After the major competitors announce user friendly options, US Cellular plans to increase shared data subscribers' caps
Good news for the shared data plan users of the US Cellular, they will now be able to have more data on their plans and this will be coming in effect soon. An internal document was leaked which was revealed by Droid Life which indicates that US Cellular is planning on increasing its shared data subscribers' caps. If this is to be considered as authentic, then the $40 shared plan which was originally offering 100 MB mobile data will now allow 1 GB which is almost triple the original offer. The $50 shared plan on the other hand had 1 GB data limit and it will now come with 2 GB of data now whereas the $60 tier is going to fetaure 3 GB of data as opposed to 2 GB previously.
New customers of the cellular company are being offers in which they can sign up for an introductory 300MB tier for $15 a month while the existing customers are automatically being updated to the new data allotments. A $60 single line plan with 1GB of data for a limited time is also coming in. This step might be taken in response to what the competitors are doing, since the major rivals like AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile have announced some user friendly packages recently.
