We’ve recently worked with a few clients who were paying too much for their Internet or cellular service. Internet service providers (ISPs) and cellular carriers occasionally adjust their service plans to account for new technologies, economies of scale, changing competitive landscapes, and marketing efforts. Sometimes they’ll increase speeds or capabilities across the board, but more often, when they debut new plans, current customers are grandfathered into their existing plans, often without notification. Upgrading to a new, better plan is usually simple—first, check the plan details on your ISP’s or cellular carrier’s website. Then, if they look better or cheaper—or if you don’t remember what service levels you should be getting—call the company’s support line and ask if switching plans would be beneficial. Beware that they may try to upsell you on a more expensive plan, so agree to switch only if you’ll end up paying less or getting significantly more. Remember, more speed isn’t necessarily worthwhile—most people won’t notice the difference between 250 Mbps and 1 Gbps, for instance.
Recommended Cellular Carrier
We have been recommending Mint Mobile for most of our clients, as it uses the T-Mobile 5G Network, but at substantial savings. The prices below were the time this article was published, and as you can see, beat most of the other carriers. It is worth taking a look.
All their plans include:
UNLIMITED TALK & TEXT
HIGH SPEED DATA
FREE CALLING TO MEX & CAN
FREE MOBILE HOTSPOT
Easily use a Free eSIM with your iPhone
It may not seem like a big deal, but other carriers charge for this…kind of a rip-off
