Sprint Unlimited 55+ for Seniors could be announced on May 18th

Sprint Unlimited 55+ for Seniors could be announced on May 18th
Last August, T-Mobile announced an unlimited plan for seniors 55 and older. A report published today says that Sprint will introduce its own unlimited plan for seniors on May 18th. Sprint is expected to call its plan Unlimited 55+. If that sounds familiar, well, it happens to be the same name as T-Mobile's plan for seniors. If you're 55 or older, Sprint will give you one line of unlimited service for $50 a month, or two lines for $70 a month. Currently, Sprint charges $60 a month for one line of unlimited service and $100 a month for two lines.

Besides the special pricing, the rest of the plan remains the same as Sprint's regular unlimited offerings. That means subscribers get unlimited talk, text and data, with video streaming at (DVD quality) 480p, music streaming at 500 kbps, and gaming streaming to 5 Mbps. With Sprint's Global Roaming service, subscribers get to text and use data in 185 countries at 2G speeds without having to pay extra. International roaming is capped at 100MB at 2G speeds, and during periods of heavy traffic, Sprint could reduce the data speeds of heavy users.

With the report today that T-Mobile and Sprint might finally announce a merger next week, Sprint could decide not to announce this. On the other hand, considering the regulatory approvals that such a transaction would require, a deal between the two carriers could take up to a year to close. With that in mind, the nation's fourth largest carrier might decide to go ahead and offer its version of Unlimited 55+ next month.

I just got this plan on T-mobile before the price increase. 2 unlimited lines for $60 a month was too good to pass up. I was with Sprint for 12 years, and Verizon for 14 years before that. Sprint/Softbank has not made ONE good decision. EVERY move had been a failure. I wanted off of that sinking ship.

T-Mobile will be sure to whip them in line soon as the merger is through.

Verizon was just a name change. I think if turboC6 mentioned the original company's name, the majority would not recognize it. Then again I don't know any senior citizen that would use a handle like turboC6 LOL. verizon.com/about/our-company/history-and-timeline​/1999-1900

Verizon was formerly known as Bell Atlantic. I was an outside sales person for them while in college at the time. I was the only college kid I knew with a cell phone. LOL Back then, I banged many sloots like your mom. Sometimes the condoms broke. Is that you. son? If so, I'm sorry I wasn't there to give you the beatings you deserved to prevent you from becoming the punk you are. C6 is a 2005-2013 Corvette, and I added a twin turbo system to mine. I never said I was a senior..

I used to be with Verizon before it was Verizon. Back in the day, at least in the Northeast, used to go by the name Bell Atlantic. Perhaps is what he/she trying to say.

Plonko- . I started as a Bell Atlantic BtoB sales rep in 1992. They're called Verizon today. You're a typical little millenial punk who needs his teeth kicked in.

What senior citizen will use data? Anyone over 65 ain't using a smartphone...
