Straight Talk Wireless, the MVNO sold in Walmart and operating on various networks, has announced that it is raising the ceiling on its unlimited talk, text, and data plans to allow for more 4G usage. For the price of $45, customers will be able to talk and text as much as they want within the United States. They will also be able to use 4G LTE speeds where available until they reach 3GB within a 30-day billing period. Once someone surpasses 3 GB of use, the phone will only be able to use 3G data until the billing period ends.
The previous 2.5 GB high-speed data allotment has been lifted to give customers an extra 500 MB of high-speed data every month, which can mean anything from watching a few more YouTube videos to being able to browse the web at high speeds for a a few more hours. Straight Talk also announced that its $30 "All You Need" plan has been changed to include unlimited text, 1,500 voice minutes, and 100MB of data.
