Find The Right Plan For You

What's a gig and why should I care?

Think of a gig like a bushel. Just as a bushel measures the amount of grain grown, a gig simply measures the amount of data used. And, like a bushel, a gig is pretty big. With one gig (or GB), you can send and receive a million emails. But what about the things that eat up a lot of data?


What can you do with a gig?

What plan fits
your lifestyle?
No matter which plan you choose (10, 15, or 20GB/month), you'll enjoy email, social media posts, and web page views. But what about the things that consume much more data – photos, music and videos?
