Reach Mobile has discontinued one of its wireless plans. The Gigs That Give charitable provider has dropped its $20 service plan. The company informed BestMVNO that this plan was a limited-time promotional offering. Reach Mobile's $20 plan offered subscribers unlimited talk, text, and data with the first 1GB of data each month at 4G LTE data speeds before throttling. It provided customers with service on their choice of either the AT&T or Verizon network.
Another change made at Reach Mobile is that they've opted to stop new activations on the AT&T network. All Reach Mobile plans (described down below) had offered service on both the AT&T and Verizon networks. This is at least the second time that Reach Mobile has had to stop activations on the AT&T network for unspecified reasons. Activations on the network may resume again much further on down the road. Current customers on an AT&T based plan will be allowed to keep their plan.
Reach Mobile's Remaining Phone Plans Highlighted
With the discontinuation of Reach Mobile's $20 phone plan, the remaining offerings are as follows:
- $35/month - 3GB 4G LTE Data
- $45/month - 5GB 4G LTE Data
- $60/month - 10GB 4G LTE Data
- $75/month - 20GB 4G LTE Data
All plans include unlimited talk, text, and data with the specified amount of data at 4G LTE data speeds before throttling to 2G data speeds. Mobile hotspot is available with all plans at no extra charge. Taxes and fees cost extra.
Customers who elect to signup for a plan priced between $35 and $60 can add additional lines to their accounts at a cost of $20/month. Data between lines is shareable, and all subscribers share the amount of data that is included with line 1. Subscribers on the $75 plan can add additional lines to their plan for $70/month and each subscriber gets their own separate data allotment.
Reach Mobile offers what it calls "Best Fit Flexible Plans." Customers on plans priced $35 to $60 only ever have to pay for the amount of data that best fits their consumption. So for instance, if a customer subscribes to the $45 plan with 5GB of high-speed data but only uses 2GB during a billing cycle, they'll only have to pay $35 for their plan in that month.
The company's Gigs That Giv program, which is a core feature of Reach Mobile, is used to donate data to nonprofit organizations to help get people online who otherwise could not afford to get connected. Reach Mobile donates data to the nonprofits based on how much data its customers consume. Every time a Reach Mobile subscriber purchases a plan with data, Reach Mobile donates the value of 10% of the plan's data to the nonprofits. If a subscriber has a plan with 5GB of data, Reach Mobile will donate 500MB of data.
