Spectrum Mobile updated its unlimited plans today. The base unlimited plan priced at $29.99/mo now includes 30GB of high-speed data each month, up from 20GB. Spectrum's $39.99/mo Unlimited Plus plan got an even bigger data jump. The full-speed data allotment has been increased to 50GB/mo up from 30GB. Both plans include priority data, however, after the high-speed allotments have been reached data becomes de-prioritized and data speeds are throttled to 1Mbps download and 512Kbps upload.
New customers will immediately get the new data allotments. Spectrum Mobile's service broadband disclosures state that customers that had an unlimited plan prior to September 8, will have to wait up to 60 days to get the increased data allotments.
Aside from the data allotment increases, there appear to be a few other changes that have been made to the plans. The $39.99/mo Unlimited Plus plan got a mobile hotspot allowance increase too. It now includes up to 10GB of full-speed hotspot data. The previous allotment was 5GB. After the hotspot allowance is surpassed in a monthly cycle, hotspot data speeds are limited to a maximum of 600Kbps. The plan has also been improved by adding 5GB of roaming data to use while traveling in either Mexico or Canada. After 5GB, data speeds are reduced to a maximum of 256Kbps. The base unlimited plan does not include data usage in Mexico or Canada, and the hotspot allowance is still 5GB at full speed.
All other features appear to be unchanged. Customers can still take advantage of Spectrum's Internet plus Phone service bundle. The bundle, "Spectrum One," includes one year of free service on the $29.99 unlimited phone plan plus 300Mbps internet for a total bundle price of $49.99/mo for 12 months with autopay. Spectrum Mobile's phone plans include all taxes and fees.
