Let the battle begin. Two major US wireless carriers, Sprint and T-Mobile, have just introduced competing new unlimited data options for their respective customers, especially those who are okay with the idea of watching video content at lower quality. The good news is that the carriers’ new plans are cheaper than the usual $95 per month that each mobile operator charges for unlimited data.
Are you currently subscribed to one of AT&T’s old unlimited data plans? You might want to reconsider continuing to avail of these plans beginning next year. That is because the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States is planning to increase the price of its grandfathered unlimited data plan by February of 2016.
This Halloween, Sprint has announced brand new wireless plans, and is even incorporating unlimited 2G data to its Family Share Packs. Beginning October 30th of this year, the wireless carrier is offering a new $20 plan dubbed the Sprint Starter Unlimited Data Plan, wherein subscribers will get to enjoy 1 gigabyte of LTE high speed data every month, including unlimited 2G data, plus the choice of buying more high speed data any time they like.
Sprint’s prepaid subsidiary, Boost Mobile, has just debuted new data plans. And they are generating buzz lately because of their rather unique structure. Dubbed as “Growing Data” plans, Boost Mobile’s latest offering add 500 megabytes of data to the customer’s account each time he completed three on-time payments.
So you are thinking of getting out of Sprint, but you don't want to give up the handset you purchased from this major wireless carrier? Not to worry -- Sprint happens to lease some its network to mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs). These are smaller wireless providers that make use of Sprint's network but offer significantly less expensive plans than the major carrier. Listed below are some of the MVNOs that will allow you to use your Sprint smartphone on their plans.
You want to enjoy wireless services that are free of restrictions and overage charges? Then you should get yourself an unlimited smartphone plan. But the question is: which one should you get? It depends of course on your particular needs. But if you want to know what is currently available right now, you might want to read through the rest of this post.
MetroPCS, the prepaid wireless service brand owned by T-Mobile, is launching a new promo that will give its customers unlimited calls, text messaging, and 4G LTE data for $50 a month. And they can enjoy all of these without having to sign up for a yearly contract.
But wait -- there are some caveats. First of all, subscribers must avail of the promo not later than April 5th of this year. When they do, they will be able to enjoy the promo's inclusions for an indefinite period of time.
Without much fanfare, Sprint mobile virtual network operator Virgin Mobile is recently overhauling its monthly unlimited plans, offering new options for its subscribers, especially with regards to unlimited text messaging and international rates.
With this overhaul, Virgin Mobile is now offering no less than five monthly plans for smartphones, with rates starting as low as $20.00 every month. These plans are:
Verizon was supposed to implement its new 4G network optimization policy today. The policy would call for the possible throttling down of the speeds of the carrier's heaviest data users in order to make room on the LTE network for subscribers who pay for data by the gigabyte.
Today, Sprint announced an overhaul of its cell phone plan offerings. In order to remain competitive with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile, Sprint scrapped many of their old plans and replaced them with two simple options: the Unlimited My Way Plan and the Unlimited All-In Plan.
