Change USFamily.Net National Pools to the new $8.99 pool

To check for $8.99 National Service plans in your city Click Here.  $8.99 is not available in every city.

For information on our new $8.99 National Pool Click Here.

The new $8.99 national pool is very similar to our old $13.99 national pool, in fact many of the numbers may be identical.  There are some minor plan differences.  Most, but not every city is available at $8.99 and the new $8.99 pool has a hard 150 hour limit.  This is not a significant change because the fraud detection system on the old usf-i pool essentially prevented reaching that limit.   The $8.99 plan is for a single city, we also have 2-city, and traveling accounts.
