Prepaid mobile provider Boost Mobile on Thursday released the first of several new plans that will debut this holiday season under the name Carrier Crusher. The plans are aimed at people currently paying for more data than they use.

Boost is offering two plans that require a yearly payment: unlimited talk and text with 1GB of data a month for $100, and 15GB of data a month for $240 annually. If you need to pay monthly, the company is offering 5GB of data a month with unlimited talk and text for $25 and 2GB of data for $15. You can view the deals at Boost Mobile's website.

The plans are targeted at the 85% of Americans who use less than 10GB of data each month, the company said in a press release Thursday.

Dish, which operates Boost Mobile, didn't immediately announce when other Carrier Crusher plans would be available.
