It's based on the Verizon network. Individaul plans are at $35 for unlimited voice and text and 2.5GB. Shared plans are at $60 for two lines, $85 for 3 and $110 for 4 lines with 5, 9 and 12GB respectively. Pretty competitive with Cricket.

Those plans are pretty close to Virgin Mobile as well.

Almost definitely 3G only at those prices. That takes all the appeal of a Verizon MVNO away, it's essentially equal to Virgin Mobile but slightly more expensive for those not in extremely rural areas.

Possibly going to be marketed towards older people who don't need data? The $25 unlimited talk/text plan does support smartphones. Good for older people who don't leave the house much but want a smartphone.

They still don't fully launch - considering even Tracfone and Straight Talk have Verizon LTE, I'd be surprised if these guys (also owned by Tracfone) don't get LTE. 

 

But once they get LTE and are at every Walmart, I can see them being very competitive against other budget brands. And others will respond, and we will all benefit.

I have 3 Lines on Cricket all on iPhones, if they can get LTE on Total Wireless it will be great.

They don't mention LTE for data, so it might be 3g only. I think Page Plus is the only Verizon mvno I've seen with LTE, and even then speeds are capped at 3.5mb/s.

 

Wow, that would be an improvement over the current speed on Verizon's LTE network in my area. I am lucky to get 1-2 MB down, and it used to be over 30+MB's

Why TracFone has so many different brand names?

 

Not sure, but diversification can lead to problems in the end. I personally think they are crazy for having that many prepaid brands.

And they have nothing to differentiate different brands. They all have same pricing plans and similar looking websites.
