  • BIO: ConnectED Mobile works with the nation’s largest 4G LTE mobile provider to offer family plan pricing directly to individuals. We primarily serve international students, who arrive in the US without families with whom to access a family plan, nor the social security numbers and US credit history required for postpaid plans. Plans start at $22.99/month and include unlimited 3G data in the US and 2G data abroad. Since launching in 2019, ConnectED Mobile now serves students at over 20+ leading universities.
