Sprint has offered an unlimited plan for awhile, but there have been some big caveats in place.
Now the biggest one, a limit to the HD quality subscribers were allowed to stream, has been lifted, and mobile hotspot data is also getting an improvement as well. The changes to Sprint’s unlimited access come on the heels of not only Verizon Unlimited being unveiled, but also T-Mobile making changes to its own offerings.
As for Sprint, the changes go into effect on February 17. With them, Sprint subscribers will be able to stream an unlimited amount of 1080p HD content, and they will also be able to use 10GB of high-speed mobile hotspot data per month. Speeds will get dropped to 2G if they go over that monthly allotment. The price for this is $65 per month, or $60 per month if the subscriber signs up for Auto Pay.
That’s for existing customers. Things get a tad better for those who switch over to the Now Network.
In that case, new subscribers will only pay $50 per month if they sign up for Auto Pay right from the start. A second line will cost $40 per month, with lines three through five being free until March 31, 2018. After that date, the lines will cost $60 for the first line, $40 per month for the second line, and each subsequent line after that will cost $30 per month.
In addition to all that, Sprint is also offering a limited-time iPhone 7 deal. Those who switch to Sprint and pick up an iPhone 7 can pay $0 per month for 18 months, as long as they trade in a qualifying device. Here’s how that works, per Sprint’s announcement:
“After $27.09 (iPhone 7 32GB) monthly service credit with 18-mo lease for well-qualified customer with port and new-line activation upgrade and trade-in of: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, Samsung GS7, GS7 edge, GS6, GS6 edge, Note 5, LG V20, G5, Moto Droid 2. Credit applied within two invoices after trade-in received. Early termination of lease/service results in full balance due. Offer not available everywhere.”
It’s likely that the “Moto Droid 2” is probably the Moto Z Droid.
