs on his phone bill, he came across the terms 'MVNO' and 'prepaid wireless', and learned there was a way he could keep using his favorite network without having to pay a premium price for it. Since then, through BestMVNO.com, Joe has been sharing his research about MVNOs and prepaid wireless so that others can learn how to save money on their own phone bills. Contact JP
