Page Plus Cellular is perhaps the most popular MVNO on Verizon, and they offer no contract cell phone plans starting at $12. Recently they've made some adjustments to their upper echelon plans which include "The 55," for $55 and a $69.95 plan. Both plans offer unlimited talk, and text and now they include "unlimited" data. The 55 also includes 3 GB of 4G LTE and 200 international calling minutes while the $69.95 plan gets you 5 GB of LTE and 400 international calling minutes. Page Plus's LTE speeds however are greatly throttled to somewhere in the realm of 3-6 Mbps with most customers reporting speeds of 3-3.5 Mbps. I find such speeds to be plenty fast for most users as long as the network doesn't experience any slowdowns, you should have no trouble streaming Spotify, Pandora, or any other audio streaming service of choice. Netflix, Youtube and the likes should also work well. Where I do have a problem is with their new marketing ploy and claim of "unlimited" data. Page Plus Cellular does not tell you what they throttle your speeds to after your LTE data allotment is up. I have reached out to the company asking this very question, although based on what others have reported, I am not confident in getting a response. So for now, I assume as many forums and other sites are reporting, that you'll likely be throttled to 64 kbps, which I find unusable for anything but perhaps an email. Furthermore, I have to say shame on Page Plus if this is in fact true. They now have joined many other MVNOs and even their parent companies in the deceitful practice of claiming unlimited data but with fine print. At least with some other companies they are more transparent about what your speeds get throttled to. Hopefully Page Plus will be more transparent with this practice in the future. For now they seem content on claiming unlimited data, just for the sake of saying they offer it to try and grab a few more customers.
