Basic Fee Volume Discount

If you have more than 100 Active or Inactive plan01s SIMs in your account, a basic fee volume discount automatically applies to the SIM card daily basic fees.

Quantity Basic Fee
First 100 Active or Inactive SIMs $0.06/day
Additional Active or Inactive SIMs above 100 $0.05/day

Basic fee volume discounts are applied progressively, so that the basic fee for the first 100 Active or Inactive SIMs in your account will be calculated at $0.06/day (per SIM), and any additional Active or Inactive SIMs will be calculated at $0.05/day.

SIMs that are in the Ready, Standby, Suspended, or Terminated status do not count towards the basic fee volume discount.

For example, if you have 300 SIMs in your account, with 250 Active or Inactive, and the remaining 50 in Ready, Standby, Suspended, or Terminated, the basic fee will be calculated as:

  • 100 Active/Inactive SIMs @ $0.06/day = $6.00/day
  • 150 Active/Inactive SIMs @ $0.05/day = $7.50/day
  • Total basic fee for 250 Active/Inactive SIMs: $13.50/day

The basic fee volume discount applies to all SIMs in your account, regardless of which country they are used in.

Data Usage Volume Discount

When using plan01s SIMs in the United States and Canada, a data usage volume discount automatically applies to the total combined data usage across all devices for each billing period.

Tier Data Usage Rate
Tier 1 First 250 MB $0.073/MB
Tier 2 250 MB – 500 MB $0.057/MB
Tier 3 500 MB – 1,000 MB $0.053/MB
Tier 4 Above 1,000 MB $0.047/MB

Data usage volume discounts are applied progressively, so that the first 250 MB of data is billed at the Tier 1 rate, the next 250 MB (from 250 MB to 500 MB) is billed at the Tier 2 rate, the following 500 MB (from 500 MB to 1,000 MB) is billed at the Tier 3 rate, and any data usage above 1,000 MB is billed at the Tier 4 rate.

For example, if your devices consume a total of 2,000 MB in the United States within a billing period, the data usage fee will be calculated as:

  • Tier 1: 250 MB @ $0.073/MB = $18.25
  • Tier 2: 250 MB @ $0.057/MB = $14.25
  • Tier 3: 500 MB @ $0.053/MB = $26.50
  • Tier 4: 1,000 MB @ $0.057/MB = $47.00
  • Total charge for 2,000 MB = $106.00

If you have devices in both the United States and Canada, the volume discount will apply to each country, separately. In other words, a volume discount will be calculated according to the total combined data usage in the United States, and a separate volume discount will be calculated accordingly for Canada.

The total combined data usage will follow the same billing unit rounding above.
