Sprint's $50 Unlimited Freedom plan will be available through mid 2018

Sprint today announced that it will continue offering its Unlimited Freedom plan for only $50 per month until mid 2018, while ditching other rate plan offers. This will be available for new customers between April 7 (tomorrow) and June 30, 2018 (next year).

For a $50 monthly fee, Sprint is giving you unlimited data, talk and text, plus 10 GB per month to use as mobile hotspot data. The offer is also advantageous for families: 2 lines cost $80 ($40 per line), 3 lines cost $100 ($33.3 per line), while 4 lines can be had for $120 ($30 per line).

The table included below (click to zoom in) shows the Unlimited Freedom plan compared to the unlimited plans available at Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. Unless the other US carriers start reducing their prices, Sprint's plan is obviously the best option if you're looking to save some money and you need one or more new smartphone lines.

Sprint also announced that, as of today, it's ending its "Switch to Sprint and save 50% on Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile rates" promotion that debuted in late 2015.

The fact that the $50 Unlimited Freedom plan will live on comes as a bit of a surprise, because, last month, Sprint's Chief Financial Officer suggested that prices for unlimited data should go up. But we don't think any customer will complain about this, right?

Those 50 bucks with everything unlimited sounds good. I really have gave sprint so many chances. In Los Angeles it just doesnt work . I really wanted it to work . As of 2017 so many dead spots and no lte in many places . 3G evdo is unacceptable right now in 2017 . And bad signal and slow lte and many many dropped calls and horrible call quality . I always end up going back to tmobile . People talk trash about tmobile but it sure as hell works better and is more reliable in everything. Faster lte no dropped calls and more lte in places. and when theres no lte hspa is much faster than sprints evdo And no dropped calls at all and better call quality .

Yeah with no clue what your bill will rise to after the deal is up isn't appealing to me at all. I much prefer being grandfathered in with T-mobile

The savings are only good for ~14 months when the price goes up. I dislike Sprint acting like a cable/broadband provider upping the price after a year. Will the price keep going up?

How is it unlimited if there is data cap/ throttling?

Well. You see Unlimited is a unit for measuring Quantity and not Speed. They say you have Unlimited Data, and not Unlimited speed. It really is basic reading comprehension. Everyone assumes Unlimited Data is the same as Unlimited Data Speeds when its not and never has been.

Agreed, Unlimited is you can gobble as much data as you want. This comes at a cost to speed as you approach the threshold of too much to the carrier.

*includes hidden fees Only $25 per month per line access fee for discounted phones. That's not all folks! If you purchase your phone out right, that access fee is reduced to $15! Add that to your ads Sprint. Sprint can legally say they have a free unlimited data plan, but it includes a $200 access fee per line.
