Unlimited Data Plan FAQs

About Cricket's unlimited plans

With Cricket’s unlimited plans, you’ll get just what you need – unlimited talk and text, data access, no annual contracts, multiline discounts, a variety of add-on features and much more.

The difference between the Cricket More and Cricket Core plans is data speed and Mobile Hotspot. The Cricket More plan has our fastest 4G LTE data speed and includes 15GB of Mobile Hotspot (req’s compatible device). The Cricket Core Plan offers data speeds at a max of 3Mbps. On both plans, video streaming is limited to 1.5 Mbps, SD quality (about 480p).

We like our network big and our price small! Cricket Core and Cricket More offers unlimited talk, text and data - in and between the U.S., Mexico and Canada (Canada usage cannot exceed 50%.).

Mobile Hotspot requires a compatible device. Check device eligibility.

How Cricket Compares

Cricket's network has more 4G LTE coverage than  Sprint or Boost (based on overall coverage in the U.S; 4G LTE not available everywhere). Cricket customers enjoy a great experience at our current data speeds.
