Straight Talk Unlimited Plan Comparison
Most of the plans from Straight Talk are “unlimited” plans. This means that they give you a certain amount of high-speed data before throttling the speeds down to 2G or lower. For most users, you could easily get by with 5GB per line which is their cheapest. They’re also one of the few carriers that give you the choice of pre-paying for the entire year to get a discount.

Staight Talk vs. Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile

As we mentioned previously, Straight Talk relies on the Sprint network along with T-Mobile and AT&T for their coverage. This makes it so that you can get coverage in most areas of the United States. Their coverage is very similar to the other carriers that we’ve compared it to with the only downside being that you don’t currently have the option to get a 2-year contract or lease a phone. This is the main different between Straight Talk and let’s say Verizon or AT&T. At Straight Talk, you will have to purchase your device at full price, but then you will be able to take advantage of prepaid unlimited data plans that are currently priced lower than you can find at any of the major providers.

If you already have a device then you can check its compatibility with the Straight Talk network through their website. Straight Talk is a joint venture between Tracfone and Walmart, so you would also be able to go into most Walmart’s to find more information on plans and if your current phone would work with their plans. Another downside of Straight Talk in comparison with the major carriers is they don’t run deals to help you switch. This means that if you’re cutting a contract early you won’t be able to find an offer to pay your early termination fees or other fees associated with switching to another carrier before your contract expires.

    How fast are Straight Talks unlimited plans? I’ve heard that the unlimited data is super slow which pretty much means having unlimited data is pointless. Are there plans where you can pay for fast unlimited data or is it just you’re doomed and should go with one of the larger carriers?

      As we mentioned, Straight Talk runs off a network that combines both AT&T and T-Mobile so you should be able to get decent coverage just about everywhere within the United States.

      According to their website, you’re purchasing a set amount of high-speed data for each plan which should be similar to the data speed on the AT&T/T-Mobile networks. Once you’ve used up that data then you’ll go to a throttled data speed which is going to be pretty slow and you more than likely won’t be able to stream video or do other things that require a decent data speed. You can look through the plans above and you should be able to find something that gives you the amount of data you need at a price that’s lower than the other major networks when you combine the price of the device, etc.
