Specifically, Sprint introduced a new top-tier unlimited plan that's more expensive than its current offering, as well as a "basic" plan that costs roughly the same as the carrier's Unlimited Freedom plan.
Along with Hulu, Unlimited Plus includes the Tidal music service, with music streaming up to 1.5 Mbps.
$50/mo for line 1, $30/mo for line 2 and $10/mo/line for lines 3 - 5.
Sprint is hardly the first carrier to divvy up its unlimited plans into multiple tiers. Unlimited Plus also supports full HD streaming for video. Sprint charges $70 for a single line of Unlimited Plus, with a second line costing $50, and lines three, four and five costing $30 each. In an email to The Verge, a Sprint spokesperson claimed that if a customer brings in their own device or buys a new one, Sprint will reduce the Plus plan's monthly single-line price to $50. "They have different needs". In addition to unlimited data, talk and text at a great price, wireless users are looking for additional features like HD streaming and entertainment services, all on a reliable network. "Sprint seems to get that".
To celebrate the launch of these unbelievable plans, Sprint is offering an incredible limited-time promotion for Unlimited Plus. That means a family of four would pay $140 a month, a $20 discount from what four lines of unlimited data used to cost at Sprint. With this plan, you get all of the premium features you might expect, as you'll be forking over a bit more money on a monthly basis to get them. Instead, Sprint is running a promo for 5-lines and is doing an average price-per-line of $42. Hulu is included, but not Tidal. In Mexico and Canada, enjoy unlimited talk and text and 10GB of 4G LTE data. You get unlimited talk, text, and data, 480p video streaming, 500MB of hotspot, 5GB of roaming data to Canada/Mexico, and a Hulu limited commercials account.
Even better news for Sprint customers: the carrier is raising the threshold at which it reserves the right to slow down speeds for unlimited subscribers who use a lot of data during a billing period. Stay connected with 500MB mobile hotspot. You'll get 10GB of LTE data when you travel to Canada and Mexico, plus 15GB of LTE hotspot data.
Sprint salutes veterans, active duty and reserves of the US armed forces with our Unlimited Military plan. The military plan is comparable to the unlimited basic plan but costs only $100 for four lines. Good only on July 13. If you bring over five lines, that cost per-line goes down to $32. "Add all of this up and there's literally never been a better time to switch to Sprint", said Draper.
