Looking to get a bit of wireless internet on the go, but don't want to sign one of those pesky 2-year contracts to get a subsidized data device? There's an option for situations like that, believe it or not. TruConnect Mobile has just announced that it'll bring mobile internet on Go, Go Big and Go Bigger plans that are offered at Walmart. Needless to say, this deal will bring the new services to a huge swath of new eyes. Internet on the Go services have always featured data that rolls over from month to month with no set expiration date (if used once per year), which makes them very popular with users who need occasional Internet access.
The new “Go Big” plan gives these users up to 4 Gigabytes (GB) of data, which means fewer refills and the assurance that the purchased megabytes (MB) will remain in the user’s account until they are used (if used once per year). Go Big plans range in cost from $10 for 500 MB of data, $25 for 1.5GB and $45 for 4 GB. For heavier data users, the “Go Bigger” plan offers up to 8 GB of data, and has a 30-day expiration from date of redemption. The service is ideal for a growing segment of users who want a single prepaid service to use both as the primary Internet access at home and also while on the road. The Go Bigger plan is much less expensive than comparable services from major phone carriers, but still offers the flexibility of a prepaid program for users that don’t want to be locked into a long-term contract. Go Bigger plans range in cost from $10 for 1.0 GB of data, $25 for 3GB and $45 for 8 GB.
The service is powered by the MiFi 2200 hotspot, which can be had in off-contract fashion for just under $80. New users of both of the plans will also get a bonus 3GB of data, worth up to $25, added to the user’s account with the first refill after the purchase of the Internet on the Go Mobile Hotspot. So, if you're trying to stay connected over the holidays without having to think about the next two years, here's your plan.
