Sprint fires back with $60 Unlimited Data plan

Sprint on Monday announced its Family Share Pack plan, an options that allows for shared plans with up to 20GB of 4G LTE data. What’s more, a limited time promotion saw the carrier discounting things to $100 and tossing in 2GB of extra data per line.

Sprint today is announcing a new take on its Unlimited Plan. Called the $60 Unlimited Plan it’s exactly that. Users, both new and existing, can receive unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data for $60 per month well, exactly what it sounds like.

In order to take advantage of the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan, you’ll need to bring your own device or finance one through Sprint Easy Pay. Alternately, you can also pay full price for the device up front.

It’s worth noting the small print: To improve data experience for the majority of users, throughput may be limited, varied or reduced on the network. Sprint may terminate service if off-network roaming usage in a month exceeds: 800 min. or a majority of min.; or 100MB.

Nevertheless, this likely doesn’t affect the average smartphone user and should not prove to be an issue. The new rate plan takes effect on Friday, August 22.
