Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is not just only a name to rely on when it comes to cheap commodities and other items. They will soon cater to their customers a cellphone plan using the company’s name as well. They hope that it will boost their company’s status as a provider of low cost items and be named as a mobile service provider that offers low rates at the same time.
Right now, people can already avail of the mobile plans from Wal-Mart though different carriers in United States. This already includes T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and even Sprint Nextel.
By September 20, T-Mobile will be offering a plan called the Wal-Mart Family mobile Plan that would have a wide array of mobile phones at a very low price. Best of all, consumers will get to pay a flat fee every month and would not be tied to any kind of contract as well. It will only cost $45 monthly to have unlimited texts and calls. In case you want your kids to have one too, just add another $25 on top of your monthly fee for a family plan.
As for the data, since users would not have to pay for it every month, they just have to pay it in amount instead. You would not be charged for the first 100 megabytes. However, you have to pay $10 up to $20 for the 200 megabytes. If that is not yet enough, maybe the 500 megabyte worth of data would be sufficient, which is worth $25. And $40 is all it takes for you to access as much as 1,000 megabytes!
According to Ravi Jariwala, the spokesperson from Wal-Mart, their company gets the support of the major mobile phone carriers as they aim for high-quality yet cost-effective mobile phone plans. And since it also carriers Wal-Mart’s name, consumers can rest assure that the plans would not have hidden charges whatsoever, thus making it very affordable for everyone.
