I’m pleased to announce, effective immediately, we’re changing our cell phone plans and rolling out new, enhanced rates. Again.
Again? Yes, we’ve improved our plans NINE times in recent years! And with each enhancement our customers received more free minutes, more free text messages and more free data than they had before. Amazingly enough, while making all these changes we’ve never raised our rates.
While other companies have been raising rates or shocking their customers with high overage fees, we chose to follow a different path. Instead of charging more, we thought it made more sense to give you more. To meet your increasing cell phone needs, we’ve made our cell phone plans more robust. Depending on which plan you selected, you will receive a free usage increase of anywhere from 20% to 100%.
As a Consumer Cellular customer, you are allowed to change your plan, without penalty. You may increase or decrease minutes, texts or data on your plan at any time, thus avoiding unexpected overage charges. Please see the charts below for specific changes.
Best of all, even though we enhanced our cell phone plans multiple times over the years, we didn’t raise our prices. Plus, you don’t need to do anything to receive the benefits of these new plans. We’ll automatically upgrade your account for you.
I’d like to mention one more key benefit of this change. I believe our new, enhanced rates make it more practical than ever to share your cellular plan with other family members, especially since you’ll have more usage to share. You can add loved ones to your account through our family cell phone plans and leverage the extra minutes, messages and data to your family’s advantage. The real beauty is adding a line is inexpensive and only costs $10 per month per line added.
Remember, with our new rates you get more of what you’re already getting and you don’t have to pay extra for it. Some might call that a sweet deal. We call it looking out for our customers.
