bmobile's largest prepaid package now costs 62% more

No more $215 Unlimited prepaid package.

Range was $20 (one day) - $99 (one week) - $215 (one month)

Range is now $20 (one day) - $99 (one week) - $349 (one month)

Up until last week's announcement (see links below) prepaid customers of bmobile could access a $215 package that included 3GB of data, 300 minutes of local/international calls, unlimited bmobile-to-bmobile calls (which was really 40,000+ minutes), and unlimited SMS (which was really 4,000 text messages).

That represented great value, and unless you spent your life on the phone, or were live-streaming swimming from Tobago to Trinidad every day, it was more than enough and served the purposes of anyone looking for an 'unlimited package'.

The $215 package is now gone from among the options available via *123# and has been replaced by the $349 unlimited package. That's an over-62% increase in the cost for prepaid customers of bmobile's largest prepaid package. Even if it offers even more data/talk/texts, it cuts out all who were satisfied with the $215 package, and the likelihood of them switching to $349 is low.
