UPDATED 5/13/2016: See Total Wireless plans now feature 4G LTE data.

May 30, 2015

Total Wireless, an MVNO that operates on Verizon's network has been rumored for a few days to be getting LTE data speeds.  Today, at least one reader at BestMVNO.com reports that they now have 4G showing with the prepaid wireless provider (although this maybe a bit odd without a SIM card. The reader has since rescinded their statement citing confusion between Total Wireless and BYO Wireless) .  Confirmation of the service is not yet showing on either Total Wireless's website or Walmart's website, although that may happen in the next day couple of days given the rumors and the fact that Verizon must allow its MVNOs to have LTE access for them to survive and be competitive in the marketplace.  Currently Total Wireless is the only Verizon based Tracfone brand to not offer LTE access.

Total Wireless offers several base plans as well as data add on cards (3 GB with data carryover for $10) to expand on those plans.  The base plans are as follows:

If and when LTE becomes available (now available as of 5/13/2016), the $35 plan would be one of the best and cheapest plans on the market when you consider the amount of LTE data you would get per network coverage area.  With autopay you can save even more as the plan price becomes $33.25.  A bit to note though is that Verizon MVNOs are limited to about 5 Mbps download speeds and 2 Mbps up.

I am the department manager of the wireless department for a Walmart in Pennsylvania, our tracfone (owns straight talk tf and tw) representative Stated that TW will be offering 4glte this may. They also will be unveiling a new data limit for the $35 plan, 5GB of 4glte. In the past the rep was always speaking truth so it could be very possible that they will be offer 4glte soon.

SO I just bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 that when I entered the S/N on the TW site, it came up as compatible. Well, after trying to activate it, it says it won’t work cause it’s 4G LTE. Grrrr Any idea if TW will become 4G so I can use this phone I just spent $100 on?

Geez! People are highly skeptical and quick to judge!!! These writers are scooping news for you before it hits & you repay them with doubt & skepticism – honestly people. He’s I the position he’s in for a good reason. Throwing my esteemed MVNO guru a bone since you all dropped the hammer on him….keep watching Total Wireless because good things are in the pipeline. Companies do roll things out prior to the actual public release to ensure functionality and DOESNT TELL ALL EMPLOYEES. Information is on a need to know basis & not everyone needs to know. By the… Read more »

I recieved this from them this morning: Thank you for your interest in Total Wireless. We are responding to your recent inquiry. As of this moment, we are still currently offering 3G service. We are continually working on improving and expanding our products and services. However, Our Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) Program allows you to use your CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) or non-SIM card phones, tablets, and mobile hotspot devices to Total Wireless. You need to purchase a Network Access Code (NAC) along with the Total Wireless Service Card. The Network Access Code will serve as a key… Read more »

Total Wireless Yesterday- 05/29 posted a 30 second promo about Shared Plans with absolutely no mention of 4G level of service . Their terms and conditions still state no 4G/4G LTE devices supported.

Yes, the article mentions that it does not show LTE on the Total Wireless website. I will make a few small changes to the article to reflect better that it is still questionable. Google and Walmart do however show a SIM card activation kit buried/hidden within their system (see attached photo). There are several prepaid companies said to be getting LTE access via Verizon on or about June 1st. Currently Total Wireless is the only Tracfone brand that does not include LTE via Verizon, so I anticipate a change to becoming very soon. I suppose it’s also possible the brand… Read more »

“We have two service platforms, CDMA (Verizon PrePaid Coverage Area) which offers 3G service and GSM (TMobile PrePaid Coverage Area) which offers up to 4G service. The 4G service does depend on the service availability in the area where you live and not all areas offer 4G.”

So your claim, which appears to have been scrubbed, that you were able to activate 4G LTE on Total Wireless was bogus?

I do not beleive this to be true. Just got off phone with customer service rep. Asked him to activate a 4G LTE device. He stated NO 4G LTE devices can be activated. There are NO SIMS to Purchase. Nothing.
