Cricket Wireless, the MVNO owned by AT&T, tends to change its pricing tiers from time to time. Back in May, the company increased the amount of high-speed data on its $40/month plan from 3GB to 4GB. Starting November 5, new changes will go into affect for its $30/mo and $40/mo tiers.

The company's $30/mo tier will be increased from 1GB of data to 2GB, while the $40/mo plan will jump from 4GB to 5GB. Once customers go over the limit, the speed will drop to a painfully-slow 128Kbps. Both of those plans include unlimited calling and texting inside the United States.

Unfortunately, some of the carrier's add-ons are still not permitted with the the $30 and $40 plans. International service and tethering is still limited to the 8GB and Unlimited tiers.
