Even though Sprint does have Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile as its prepaid subsidiaries here in the United States, it launched its own Prepaid brand back in March. Thankfully, Sprint decided to revamp it with three new monthly plans.
The cheapest plan, $35 a month, now includes 1GB of data. Meanwhile, the $45 and $55 a month plans include 3GB and 6GB of data, respectively. All these plans include unlimited talk and text. In comparison, when the Sprint Prepaid brand launched in March, it had two plans: a $45 a month plan with unlimited talk and text but no data, and a $60 a month plan with unlimited talk and text, coupled with 2.5GB of 4G LTE data that would be throttled if you surpass the cap.
According to Sprint, the new tiered data plans “include respective 3G/4G high-speed data allotment applicable to monthly plan.” In other words, if you surpass your data allowance, data access ends. In addition, if you plan on watching videos on the go, doing so “may be limited to 3G speeds.” Not a fun prospect, seeing how notoriously horrid Sprint’s 3G speeds are, but at least the plans are affordable.
