Sprint slashes its family plan price to $150 with four lines of unlimited talk, text, and data

Like free stuff? Sprint is giving customers who sign up for a family plan the fourth line for free. The carrier announced that beginning Friday, February 12, families will receive four lines of talk, text, and unlimited data for just $37.50 per line. That means that a family of four would pay just $150 each month.

For those whose families include more than four people, Sprint has another deal, which will ensure that each additional line after the fourth is just $30 extra. Anyone who signs up for the deal will also get 3GB of mobile hotspot access every month and Sprint Global Roaming, which gives users unlimited 2G data and texts in some countries. It’s unknown how long the deal will last.

“Sprint is going to continue to offer the best value for unlimited plans for our customers,” said Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO in a prepared statement. “We live in a world where everyone wants to be able to download and stream video and music and manage their social media without having to worry about data overages. With the Sprint LTE Network delivering faster download speeds than our competitors and our best prices on unlimited plans, now is the perfect time to join the millions who have already switched to Sprint.”

Of course, by Sprint’s own admission, its prices are only equal to those of T-Mobile, which also offers four lines for $150. The only way for Sprint to win a pricing war against the Un-carrier is if you’re paying for your line and your line only. In that case, an unlimited plan with Sprint will set you back $75 a month, whereas T-Mobile will ask for $95. Sprint’s unlimited four-person family plan, however, is cheaper than AT&T’s offer. Verizon doesn’t even offer unlimited data anymore, which makes it hard to compare pricing between its deals and Sprint’s new offer.
