The World Needs More Straight Talk, Not So-Called “Value Plans”

Many major carriers have recently shifted their long standing “contract” business models to start allowing customers to switch to cheaper plans if they buy or bring their own phone. The new plans are marketed as “value plans” and feature several “no-contract” plan options.

Here’s why Straight Talk’s no-contract $45 unlimited plan is better:

The Straight Talk plan offers Unlimited everything, including high-speed data of up to 2.5GB. These new “value plans” only offer 300 MB of data. As smart phones users consume increasing amounts of data, most consumers will likely find the 300MB of data to be lacking. (With 300MB, you can watch one music video per day.)

In addition to a less competitive data plan at $45, the “value plan” has additional charges in the fine print such as one time activation fees, automatic overage charges for data uses exceeding monthly allowance, and installment charges in certain cases.

Straight Talk also offers nationwide coverage on America’s best and most dependable networks, including 4G LTE on 4G LTE-compatible GSM phones. This means our network coverage is on par with the best options in the marketplace.

We think if you compare our $45 Unlimited Plan vs. their $45 “Limited” plan you’ll agree: The World Needs More Straight Talk.
