Is straight talk on the Verizon network?
Straight Talk is a type of carrier known as an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator), which means that it doesn't run or own a wireless network. Instead, it purchases the right to use towers from AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint.
The company has long advertised $45 for unlimited calling, unlimited texting, and unlimited data…but it's not really unlimited data. Straight Talk has now fessed up about how much data is too much data. There will not be 'unlimited data' anymore. They'll give you 2.5 GB of high speed data each month.
- T-Mobile users can still buy unlimited data plans, but they work like AT&T's—they're throttled. That means while you won't incur any overages for going over your limit (2GB for the "Plus" plan and 5GB for the "Premium" plan), your data speeds will be throttled for the rest of the month when you go over.
- Unlimited data at up to 4G LTE speeds on your handset! Get in the groove and listen without limits using Music Unlimited™, included in MetroPCS $40, $50, and $60 plans at no additional charge.
- Customers can choose between 5GB of high-speed data for $35 each month, or 8GB for just $45 monthly. Growing data will be available on Boost's $30, $35 and $45 Unlimited monthly plans, all of which include unlimited talk and text and unlimited 2G data.
