One of our core principles at Consumer Cellular is that we are always looking to provide you with unmatched value. This doesn’t necessarily mean just having the lowest prices, though our rates are among the best in the wireless industry.
Unmatched value includes giving you a variety of reasons to stay with us, despite fierce competition for your business. It means consistently providing useful, intelligent benefits you simply won’t get from another carrier. That’s why I’m so pleased to be able to announce a couple of important changes that I believe add even more flexibility and convenience to our service.
First, for the ninth year in a row, we’re expanding many of our most popular Talk and Connect monthly rate plans, adding more minutes, text messages, and web data—at no additional cost.
For some of our Connect Plans, we’re increasing both the number of text messages and the amount of web data you can use on your cellular plan each month. For instance, on our $5 per month Connect Plan, you’ll get an additional 500 texts and 50MB of data for the same price. We’re also making more web data available for those who need a bit extra—after you have used all of our 4GB plan, you can add additional 1GB’s for only $10 each, up to a maximum of 10GB each month.
You can talk more, too: we’re also adding minutes to some of our Talk Plans. This includes 250 additional minutes on our $20 monthly plan, and 500 additional minutes on both the $30 and $40 monthly plans—again with absolutely no change in the price.
But that’s not all. We realize that it’s not always easy to know how many minutes, texts, or data you’ll need in a month. While our Usage Alerts have always helped you keep track of what you have used, it was still up to you to change cellular plans when needed to get the best rate. Well, from now on, we’re taking the worry out of keeping track of your monthly usage. If you happen to go over your current plan amount, we’ll automatically upgrade you to a plan that covers the amount you used for the month.
In plain English, this means: no more overage fees! We prefer giving you the best, most cost-effective option for what you are actually using. With Automatic Upgrades, your monthly usage will always be covered by the best rate possible, with no surprises or additional fees.
Perhaps best of all, there’s no action required on your part. Our Automatic Upgrade program is included in your service. And as always, with Consumer Cellular you can change your cellular plans whenever you need, as much as you like, with no additional fees.
So if you’ve been auto-upgraded one month but know that your usage will dip back down the following month, you can simply change back to your previous plan.
I like to think that our greatest value comes from making things easier for our customers. Of course that starts with superior wireless coverage and award-winning 100% U.S. based customer service, but carries on further with more minutes, texts, and data, plus making sure you’re always receiving our best possible monthly rate. We’re not only making things simple, we’re providing simply unbeatable value!
