TracFone unveils new tariff – USA

TracFone Wireless, an MVNO which supports the US government backed SafeLink Wireless programme, has announced details of its latest tariff. The new tariff, which has been titled ‘Straight Talk’, will offer customers 1,000 minutes, 1,000 text messages and 30 MB of data for USD 30 a month. The tariff will also enable customers to call directory assistance (available by dialling 411) for free.

The new tariff, which will be available through Wal-Mart stores or over the internet, will initially be subject to a staggered roll-out, with customers in Atlanta, Phoenix and Denver being given the opportunity to sign-up first. An expansion timetable has yet to be published for the new tariff.
