I used to be on the 5 line grandfathered plan for $100. Cricket made me change (July) and since then my data speeds haven’t been great. First I went to the Unlimited $55 plan (4 lines for $100) during peak times the data became unusable, <1Mbps. In the Bay Area and then traveling to Vegas, Dallas and NYC  

I tried switching to the 10GB plan as in theory the data isn’t slowed during peak times. I am still seeing data slow <5 Mbps during busy times with LTE full bars on a iPhone XR and an Android with 5G. Non busy times I’ll hit about 30-60Mbps. 

I went to this plan even though it’s 4 lines for $110, $10 more a month thinking there’s no slowdown so said the Cricket CSR

Anyone have an opinion on this? I was trying to avoid paying $130 for the Unlimited Premium w/ 4 lines.

In my own opinion and Experience do the network reset from time to time. also make sure that the data saver on your phone is disabled or off you can see that on data usage on settings

Hey @Jstone my advice - switch to the Unlimited More plan. That plan has the fastest data speeds and they don’t slow you down. The $40 Plan speeds are reduced to 128Kbps max if you go over the 10GB. Not sure if you qualify, but if you get the ACP discount, that brings the bill to $100.😎
