NEW YORK, Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra Mobile, a nationwide mobile carrier developing first-of-its-kind mobile phone services with unlimited international communications, today announced the launch of 'The New $19,' a new plan, opening the door to Ultra's unlimited affordable price plans in 60+ countries worldwide.
'The New $19' will provide unlimited nationwide talk & text with 100 MB, 4G LTE data to 60+ countries for only $19 a month and include $1.25 Call Anywhere Credit and $5 One-Time International Roaming Credit. The unparalleled pricing will go into effect in countries such as Brazil, India, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Mexico, China, Canada, Dominican Republic and more. This affordable price plan is the latest offering from Ultra in order to solidify itself as the most value oriented international cellular service on the market today. The new plan offers cellular service in double the amount of destinations as before.
Ultra is also doubling the amount of high-speed data to its unlimited plans with the launch of DataXtra. For unlimited plans, when 4G LTE data runs out, high speed 3G data will kick in at no additional cost, giving customers twice the high-speed data access they need on their mobile devices. Further, international roaming allows subscribers to make and receive calls and texts in any of the 135 countries, including ones customers connect with the most – with no new SIM cards or phones required. This announcement follows up Ultra Mobile's popular 'Data My Way' plan which gave customers the freedom to choose up to three different data speeds, making 4G LTE data last longer without changing usage habits.
