Are you looking to shave a few dollars off your monthly wireless bill? Boost Mobile might have exactly what you’re looking for if you don’t mind switching carriers.

Starting today, Boost Mobile will give you 10GB of high-speed data per line if you switch from AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon. Other than switching carriers, the only other caveat is that you have to sign up for a family plan of at least two lines. Plans start at $60 per month for two lines, or you can choose three or four lines for $85 and $110 per month, respectively. You’ll need to port lines over from either AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon in order to get the discounts.

The deal comes down to discounting the monthly service slightly while doubling the data. Normal monthly pricing for family plans that include 5GB of data are $70 for two lines, $95 for three lines, and $120 for four lines.

If the monthly savings isn’t enough to entice you, how about a free smartphone for each line? You can choose from either the Alcatel OneTouch Elevate, Motorola Moto E, LG Tribute, LG Tribute 2, or ZTE Speed. If you don’t fancy any of those phones, you can can opt for a $50 discount off another phone of your choice instead.

You have until April 5 to make the switch.

If you’re not familiar with Boost Mobile, it was created in 2002 as Sprint’s prepaid group. It utilizes Sprint’s network, which consists of a 4G LTE network that reaches 280 million people nationwide.

Sprint has a 50 percent off promotion as well, but it works differently. The carrier will knock 50 percent off your current AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon bill if you switch carriers.
