Sprint has refreshed the plans available to customers wishing to add the mobile hotspot feature to their smartphone or tablet. First, Sprint is "expiring" the 5GB for $29.99 monthly option. Existing customers with this plan can keep it as long as they don't cancel their service. 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.

Nearly twice the cost?

Mobile Hotspot should be free to those who already pay for unlimited data, but Sprint almost doubled the price. I am disappointed. Luckily, I don't need it.
Nothing in life is free..No one will be unlimited in 2 years..
yeah, and data should be unlimited on ALL carriers. But is it? NO. At least now the pricing is inline with their standalone hotspot device plans. From a sales prespective, a little pricing consistancy is always good for preventing customer confusion....
