Sprint Touts Unlimited Plan Promo
Sprint today rolled out a new promotion meant to compete with recent offerings from its competitors. The promo is for new customers only and includes unlimited data, talk, and text for $55 per month for a single line. Customers who subscribe to auto-pay can receive a $5-per-month discount, which drops the plan cost to $50. (Sprint is advertising the plan as "unlimited data, talk and text for just $50 per month.") Sprint says customers can score unlimited data, talk, and text for two lines for $90, with additional lines thereafter costing $30 each. According to the fine print, the $55 price is available through March 31, 2018, after which it will increase to $60. Moreover, Sprint says video will be optimized at 480p resolution, music will be capped at 500 Kbps, and gaming will be limited to streams of 2 Mbps. Customers on this plan may be throttled when the network is congested. Electronic billing is required. The plan cost does not include taxes and fees, which are extra. The offer is available from today, Jan. 27, through Monday, Jan. 30.
