Things To Know

Cricket Wireless was founded in the year 1999 by Leap Wireless.  The company was initially an independent CDMA wireless network that had a partnership with Sprint.  Sprint’s network was used by Cricket to provide domestic roaming for its customers. In July of 2013 Cricket Wireless was purchased by AT&T for the sum of $1.2 billion, and consequently it is now an MVNO that operates on AT&T’s network. Unlike other AT&T MVNO’s, Cricket Wireless has its download speeds limited to 8 Mbps. There are no limits on upload speeds.

Really OLD price info on plans?

Cricket was forced to keep up with H2O which did the same prices a few months ago which is…
H2O state on their site $40 (10% off for autopay,) plan is 8GB and also other plans ie $50 plan is 12GB NOW (with the autopay 10% Off.!
So now Cricket is coping the prices and more will be forced down if they want to stay “in the race” into our customer-ships”
A little updating would get more provider signups?

Love this site………….. when it is updated or not!
