Boost Mobile has unveiled its first Carrier Crusher plans, which are also the first in AT & T’s network. The main product of Carrier Crusher is an annual plan of 100 USD designed for users who use less than 10 GB of data per month. It costs $ 100 per year and will give users access to unlimited conversation and text, as well as 1GB of high-speed data. Prepaid mobile operator owned by Dish cited several studies in its announcement, including one that found that 45 percent of Americans pay for unlimited data, even though one in three uses less than 5 GB.
Stephen Stokols, CEO of Boost Mobile, said:
“The U.S. market is set up so that operators provide a high price to all Americans today. That’s great for 15 percent of users who spend over 10GB of data per month, but for the rest of us we subsidize the bill for those users. You wouldn’t pay $ 70 for everything you can to eat at a buffet that you only want a salad, so why are we forced to choose everything you can eat in the wireless system? “
In addition to an annual plan of $ 100, Boost has also launched the Carrier Crusher product with unlimited talk and text plus 15GB of data. It costs $ 20 a month, but customers will be charged annually. For those who prefer to pay monthly, it now offers a package of $ 25 and $ 15 with unlimited talk and text, as well as 5GB and 2G data, respectively.
Dish signed a contract with AT&T back in July, paying the operator at least $ 5 billion over 10 years to provide voice, data and messaging services to its Boost Mobile, Ting and Republic Wireless customers. Boost used to be Sprint’s prepaid brand until the company had to single it out as part of its merger with T-Mobile. Prior to signing with AT&T, Boost relied entirely on T-Mobile’s network. However, the company’s relationship deteriorated when T-Mobile announced it was shutting down Sprint’s legacy network used by Boost on January 1, 2022. Dish argued that the deadline did not give it enough time to migrate its customers, and T-Mobile eventually agreed to move to March 31 next year.
