Cricket Wireless has opened a new Clifton Park location in the Shopper’s World Plaza at 15 Park Avenue, offering residents an alternative to the area’s big mobile providers: AT&T and Verizon.
The communications service provider – which offers talk, text, and data with no annual contracts – is a subsidiary of AT&T and uses the AT&T network for its service.
In an interview with Community News, store manager Maurice Bostick said, “We have great prices with our plans and we can compete with all our competitors. We can save you a lot of money. That’s why we’re here, to serve the community and save people money.”
Cricket Wireless prides itself on being transparent with customers. Their two biggest selling points are the AT&T network and no annual contracts. When you sign up for a monthly contract with Cricket Wireless, all taxes and fees are included, so you know exactly what you will be paying each month before you sign the contract.
Another feature of the Cricket Wireless plans is separate data plans for each line. Bostick told Community News, “For a household it’s nice because one person can’t use all the data. With other plans, you’re given a maximum of data you can use with your group plan. If one person uses all the data and you go and try to use it and it’s gone you’re stuck. Our plans prevent that from happening.”
