With smartphones and wireless plans now, data is easily the most used part of those plans for the majority of consumers, ranging from activities like streaming music and videos, to web browsing and games, and most likely tons and tons of emails. While these things change from user to user as everyone consumes different amounts of data and does different things, not everyone is on the right plan for them and may have too little or too much data every month. Boost Mobile is keen on offering customers the right amounts of data fit for their lifestyle and has changed up their Data Boost plans to give customers exactly how much data it is they need.
The new Data Boost plans have been updated so that new and existing subscribers of Boost Mobile will get some of the most competitive rates on wireless plans that include data usage, while also dropping the rates from the existing prices so that consumers get more data while also saving more money. Sprint and Boost have asked consumers "what's your number?" in an attempt to assist them in finding out just how much data they eat up on a monthly basis. If you're unsure just how much you use you can check an estimate by going to the Sprint data calculator and dragging the slider bars to best match how much of each data related activity you think you use on a given monthly time frame. I personally seem to be using about 8.6GB a month, although much of that is through WiFi while I'm at home.
The new Data Boost plans come with Double the Data, and start at just $35 a month($40 prior to the refresh)which gives users 1GB of data as opposed to the previous 512MB. The next plan up bumps subscribers from 2.5GB to 5GB of data a month for just $45 instead of $50, and lastly users can choose the $55 plan which use to be $60, and will now get 10GB of data a month instead of 5GB. That's a whole lot of data for a fairly competitive low monthly cost. It certainly makes you think about whether or not the wireless plan you're on is the right one.
