Like all Ultra Mobile phone plans, it's available for purchase by the month, for 3-months, 6-months or 12 months in advance. Pricing options for the plan are as follows with the average monthly cost highlighted in bold:

The plan also comes with WiFi calling and texting, unlimited talk to over 80 countries, unlimited global text messaging, a monthly $10 international calling credit to call countries not included in the 80+ that are free and a one time $10 international roaming credit.
Ultra Mobile offers one other plan that it calls "Unlimited." It differs from the Unlimited+ plan in that it only includes 40GB of high-speed data before throttling to 2G data speeds and 10GB of mobile hotspot. The plan also only includes a one time $5 international roaming credit and a monthly $5 international calling credit. Pricing for the plan averages out to be $10/month cheaper than Unlimited+ across all pricing options. Both the Unlimited and Unlimited+ plans offer autopay discounts. Both plans limit video streaming to a resolution of 480p. 2G throttled data speeds top out at a maximum of 128Kbps.
Ultra Mobile is a sister brand to Mint Mobile. Both brands focus on multi-month plan offerings with Ultra Mobile's point of differentiation being that it focuses on subscribers international calling needs. Mint Mobile focuses more on the cheap data market.
