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.
