TracFone’s Simple Mobile has reduced the price of its 10 GB Unlimited Nationwide plan from $60 to $55 per month. The plan includes unlimited domestic voice minutes and picture messaging, unlimited international and domestic text messaging and unlimited data. The first 10 GB of data per month is delivered at high speeds, including LTE where available. After 10 GB data speeds are throttled to 64 Kbps.
The price of Simple’s 10 GB Unlimited International plan was also reduced by $5, from $70 to $65 per month. It includes all the features of the 10 GB Unlimited Nationwide plan plus unlimited calls to up to 10 unique numbers in 51 countries (full list), including mobile phones in India, Hong Kong and China. The Simple Mobile website hasn’t been updated with the new pricing for the 10 GB international plan yet, but Simple Mobile dealers have been notified that the new lower price is effective immediately.
Simple Mobile operates as a T-Mobile MVNO using the T-Mobile native network only with no roaming. The price cuts are probably intended to make Simple’s 10 GB plans more competitive with T-Mobile owned MetroPCS’ $60 ($70 with international calling add-on) plan which includes unlimited unthrottled data, off network voice and text roaming and WiFi calling, all which Simple Mobile lacks. There are no changes to Simple Mobile’s other plans.
