Altice Mobile Phone Bill: What You Should be Paying

Are you pay too much for your Altice phone service? We can help.

A lot of people wonder will 5G cost more? When it comes to Altice Mobile, the unlimited plan cost includes things like the 5G Plan cost, but very little else. Still, the company does offer some of the least expensive starting plan prices. For example, if you are willing to use just one gigabyte per month of data with unlimited talk and text, your phone bill cost per month is as little as $14.

Network quality 

Altice Mobile is another independent mobile provider that uses the network coverage of existing companies, primarily AT&T and Sprint. This means the network quality received is contingent upon what AT&T or Sprint have to offer in your area which could be problematic if they don’t have reliable service where you live. Moreover it can prove difficult when you can’t control which network is used at any given time.

Altice mobile does offer discounts particularly things like line access fee discounts if you are an existing Suddenlink or Optimum customer. You can save $10 on each line.

They give you the option of adding extra data to your monthly plan if you don’t choose the unlimited data plan. This is a feature that is meant to help you in situations where you use up your data and want to avoid the inevitable speed throttle the company enforces on you for the remainder of your billing cycle.

Unlimited Plan

Altice mobile offers unlimited talk-and-text no matter which plan you choose. The unlimited plan cost is contingent upon the amount of data you want.

There are 3 plan types:

  • 3GB 
  • Unlimited GB
  • 1 GB

However, the fine print makes it clear that those who choose the unlimited data plan will get slower speeds and not just a little bit slower, but much slower. Once you use 20 Gigabytes of data each month your speed gets throttled to 2G even though you have access to 5G as an Altice Mobile customer.

With the other plans, once you reach the cap of one gigabyte or 3 gigabytes respectively, you get that same reduction in speed for the rest of your billing cycle from 5G where available to slow speeds of 2G. Of course the company is kind enough to give you the option of buying more data for the rest of the month. 

Family and Sharing plan

The Unlimited Family Plan cost is based on the number of lines and data. Below is an example of the cost based on data plans and number of lines:

The problem with this is the plans are determined by the amount of data you get and that data has to be the same amount for every phone line you add to a family or sharing plan. So, if you have one family member who needs significantly more data because they use their phone for work or school, you have to get a separate plan for them.

Prepaid plan

There are no annual contracts required with Altice Mobile which means there’s no commitment required and technically everything is prepaid in that you pay for each month you want to use the service.

How Altice Mobile’s Unlimited Plan Compares

Altice mobile has the most affordable Wireless plan you will get especially compared to big companies, with comparable plans from AT&T starting at $80, $70 for Verizon, and even $60 for T-Mobile or Sprint. But that price comes with a cost. 

Even though the average cell phone cost per month is cheaper, that doesn’t include components like no streaming services, SD only streaming where available, or throttling based on data caps. It also fails to account for the fact that other big companies will include talk and text in places like Canada or Mexico, and have the option for you to receive international texts in some cases as long as you are in the United States whereas with Altice Mobile, you have to pay for that separately.

Altice Mobile also has the ability to add up to 5 lines per plan which is one line more than big company like Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile. However, they don’t offer discounts if you add more lines. You simply pay double, triple, and so on.
