Cricket Wireless is one of many MVNOs in the United States, offering a variety of pre-paid wireless plans using AT&T's network. Back in October, the carrier began offering a temporary $50/month deal that covered 8GB of high-speed data. Not only is that promotion becoming permanent, but Cricket is changing some of its other plans to offer more data.

Starting tomorrow, January 27, Cricket is changing its $40/month and $60/month plans. The $40 plan is being bumped from 2.5GB to 3GB of data, while the $60 plan is moving from 10GB to 12GB. All pricing tiers, except the base $30/month plan, also have a $5 discount when AutoPay is enabled. Not bad pricing at all, even compared to other MVNOs, including Project Fi.

In addition to the pricing changes, Cricket is also offering deals on eight devices when you port your number to Cricket. They're all low-end phones, but some of them are completely free when you switch. The updated prices aren't live on Cricket's site just yet, but you can see the table in the PR block below.
