Cricket updated its rate plans on Friday to increase the amount of 4G LTE data it'll provide its prepaid customers.

The plans span $35 per month at the low end to $60 a month for the highest bucket of data. All plans include unlimited talk and text in addition to the capped data allotment. You can get the lowest rates per category by signing up for auto-pay, a move that will knock $5 off your monthly bill.

Cricket is also introducing a brand new rate plan for the heaviest data users. Called the Advanced plan, this one includes 20GB for $60 a month, or $55 with the Auto Pay benefit. You can learn more at
