Sprint Offers $60 Unlimited Data Plan
After unveiling the company's new cheaper shared data options earlier this week
, Sprint has also now unveiled a new, cheaper plan for single lines. According to the Sprint announcement
, users this week can now get unlimited data, voice and text for $60 a month. The plan is only available to new users if you're currently not under contract, have purchased a phone using Easy Pay installment billing or add an additional line of service. Sprint claims the new option can save users $480 over two years against T-Mobile’s $80 everyday pricing. Fierce Wireless
notes that Sprint is making some changes to the company's promise of guaranteed unlimited voice, texting and data:
Sprint is discontinuing its offer of guaranteed unlimited voice, texting and data for the life of the phone line for new customers, and is limiting the options for customers who have the guarantee now. The carrier disclosed the change in conjunction with its announcement of a new unlimited talk, text and data plan for individuals that costs $60 per month.
Sprint instituted the guarantee in July 2013 shortly after SoftBank finalized its deal to buy 80 percent of Sprint. The Unlimited Guarantee was given to new customers who signed up for service as well as existing customers who switched to Sprint's Unlimited, My Way or My All-in plans.
The price cuts come under the watch of new Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, who wants to be a bit more aggressive on price than former boss Dan Hesse.
