More data added to $40 plan on Cricket Wireless, now stands at 4GB

Cricket Wireless just upgraded its Basic tier for those who need a little more high-speed data.

Rather than paying $40 per month for 3GB of high-speed data, the prepaid carrier’s Basic tier now comes with 4GB at no extra charge. It’s an increase of 33.3% in data for both new and existing customers choosing that plan.

An additional $5 per month can be saved, too, if you enroll in auto-pay. Cricket Wireless’ plan for 4GB of data then drops to $35 per month with taxes or fees included. But, as with all plans from this prepaid carrier, your upload and download speeds are capped. And, when you surpass the monthly allowance of high-speed data, Cricket Wireless can throttle you to near-useless speeds.

The raise to 4GB of data for the $40 plan at Cricket Wireless takes effect on Friday, May 12.
