PlatinumTel’s unlimited tariff – USA

Pre-paid operator PlatinumTel has joined the growing ranks of operators in the USA offering unlimited plans. For USD 50 per month subscribers will receive unlimited voice call and SMS as well as 100MB of data allowance which is billed as 3G web usage which includes MMS. Cheaper top up options are unlimited calls and SMS for five days for USD 10 and 15 days for USD 30.

The cheapest handset available from the MVNO is the LG LX-160 and costs just under USD 25. Subscribers also have access to a qwerty handset from Motorola.

Omar Abhari, Senior Vice President of Operations for PlatinumTel commented: "Having access to a full-featured, pay-as-you-go wireless plan is critical to millions of people who don't want or can't afford annual wireless contracts that ask users to pay month-to-month. Thus, prepaid has become one of the fastest-growing segments of the wireless market, where most people who want a cell phone now have one. Our new Unlimited Plan provides even greater flexibility for our customers at a price that can't be beat."

PlatinumTel has been operational since 2001 and operates over Sprint’s nationwide network.
