Venn Mobile offers just one phone plan and it uses Sprint's towers to provide service. The plan is regularly priced at $30/month and includes unlimited 4G LTE data with 50GB of mobile hotspot. For a limited time the plan is being offered at a discount. In honor of earth day, new customers can get it for just $17/month for their first 6-months of service when they apply code EARTH13 at checkout. Taxes cost extra.
Things You Should Know
This offer is only available to new customers who port-in from a provider that isn't already on the Sprint network. So if you want the deal, you'll have to port from AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, or one of their associated MVNOs. In fact, Venn Mobile's plan even at its regular rate is unavailable to those porting in with a Sprint based number.
Like all unlimited plan providers on the market, there is a data prioritization policy in place. During times of heavy network congestion, subscribers that use more than approximately 50GB of data in a month may have their data speeds temporarily slowed until the congestion gets relieved.
All features that come with the plan include the following:
- Unlimited Talk
- Unlimited Text
- 50GB mobile hotspot at high-speed then unlimited at 3G data speeds
- 1080p video streaming
- Free domestic roaming that includes 100MB of roaming data and unlimited calling and texting
- Wi-Fi calling
- Free calls to and from Mexico and Canada
- 10GB LTE data roaming while in Mexico or Canada
- No contracts
Venn Mobile does not specify how fast their 3G data speeds are. I reached out to a company representative for clarification and will update the post if I receive a response.
This certainly looks like a great deal on paper, although some customers may be apprehensive about it given the recent fiasco with Black Wireless and Mango Mobile who offered somewhat similar plans albeit on the T-Mobile network. Black Wireless and Mango Mobile, however, ended up having to cancel their plans and refund their customers likely for selling a plan they didn't have proper approval from T-Mobile to sell. I don't think Venn Mobile subscribers will suffer the same fate as there isn't a previous track record of something like this happening with Sprint based MVNOs as there is with T-Mobile based MVNOs.
