Those plans largely stand as a significant price increase to Sprint's current Unlimited Freedom offer, which provides one line of service for $60 per month and, via a promotion, four lines of service for just $100 per month.
If the corporate overlords have their way, Sprint only has a few more months of existence before it's officially part of New T-Mobile. We're also offering Unlimited Basic for people who may not need all the bells and whistles but still want a high-quality wireless experience. Sprint customers will experience the Network Built for Unlimited at the BEST Price.5 With more mobile broadband spectrum capacity than any US carrier, Sprint's network is built to meet customers' growing demand for data. If customers prefer to lease a device, they get Unlimited Plus at the regular low price of $42 per month per line for five lines.
There's also a freakish limited-time promo on Unlimited Plus, with prices working out to $22 per month per line for five lines provided you're not leasing a phone through Sprint. You get subscriptions to Hulu and Tidal for your troubles as well, which helps sweeten the pot a little. Music streaming is throttled to 1.5Mbps as it always has been. Global roaming in more than 185 worldwide destinations.
How much does Unlimited Basic cost? You get unlimited talk, text, and data, 480p video streaming, 500MB of hotspot, 5GB of roaming data to Canada/Mexico, and a Hulu limited commercials account. It includes 15GB of mobile hotspot data at 4G LTE speeds, up 5GB. Streaming in SD (DVD-quality).
Unlimited Military: Designed especially for veterans, active duty and reserves of the US armed forces.
And, if you're 55 or older, Sprint offers Unlimited 55+.
During times of network congestion, users of either plan will see their data speeds restricted - but only after 50GB of data has been used in a given billing cycle.
Unlimited Plus and Unlimited Basis will become available for subscribers beginning Friday, July 13. Check with your local store for store hours.
Sprint and Verizon are both trying to market these changes as a way to give their customers more choice over what they want in their plan, and while that's fine, continuing to call them "unlimited" is a flat-out lie at this point. You can add a second line for $40 and third, fourth and fifth lines for $20 each.
