    So yes that 5th line is $25 more. 5 lines for $125. The discount on the 3rd and 4th line is to match MetroPCS four lines unlimited plan.

    I’ll have to bite since we will need Mexico / Canada calling. Also I have $1.17 per month PureVPN which will bypass 1.5mb video restriction so my dtvnow should work.

    TFW you can't decide if 3mbit or 8mbit qualifies as high-speed internet. This race to the bottom is just sad when other competitors are removing limitations. Poor ol' Cricket is doing its best!

    That actually does bring up a legitimate question... Is AT&T experiencing significant network capacity issues? It seems that there's a lot of moves to reduce Cricket's usage of it... Maybe to free up limited space for "real" AT&T users?

    I'll report back tomorrow. It should though since video will stream at 3mb and not the 1.5mb.

    Botched up rollout of price increase and faulty communication and poor promos caught up with Cricket real fast ...it should be evident from the non-event black friday and cyber week deals .

    Meanwhile, https://www.fiercewireless.com/wirel...-to-deliver-q4

    Braxton Carter earlier this month said T-Mobile is making big subscriber gains in the fourth quarter. “So far in the fourth quarter our porting rations are up significantly,” Carter said. “We ended the third quarter at a porting ratio of 1.53; we’re now 1.73 on porting ratios to date this quarter. And our porting ratios are up against every carrier, and fairly significantly. That’s pretty good movement just being roughly halfway through the fourth quarter versus what we saw in the third quarter. So the thesis is playing out.”

    Cricket gonna have to do better than 3 MB/s unlimited. It is understood that they want to give 4 lines for $100 and not 5. But what are they truly offering for it? This is not cutting it.
    Sign up each new ported-in line (within the last 30 days) for Cricket Rewards with http://getm.pt/mrw4vo?STEVENP-0FCEE2

    and receive $25 in account credit.

    Competition is great, love what Metro / Boost is doing to put some heat on AT&T. But it's good to have options and this is a nice options for those who don't care about the 3mbps (I don't like it personally though).

    Curious, what other carriers are "removing restrictions" exactly? The important number isn't 3. 3mbps or 30 Mbps you can surf the web open Facebook do anything like that just fine. The important number is 1.5 Mbps streaming speeds. This is the exact same speeds metro pcs and T-Mobile stream at. So again, what carrier removes restrictions? If you have a carrier that offers a totally unlimited plan with zero restrictions feel free to let everyone know about it, I'm sure many would love to join.

    I'm not sure about that, as att postpaid also has a 3mbps unlimited plan. I think they just feel their unthrottled plans are worth a lot more than 50-60 a month. Or 4 for 100.

    That and the name. I’ve ran into co-workers and friends that have AT&T and would not even think about trying out cricket cause it doesn’t say “AT&T” on their phones upper left corner.

    Some people will only use “AT&T” or one of the big names. Not sure if it’s pride or that they rather waste money. *Shrugs*

    Cause I’m sure half, if not most, wouldn’t notice the difference between cricket and post paid AT$T so long as they were in the same native coverage. Exceptions would be posts paid roaming of course.

    In fact, I ran into someone that has the $60 unlimited 3mbps deal. After I told him about cricket, he was more than happy to say that it isn’t att lol. It’s like he felt betrayed or something. This deal would be awesome for someone like him... and not like he could leave anyhow with us “loaner” phone that he pays for.

    I've bandwidth limited my phone via my home router to 1500kbps and confirmed with a speedtest that it's in effect. So far I've streamed Youtube, watchESPN, go90 and Fox Sports Go with no issues... totally watchable, some almost at 720p level. Unless you are casting to an HDTV on LTE regularly, I don't see how this is not usable. Even web browsing and Facebook are smooth and quick... at 1.5Mbps, not to mention those would be 3Mbps. I wonder how DTVNow and others are so much different that people find it unusable? If my testing holds up, we're going from 4x5GB + 1x8GB=$110/mo to 5x unlimited for only $125/mo.

    To quote Ronald Reagan,et al, there is nothing more dangerous than someone who thinks they know something, when they really don't. And beside, we need to keep and thank those folks who use AT&T and subsidize cricket.
