Product Overview: US Mobile (Cellular Data Plans)

US Mobile is an MVNO that runs on the T-Mobile and Verizon networks. They offer smartphone-based plans.

US Mobile sells customizable plans, touting over 350+ combination options for plans involving voice, text, and data. They also sell "unlimited" data plans but these are actually just tiered data that throttle down to 2G speeds once the data bucket is used up.

Mobile hotspot comes for free with any custom plan, but the maximum data for those is only 3GB.  For the custom "unlimited" plans, mobile hotspot is a $10/month addon.

The Unlimited plans also offer a choice of data speed (throttle).  1Mbps is free - the other two options are are "fast" (5Mbps) for $5/month extra or "ludicrous" (unthrottled) for $15/month extra.

There is no network management on any of US Mobile's plans.



Got Coverage?

But there is no roaming and no international use at all.

US Mobile also provides customers with a free VPN service.

Policies & Perks:

  • Domestic Roaming: None.
  • Throttling: None for custom plans.  Customers can choose their own throttle for Unlimited custom plans - 1Mbps, 5Mbps or unthrottled.
  • International: No international usage is included.
  • Mobile Hotspot Use: Free for plans up to 3GB.  A $10/month add-on for plans with higher data allotments.
  • Data Roll Over: Base data allotment does not roll-over on capped plans. Top-up data expires 30 days from purchase date as long as the account is active for lines on the T-Mobile network and up to the end of the next billing cycle for the Verizon network (but you must have autopay enabled).
  • Overage Charges: There are no overage charges on prepaid plans. Once you use your data, service is discontinued until the next billing period. Data top-ups can be purchased.
  • Streaming: No streaming services are provided and there are no streaming throttles.
  • Unlimited Data Plans: Advertised, but plans are throttled to 2G after a set amount of high-speed data (5, 10 or 20GB).
  • Network Management: None.

Testing Status: We do not keep a US Mobile plan in our testing arsenal.
