Sprint pitchman Paul Marcarelli has two new unlimited data plans to talk up. Sprint

But rather than sit and wait for regulatory approval, Sprint is rolling out some changes to its current unlimited plan to make it worse, or more expensive, depending on which option you choose.

Sprint pitchman Paul Marcarelli has two new unlimited data plans to talk up.

The one simple all-you-can-eat Sprint Unlimited Freedom plan is now phased out and Sprint is replacing it with two new unlimited plans that are more complicated and a bit more expensive. With Basic, customers can get five lines of Unlimited for $32 per month per line.8 Unlimited Basic includes: TV you love, with Hulu. Indeed, it will now restrict video quality to 480p and reduce LTE hotspot usage from a whopping 10GB to 500MB.

Unlimited Plus includes: TV you love, with Hulu.

The only silver lining is the volume pricing: Unlimited Freedom now works out to $36 for five lines, while Unlimited Basic is $32 per line for five lines.

There's also a freaky limited-time promo on Unlimited Plus, with prices working out to $22 per month per line for five lines provided you're not leasing a phone through Sprint.


$50/mo for line 1, $30/mo for line 2 and $10/mo/line for lines 3 - 5. In an email to The Verge, a Sprint spokesperson claimed that if a customer brings in their own device or buys a new one, Sprint will reduce the Plus plan's monthly single-line price to $50.

With the headway the T-Mobile-Sprint merger is making, one wonders why Sprint doesn't just call it a day and coast along until the deal is approved.

Also, following some of its rivals, Sprint introduced discounted plans for customers 55 and older and for military families.

For both plans, Sprint is doing something nice: it's raising its limit on unlimited data (it pains me to write that) from 23GB per month to 50GB per month, which is the same limit as T-Mobile.

Naturally, each of these plans comes with unlimited talk and text. You'll get 10GB of LTE data when you travel to Canada and Mexico, plus 15GB of LTE hotspot data.

Sprint now joins the other three major American mobile carriers in offering multiple "unlimited" plans, that actually have definable limits. In Mexico and Canada, enjoy unlimited talk and text and 5GB of 4G LTE data. Good only on July 13. If you get five lines, it's $42 per month, per line. "Add all of this up and there's literally never been a better time to switch to Sprint", said Draper.
