Two of the telco’s prepaid plans come with unlimited international calling and texting to ten selected countries. Hence, you can talk and text your heart out without worrying about an outrageous phone bill.
Generally speaking, all Boost prepaid plans are pretty attractive. They come with unlimited calls and texts. The only thing that differentiates them is the amount of data included for each plan. First off, there’s the affordable 1GB option for $10. This comes with a 7 day credit expiry, which is pretty limiting. However, all the other prepaid plans come with 28 day credit expiry, so you might be better off with one of those.
For $30 you get 3GB anytime + 1GB every weekend, for $40 5GB anytime + 1GB every weekend, and for $50 7GB anytime + 1GB every weekend. This is where things get interesting.The $40 and $50 prepaid plans also come with unlimited international calls and text, so they make a great choice for anyone with loved ones overseas. There are 10 countries included in the mix – Canada, China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, United Kingdom, and USA.
It’s important to note that the plans also pack an impressive amount of data. 5GB is more than enough even for heavy mobile internet users. Thirty percent of smartphone owners currently use only around 500MB per month. The average smartphone owner uses around 2.9GB.
