Now that Verizon officially has unlimited data again - about 5 years after they got rid of it - all four of the major carriers now have unlimited data, but at varying prices. Sprint has decided to outline some of the reasons why their unlimited data plan is better than Verizon’s. Which isn’t a huge surprise, after all Sprint wants customers to stay with them or come to them, and not leave for a competitor, since that is how they make money after all. Of course the most obvious reason that Sprint’s plan is better (at least in their eyes) is the fact that its offering is cheaper. Coming in at $50/month (or if you have five lines, as low as $18/month since it’s $90 for two lines and the remaining three are free, for a limited time).
Sprint also outlines the fact that customers can opt for a “premium” unlimited experience, for $20/month. This gives users the ability to get unthrottled video, music and game streaming. Which would bring the price to $70, still cheaper than Verizon’s offering. Surprisingly Sprint didn’t outline their network, which they have been claiming as being within 1% of Verizon’s network as of late. Of course, Verizon has steadily called Sprint out about that claim, so perhaps that was better off being left out.
Sprint’s unlimited comes in at $50/month, T-Mobile at $70 and Verizon at $80, of course that is all with auto-pay (AT&T offers unlimited for $100/month, without auto-pay but you do need to subscribe to either U-verse or DIRECTV). However, something that Sprint did not mention here is the fact that their pricing will increase after March 31st, 2018. Going back to its original price of $60/month. With lines three through five costing $30/month. Verizon’s pricing seems to be less promotional, and still very competitive though. It’s great to see unlimited data available from all four carriers now in the US. Giving users a better way to enjoy the internet without worrying about overage fees, or using up all of their LTE data and being slowed down afterwards.
