With the latest launch of Lyca Mobile USA, and a unlikely competitor, Ultra Mobile, another T-Mobile MVNO, we have seen allot of buzz around Lyca vs Ultra…

Key differentiators:

  • Ultra has unlimited global included text on all plans. Lyca is 4 cents per SMS for global
  • Lyca is offering international as a promo and to only 50 countries. Also 90% are landline online. Ultra includes international as standard on its $39-$59 plans and they include everywhere in the world. (194 countries, 4 continents – not just the less expensive destinations)
  • We have Call Me Free, Free 411, and 3 Way calling. Lyca does not have the first and makes no mention of the other two.
  • Our data is better at the $49-$59 price points.
  • We have a lower priced introductory plan that gives you unlimited global text and call me free plus 4G data at $29.
