Sprint subsidiary Boost Mobile announced today that they are going to begin offering zero-rated music streaming on their service, very similarly to what is offered by T-Mobile’s Music Freedom program. In addition, Boost is announcing increased high-speed data allotments for all of their data plans!
This isn’t the first time that a Sprint subsidiary would be making this type of move. Virgin made a similar announcement a couple of months ago. Boost is going to join the club and will offer zero-rating with the following services:
- iHeart Radio
- Slacker Radio
- Samsung Milk Music
During their original announcement, Virgin only had the former three services and today will also be adding Milk Music and 8Tracks to the mix to match their orange-colored sibling. The data plans for Boost are also increasing so that the 2GB plan will now offer 5GB and the 5GB plan will be bumped up to 8GB. You can also get a $5 credit if you sign up for “auto re-boost.” Additionally, you can get 500MB of extra high-speed monthly data after every 3 on-time payments up to 3GB additional (18 months of on-time payments) with their growing data program.
All of today’s announcements sound like a great deal for anyone who is willing to get on board with the nation’s number four carrier and it appears as though they’re taking suggestions for what the next services to be added should be, so be on the lookout for that! As I said when Virgin originally announced this move, hopefully we’ll see big-brother Sprint start making these consumer-friendly policies as well!
