Sprint today announced the Starter Unlimited Data Plan, that will give you unlimited data for only $20 a month. There is one caveat though, the plan gives you just 1GB of high speed data. Unless you don't mind watching your data speed change from cheetah to snail after an hour or two of use every month, this might not be the plan for you. Once the 1GB of high-speed service is consumed, subscribers receive unlimited 2GB data. Additional high-speed data can be purchased.
The plan requires subscribers to add unlimited talk and text for another $20 per month (which includes Sprint Global Roaming). So the bottom line is that you are getting unlimited talk, text, Sprint Data Roaming, 1GB of 4G LTE data and unlimited 2G data, for $40 a month. The plan will be offered starting tomorrow.
"Our Starter Unlimited Data Plan is the most affordable data plan available at any national carrier. Our customers no longer have to worry about being surprised by costly data charges. We offer our Starter Unlimited Data Plan with 1GB of high-speed data and then unlimited data at 2G speeds. At any time if they need more data, customers can easily add it to their plan."-Marcelo Claure, CEO, Sprint
At the same time, Sprint has announced a $70 Unlimited High-Speed Data Plan that offers 3GB of mobile hotspot usage each month. This plan includes unlimited talk, text and Sprint Global Roaming. Additional lines will cost $60 each with a limit of 10 lines.
