Walmart now offering Go Big and Go Bigger hotspot data plans from TruConnect

TruConnect, which is an MVNO that piggybacks on Sprint's network, has introduced two new Internet on the Go plans on Thursday that rely on a mobile hotspot. The Go Big and Go Bigger plans will be available to purchase only through Walmart stores. Neither requires a contract but they differ mainly in when the data allotment expires.

The Go Big plans have three tiers, starting at a 500MB/$10 option, going onto a 1.5GB/$25 offering and culminating in a 4GB/$45 choice. The data needs to be used up within a year of activation.

The Go Bigger plan offers up to 8GB of data but the allotment expires after 30 days. Pricing is set at 1GB for $10, 3GB for $25, and 8GB for $45.

All options require a MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot that can connect to up to five Wi-Fi devices. The hardware is priced at $79.88 at Walmart, and new users who buy the hotspot and their first allotment of data will get an extra 3GB. There are no associated activation or overage fees.

Data can be purchased at Walmart stores and online, as well as on TruConnect's own site.
