Sprint on Friday debuted a variation on its recently introduced Unlimited Freedom rate plan. Priced at $80 per month, the new Unlimited Freedom Premium option gives customers unlimited calls, messages, and data, including high-definition video streaming.
The move likely comes as a direct result of customers who liked the idea of the Unlimited Freedom’s all-inclusive rate plan but not its data streaming. The $60 option does give consumers all you can eat talk, text, and data, but the video was dialed back to 480p.
Music streaming and gaming gets better with the Premium version, too. HD music streaming can be had at rates of up to 1.5 Mbps while streaming games clocks speeds up to 8 Mbps. This is considerably better than the normal Unlimited Freedom plan which offers 500kbps and 2Mbps, respectively.
Sprint’s Unlimited Freedom Premium cost $80 for one line of service and $140 for two lines. For a limited time, customers who sign up for the Unlimited Freedom plan will be upgraded to the Premium class at no additional cost. The promotion runs until October 31, 2016.
