Sprint is making some changes to its monthly tethering plans
. The 5GB plan for $29.99 a month has been eliminated, although those currently using the plan are grandfathered until service is canceled. Sprint has two new choices for its customers, a 2GB plan for $19.99 per month and a 6GB deal for $49.99 each month. Both plans cover 3G/4G service. For those who sign up to receive them, Sprint will now send out notifications to its mobile hotspot customers when they reach 75%, 90% and 100% of their monthly on-network data limit. This will help customers do a better job of managing their mobile hotspot use.
When a customer receives a notice that he has used 100% of his monthly data allowance for tethering
, the customer will have the choice of having the tethering service suspended until the next billing cycle starts, or pay the overage rates. Reminders will be sent out at 20% increments above the customer's monthly data limit. Overages are billed at 5 cents/MB for on-network data use or 25 cents/MB for off-network data use.
