Sprint adds an Unlimited plan without high-resolution video

  • Sprint adds an Unlimited plan without high-resolution video

The one simple all-you-can-eat Sprint Unlimited Freedom plan is now phased out and Sprint is replacing it with two new unlimited plans that are more complicated and a bit more expensive.

Naturally, each of these plans comes with unlimited talk and text. Sprint customers will experience the Network Built for Unlimited at the BEST Price.5 With more mobile broadband spectrum capacity than any US carrier, Sprint's network is built to meet customers' growing demand for data.

A single line of Unlimited Basic costs $60 a month, the same as Sprint's previous unlimited plan.

However, that promotional price is scheduled to rise in a year's time to $160 per month for four lines.

What do you get for that money?


Although consumers no longer get cut off or have to pay expensive overage charges when they run through a monthly data allowance, they face an increasing array of restrictions and conditions on all but the most expensive unlimited plans, including slowed download speeds. The over 55 plan has fewer features but costs only $50 for one line and $70 for two lines. That means a family of four pays $180 a month. You get subscriptions to Hulu and Tidal for your troubles as well, which helps sweeten the pot a little. And video streaming is capped at 1080p HD. You'll get 10GB of LTE data when you travel to Canada and Mexico, plus 15GB of LTE hotspot data. Both Plus and Basic plans are available to existing customers. Lines 3 through 5 cost $30 each.

Sprint is altering its current "one unlimited plan" structure to feature two unlimited plans. This is similar to its rivals' unlimited plans.

Meanwhile, the Unlimited Basic plan trims down the features and the cost.

The plan starts at $60 per month for the first line. Verizon introduced the same flexibility recently when it reshuffled its unlimited offerings.

Sprint now joins the other three major American mobile carriers in offering multiple "unlimited" plans, that actually have definable limits. That level is now 50GB for all unlimited plans; previously, using 23GB in a month could have triggered a slowdown. First up is what Sprint calls "Unlimited Plus". Even T-Mobile, which offers a single T-Mobile One unlimited plan, offers add-ons for HD video streaming and worldwide travel that are essentially different plans.
