Unlimited Data Plans Are Alive and Well at Sprint, T
Feb 12 2017
That $90 pricing will get you unlimited data, calling and texting for each line. The deal, which runs until the end of March 2018, offers "customers enormous savings over T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon" according to the press release. So, if you have five people on your plan, your bill will go up $100 a month, which is not insignificant. That means you could get up to five lines of unlimited data, talk, and text for $90 a month - really, the more the merrier. All the lines will have unlimited data, though Sprint notes "Data depriortizatioan applies during times of congestion", meaning they are subject to being throttled. Lines three, four and five are free.
Sprint's doing its best to lure in customers with a new plan that seems pretty enticing, especially if you're paying for several lines as part of a family plan. In short, Sprint has made the third, fourth and fifth lines free to add to the plan, doing away with the extra $30 that was needed for each additional line. Sprint's new deal, which runs for a limited amount of time, is the latest in an intense competition between America's four national carriers.
A report this week put Sprint's network firmly in last place among national carriers. That's right, it goes from $90 per month up to $190 per month for a family of five. It also offered a $90 a month unlimited plan for two lines, with each additional line costing $30 a month. T-Mobile recently revamped its pricing to include taxes and fees, but AT&T and Verizon do not.
To take advantage of the offer, customers need only to sign up for the plan with Sprint via AutoPay and decide whether it's just one line they want, or the whole family they need to connect.
