Prepaid customers on Sprint are getting some changes that more closely reflect the way Sprint’s MVNOs handle prepaid wireless services, at least on the price point side of things. Today Sprint announced that they will be offering three sets of prices for their unlimited offerings on no contract prepaid, including plans that cost $35, $45, and $55 respectively depending on what the customers needs are for data allotments. Sprint mentions that all three price points include 3G and 4G data, whether a customer gets those data speeds though will depend on if they have a compatible device and if they live in an area where the towers are emitting those speeds.
Prepaid as an option for wireless services is a growing trend and Sprint has taken notice of that, and with all the other changes that they have been making to their brand after new CEO Marcelo Claure has taken over, Sprint’s Prepaid seems like the next likely place to receive some revisions. Sprint believes that this will now give their prepaid customers a more flexible set of options to choose the best plan that works for them. The starting plan which will end up costing customers the low cost of $35 a month with no contract includes unlimited talk and text with 1GB of 3G/4G data. Bumping up to the middle plan will set customers back $45 a month and give them unlimited talk and text with 3GB of 3G/4G data, and lastly the third plan will cost $55 a month and give customers unlimited talk and text and 6GB of 3G/4G data. As stated above since these are Sprint prepaid plans they come with no contract.
These new plans are stated as mirroring those offered by Boost and Virgin Mobile, both Sprint’s MVNO carriers that only offer monthly plans with no contract and operate completely with prepaid services. All three of these price plans are available as of now so if you were planning on setting up prepaid services through Sprint’s networks, you’ll have your choice of three different Unlimited options all based off of how much high speed data you’ll need when not on a WiFi connection.
