What if I need more than 1 GB?

No problem! Simply choose 1 GB High-Speed Data under One-Time Features and add as many times as you want in the same billing cycle. This can be added to your existing one-time feature or monthly feature. There is no limit.

Do I have to wait until I run out of high-speed data to add 1GB High-Speed Data?

No. You can add 1GB High-Speed Data any time during your monthly plan cycle, whether you're out of high-speed data or just want to plan ahead. Remember, if you don't use the high-speed data, it will not carry over to your next monthly billing cycle.

What if I don't use all the data in my 1 GB High-Speed Data add-on?

Any unused high-speed data will not be rolled over and will expire at the end of your current monthly plan cycle.

What happens when I use all of my plan's high-speed data allotment?

For Cricket plans with limited high-speed data access, download speeds are a maximum of 8 Mbps for compatible 4G LTE Devices and 4 Mbps for compatible 4G HSPA+ Devices. After your high-speed data allowance is used (if applicable), your data download speeds will be reduced to a maximum 128Kbps for the rest of your monthly service period. The 1 GB High-Speed Data feature gives you another gigabyte at the download speeds of a maximum of 8 Mbps.
Current Cricket rate plans with limited high-speed data allowances are the following: $30/2 GB, $40/5 GB.

Is it better to change my rate plan?

Maybe! Adding a gig allows you to have a little extra data as needed or every month. If you need extra data every month, you can look into current Cricket plans to see if one might be right for you. It is important to also note that if you change your rate plan, you may lose certain promotional plan discounts.

How do I view my data usage?

You can view your data usage in the myCricket app or at My Account.

What's a good way to manage my high-speed data?

Use Wi-Fi whenever possible. If you have an Android, connecting to Wi-Fi is super easy via the Cricket Wi-Fi Manager.
