SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 19, 2014) - Today, cell phone experts from MyRatePlan.com, the leading cell phone plan comparison site on the web, announced their annual ranking of the best family cell phone plans. In just a couple of months, 2014 has already seen a whirlwind of change in the cell phone industry, as carriers battle for customers. Increased competition has led to better prices and features for customers. To create their ranking of the best cell phone family plans of the year, the experts from MyRatePlan took several factors into account including price, voice limits, data limits, text messaging, coverage area, customer reviews, and expert opinions.
Here are the best family cell phone plans of the year, according to MyRatePlan.com:
1. Verizon More Everything Plan - The Verizon Wireless More Everything Plan is this year's choice for the best family cell phone plan. With the Verizon Wireless More Everything Plan, families get unlimited talk and text, and share data out of a pool. Data limits can range from 200 MB up to 50 GB depending, and the price is relative to how much data the family opts to receive.
2. Straight Talk Unlimited Plan - The Straight Talk Unlimited Plan is another excellent family cell phone plan. With the Straight Talk Unlimited Plan, families pay $45 for each line, and each line gets unlimited talk and text, as well as unlimited data. The data speed is throttled at 2.5 GB, but there are no overage charges, so the customer can use as much data as they want. As an added benefit, the Straight Talk Unlimited Plan is a no contract family cell phone plan.
3. T-Mobile Simple Choice Family Plan - The T-Mobile Simple Choice Family Plan is a no contract family cell phone plan that offers unlimited talk, text, and data. The plan offers different tiers of full speed data. This means that even though all the plans offer unlimited data, one data speed tier is throttled at 500 MB per month, one at 2.5 GB per month, and the top tier has unlimited full speed data. In addition, the plan offers unlimited international data, which is great for families who frequently travel overseas.
"The wireless price wars between the major carriers in the United States has really been heating up recently," explained Logan Abbott, President of MyRatePlan.com. "All of this competition benefits the customer."
