Boost Mobile, the prepaid brand of Sprint Corporation, has announced the launch of a new promotional offer for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile subscribers. As part of the plan, people switching over to Boost Mobile from either of the three aforementioned carriers will get up to half off their monthly bills thanks to the new time-limited offer on the company's family plans, which come with 10 GB of LTE data per line. Boost's family plans start at $60 per month for two lines and go up to $110 for four connections. The company is also offering a free smartphone each for every single line that a customer brings over from any of the three competing carriers. The plans are live as of Thursday, March 3rd, and will continue till Tuesday, April 5th.
Coming to some of the options available for users looking to take advantage of the free smartphone offer, Boost Mobile says it will make available a number of devices from Alcatel OneTouch, Motorola, LG and ZTE. The list includes a bunch of entry-level handsets like the Alcatel OneTouch Elevate, the Motorola Moto E, the LG Tribute, LG Tribute 2 and ZTE Speed. For people not interested in the free smartphones, Boost says it will offer a '$50 instant device discount', which will also be applicable on a per line basis just like the free smartphone offer. Meaning, those opting for four lines will be eligible for up to $200 in device discount on the four smartphones. This particular promo was introduced back in January and will also continue until the fifth of next month. All offers are available online as well as in participating Boost stores nationwide.
On the occasion of the introduction of the new offers, Ms. Angela Ritters, vice president at Boost Mobile, issued the following statement: "Boost Mobile's family plans provide a superior alternative for T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon customers looking for a better family value. We can help them save up to 50 percent off their monthly plan and get up to four free phones. Now is the time to make a move". Boost Mobile is a prepaid carrier that operates on Sprint's network and competes in the market with the likes of Cricket Wireless and Straight Talk, alongside T-Mobile's MetroPCS and AT&T's GoPhone.
