Sprint today announced a new rate plan for customers who need the most basic amount of data per month. Called the Starter Unlimited Data Plan, the $20 monthly option gives customers 1GB of 4G LTE data per month.
Should a customer go over the allotted data, Sprint will let them continue on with services at 2G speeds. The 2G data is unlimited for the remainder of the bill cycle.
It is worth noting that this plan does not give customers any talking or texting; it is simply a data plan. If you’re looking for the typical phone services, Sprint will gladly sell you that for $20 per month. In essence $40 gives customers unlimited talk text and 1GB of high speed data each month. Sprint will sell additional data at a rate of $15 per gigabyte if a customer needs more data in any bill cycle.
In addition to the new rate plan, Sprint has raised the price of its unlimited high speed data plan to $70 per month. The plan includes 3 gigabytes of mobile hotspot data and does include unlimited talk text and high speed internet speeds. Additional lines with the same package are priced at $60 per month with a limit of ten per account.
These new rate plans take effect starting October 30th.
