Sprint Intros 2GB Plan for Those Not Interested in Unlimited Data
Sprint recently added a low-cost 2 GB service plan to its offering. The plan costs $45 per month for a single line ($40 with autopay) and includes unlimited talk and text and 2 GB of data. Sprint says it will throttle users of this plan down to 2G speeds if they exceed the monthly limit. This lower-cost plan may be appealing to people who don't want or need Sprint's $60 unlimited plan, which Sprint claims has attracted more than 90% of its postpaid customers. In a statement provided to Fierce Wireless, Sprint said, "There is a subset of our customers who would like a plan that is a little more affordable and hence we are offering in addition to unlimited, a 2 GB plan for $40 (with autopay). As you’ve probably seen, this plan is not being advertised because our main focus is, and will remain, unlimited. This is what customers really want." The new 2 GB offering is already available from Sprint's web site.

Not Interested in Unlimited Data
When Sprint can boast that without roaming that their voice and/or data footprint without roaming finally rivals AT&T or Verizon, then I would consider a look at becoming a post-paid customer.
