New customers, however, must pick between two options: $19.99 per month for 2GB of combined 3G/4G data, or $49.99 per month for 6GB of combined 3G/4G data. Overage fees for both plans cost $0.05 per megabyte. Sprint will notify its mobile hotspot customers when they reach 75%, 90%, and 100% of their monthly data limit.
