Ultra Mobile and Univision Add Additional DATAXTRA 3G Data


T-Mobile MVNO Ultra Mobile today increased the amount of high speed data included with most of its plans and made a number of other plan tweaks. There is a catch however. Most of the extra high speed data is delivered at "3G" speeds, which Ultra calls "DATAXTRA". Ultra doesn't specify how fast those 3G speeds are but I'm guessing the will be at the same 512 Kbps "3G speeds" that T-Mobile serves to its postpaid T-Mobile One customers when they tether or hotspot. With this latest change data on most of Ultra's plans are served at three different speeds. For example, on Ultra's $29 unlimited everything plan, the first 1 GB of data is delivered at up to full LTE speeds, the second 1 GB at 3G speeds and everything else at 2G speeds of about 128 Kbps. The above is simplified a bit for clarity. The data speed story at Ultra Mobile is a little more complicated. That's because of the "Data My Way" feature that Ultra added last month. Data My Way throttles 4G data speeds to 1.5 Mbps by default, but users can switch to full speed data or choose 1Mbps throttling. Lower data rates force streaming video services to deliver lower quality video resulting in lower data use. Here are all of Ultra Mobile's plans marked up with strike out and bold fonts to show the differences between the old and new plans:

  • $19* 100 MB (hard capped) data, unlimited calls to 30 60 international destinations, $1.25 int'l call credit, $10 int'l roaming credit

  • $24* 100 500 MB (hard capped) 4G data, unlimited calls to 30 international destinations, $7 int'l call credit, $10 int'l roaming credit

* Plus MTS surcharge of 5.9% to 19.7% for California residents and a 2-5% regulatory cost recovery fee for all customers. There appear to be no changes to Ultra's multi-line plan which includes 1 GB of 4G data, 60 international destinations, $2.50 int'l call credit plus 1,000 Minutes to 10+ countries and a $10 int'l roaming credit. Pricing for the multi-line plan is three months for $79 ($26.33/month), six months for $129 ($21.50/month) and 12 months for $228 ($19/month). Ultra Mobile also operates the T-Mobile MVNO Univision Mobile for the Univision Spanish Language Cable TV Network. Univision Mobile plans are similar to Ultra Mobile plans except that the included countries for free international calling are different. The included countries for Univision are all Spanish or Portuguese speaking countries. Most Univision plans also received some added 3G DATAXTRA data. Here are Univision's new plans:
