Weekly Plan Spotlight: Best friends and family plans


Sharing’s caring. In this week’s plan spotlight we’ve picked out some multi-line plans for your delectation. We’ve rounded up 3 providers who all offer 4 lines of unlimited data for $100/month. Whether you’re buying for friends, family, or your barbershop quartet, it’s $100 total. All taxes, surcharges and fees are included.

Sound good? We’ll compare them, you pick your fave.

Cricket

On Cricket’s Unlimited 2 Plan you get unlimited data on AT&T’s expansive network. Here’s a snapshot of the plan:

  • maximum data speed is 3Mbps
  • Unlimited talk, text & data. After using 22GB of data, speeds may slow temporarily during times of high network congestion.
  • Unlimited international text from US to 180+ countries.
  • Video streaming in Standard Definition, 480p+.
  • 10GB of mobile hotspot (tethering) is available for an additional $10/month.


So a few caveats there, but at $100 for 4 lines it’s certainly worth a look. Hit the button or fiddle with the widget if you’re already smitten.

Boost Mobile

Not to be outdone, Boost aren’t offering you 4 lines for your $100, they’re offering you 5. Yep, no extra cost and you get 5 lines of unlimited data on the Sprint network. Here’s the deets:

Metro PCS wants to throw you a little extra sugar. As well as 4 lines of unlimited calls, text and data on T-Mobile’s network, they’re teasing you with an Amazon Prime subscription, absolutely gratis.
