Boost Mobile to commence $50 unlimited plan
As postpaid carriers are battling out over wireless supremacy, the prepaid unlimited wars are about to get interesting in its own sphere. Starting January 22, Boost Mobile will start offering consumers a $50 per moth plan which will provide unlimited calling and texting. The new plan will rival those that are found on Leap Wireless International and MetroPCS. The advantage that Boost Mobile has over the other prepaid carriers is the fact that its network is powered by Sprint Nextel while being only $5 more than similar plans found through MetroPCS. They are known to offer the most comprehensive push to talk service in the United States. Although the iDEN network has slower mobile web speeds, Boost is intent on targeting consumers that are looking to use their phones for calls and texting. Neil Lindsay, Boost’s VP of Marketing, states that their service is cheaper than their competitors after taxes and other charges that are taken to account. In this unstable economy, the $50 per month no contract plan may seem gold to anyone.
