AT&T MVNO H2O ups data allotments for priciest plans

H2O Wireless sweetened its three most expensive monthly plans, adding more data to each plan while leaving the pricing intact.

The AT&T (NYSE: T) MVNO now offers 4.5 GB of data rather than 3 GB of data as well as unlimited talk and text for $60 a month. It upped the data allotment in its $50 monthly plan from 2 GB to 4 GB, and tripled the amount of data in its $40-a-month plan to 3 GB.

H2O's two cheapest plans were unchanged. All of its plans include unlimited talk and text as well as unlimited international talk to more than 50 countries and unlimited international text. Plans also include varying amounts of credit for international voice calls.

The prepaid service provider told its customers about the new plans two weeks ago, as Prepaid Phone News reported. It also trumpeted the change this morning via Twitter.

H2O is managed by Locus Telecommunications, a Fort Lee, N.J.-based subsidiary of the Japanese telecom KDDI. KDDI claims roughly 45 million mobile users and 8 million fixed-line broadband customers, and generated nearly $43 billion last year.

H2O tweaks its data offerings fairly regularly to keep pace with market forces. In 2013 it began offering unlimited data at $60 a month after discontinuing the offering and replacing it with a 2 GB cap in late 2011. More recently, the service provider increased its data allotments in October of 2015 only to reverse course in February, reverting to its previous plans.
