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 at differing speeds - with the ability to add a hotspot with no throttle cap.

Most interestingly - US Mobile offers unlimited data plans on the Verizon network without a throttle cap on hotspot data other than the throttled speed of the plan you choose. There is currently a plan that offers full LTE speeds.

They also appear to be working on a WiFi based add-on plan, which is currently promoted as being $10/month and will include in-flight WiFi access (presumptively on select flights). This service is not yet available, but is an interesting option for saving data.

US Mobile also provides customers with a free VPN service through a Windscribe partnership.

Policies & Perks:

  • Domestic Roaming: We don't believe US Mobile provides domestic roaming based on their coverage maps.
  • Throttling: None above what is listed as a 'top speed' per plan (you choose your speed)
  • International: No international usage is included.
  • Mobile Hotspot Use: Mobile hotspot use is permitted on capped plans; you can purchase unlimited plans with hotspot as well. However, service is only on smartphones and tablets. Dedicated hotspot devices are prohibited.
  • 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.
  • 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 with prepaid accounts.
  • Unlimited Data Plans: A variety of unlimited plans are available at differing speeds and price points. Some include mobile hotspot, some do not.
    • Network ManagementDiffers between 12GB - 16GB based on which unlimited plan you choose.

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