Sprint has announced via its customer support web site that it will institute caps on its existing unlimited 4G data plans starting in November. This change applies to all customers (no one is grandfathered in) who have mobile broadband devices such as tablets, netbooks, notebooks, USB cards, or Mobile Hotspot devices. The change does not apply to smartphone plans. Moving forward, the 3GB of 3G data with unlimited 4G plan now offers 3GB of 3G/4G data combined; the 5GB of 3G data with unlimited 4G plan now offers 5GB of 3G/4G data combined; and the 10GB of 3G data with unlimited 4G plan now offers 10GB of 3G/4G data combined per month. Overage charges cost $0.05 per megabyte for those who exceed their monthly limits. The cost of these monthly plans is not changing, but the caps go into effect during customers' first billing cycle in November.
