This new $15-a-month ‘unlimited’ plan is probably too good to be true
In the world of wireless, "unlimited" has been abused and misaligned until it basically means "any data plan that doesn't charge you extra when you hit your cap." So while I'm provisionally excited about a new MVNO called Unreal Mobile that's bragging about a $15-per-month unlimited plan, I won't be signing up until I see all the details.
Unreal Mobile is being rolled out by the same company behind FreedomPop, a popular prepaid MVNO. The company claims that it'll be able to offer crazy-good pricing on Sprint and T-Mobile's network thanks to the "market conditions" created by the proposed merger of Sprint and T-Mobile. While both companies are busy trying to persuade regulators that they should be allowed to merge, so the theory goes, they won't be able to engage in any kind of behavior that would be perceived as anti-competitive, like refusing network access to a new MVNO.
