Just a couple months after relisting AT&T SIM cards for sale, Straight Talk has now added LTE support to its AT&T SIM card inventory and service. The new SIM cards are currently on sale for $6.99 each in both microSIM and miniSIM sizes. The addition of LTE service now means that Straight Talk is the second AT&T MVNO to offer LTE support on BYOD service, with AT&T subsidiary AIO Wireless being the first to do so earlier this year. This now means that cheap mid-range LTE compatible phones like the AT&T Lumia 900 and Pantech Discover can be used to their full potential, as well as AT&T’s iPhone 5 and forthcoming 5C/5S.
However, with the LTE support comes even more concern regarding Straight Talk’s throttling practices, as the provider still refuses to detail its data usage allowances, as more providers are willing to do and is still relying on the catch all unlimited terms which still prohibit streaming media and heavy usage, among other issues.
