At $45 a month for unlimited talk, text, and 2.5GB data, there’s really no question Straight Talk’s prepaid service offers one of the best values this side of T-Mobile. Operating on either T-Mobile or AT&T’s networks, the MVNO has officially announced that they’re bumping up their previous 2.5GB of “unlimited” data to 3GB — 10 times more data than what the other guys are offering for the same price.
It was only recently that, after years, Straight Talk finally came out and admitted to throttling users after using 2.5GB of data. A good thing too, as we may have never known about the new 500MB bonus on top of that. The network you’ll be using — either T-Mobile or AT&T — depends on the smartphone you bring, just keep in mind you’ll need a nano SIM to take advantage of 4G LTE on T-Mobile (such as an iPhone 5s, HTC One M8, etc.).
