Boost Intros New, Cheaper Plan Options
Boost has added three new entry-level plans for those on a budget and/or with limited mobile data needs. They are: $10 for 1 GB of high-speed data, $15 for 2 GB, and $25 for 5 GB. All offer unlimited talk and text. The company is also launching new high-speed data add-on packages, which can be one-time or recurring. They run $5/GB, available in 1 or 2 GB. The three new base plans join the company's $35 and $45 plans announced a month ago, which offer 10 and 15 GB high-speed data, respectively. The $45 "$hrink-It!" plan can be discounted down to $35 after six on-time payments. The company also offers "unlimited" data plans for $50–60/month, offering 35 GB of high-speed data and varying amounts of mobile hotspot data. Only the $60 plan allows HD video streaming. Boost was recently acquired by Dish Network. All of the new plans run on T-Mobile's network, which Boost refers to as their "Expanded Data Network". Other plans are also still available that run on the legacy Boost/Sprint network, which Boost refers to as their "Nationwide Network". Those plans generally offer a lesser value. Dish is encouraging new and existing customers to move to the "Expanded" (T-Mobile) network.
