This is Data Experiment - Research Project.
By signing up for this plan, you agree to participate in this beta test which is researching the field of data compression, speed variation, and data stream sponsorships among other things. The goal is to research and produce the next generation of data delivery which will reduce RingPlus' data costs while delivering a good consumer data experience and more free data.
We welcome all participants.
If you at anytime you no longer wish to participate in the beta test, you will be able to change to the Relaxed Free Plan 3.0 (see below).
Surfing Free Plan 3.0 [ research ]
This Plan includes:
$0/mo: 5,000 Talk, 5,000 Text, 200 MMS, 5,000 MB (plus an additional 500 MB more each month you stay in the research, with a max limited at 10, 000 MB per month for now)
A $35 Top Up is required to cover overages. If, and only if, the Top-Up balance reaches $0, another $35 auto Top Up will be automatically charged to your credit card on file.
Overages: (billed from your Top Up balance plus applicable telecom taxes and fees)
$0.05 per talk, text MMS
$15 per GB
*Social Media Requirement: Upon getting this Plan by any means described in this post, we kindly request that you connect your Twitter account to your RingPlus account (this can be done during activation). RingPlus will send an auto-Tweet via your Twitter that you got this plan.
After your Twitter is linked to your RingPlus, you will also be able press "0" (zero) on your phone to share what you hear on RingPlus Radio via your Twitter, and you can set up your voicemail to allow your callers to hear your most recent tweets!
What is different? (Why is it a research Plan)
The basic goal is making your data last longer and to reduce data burn, without the cell phone user rely noticing it and opening it up for alternative revenue streams paying for the free data.
You know that many companies currently are playing with data manipulation and slower speeds for streaming (but still enough to enjoy the video) with better compression, throttling some times, and sometimes not, to reduce data burn. We will do the same with the addition to inserting advertisement by internet search, or an ad when you launch the browser sometimes from time to time.
The goal is to bring you to unlimited data usage by sponsored data.
So, what do you have to lose try it out and if you don't like it, you can change any time to the Relaxed Free Plan 3.0
Relaxed Free Plan 3
$0: 3500 talk, 3500 text, and 3500 MB LTE (full-speed data) +200 MMS
Tethering $20 per year
Same overages and Top Up as the Surfing Free Plan (see below)
Your top up will be transferred to the Relaxed Free Plan 2.
You can make that change from the Upgrades section of your account. You could also switch to any other plan available for upgrade at the time of your change.
