Sprint Prepaid adds unlimited data to all hard capped data plans
Sprint owned Sprint Prepaid has improved its monthly plans. Just like H20 Wireless recently and GoPhone and Page Plus Cellular before them, Sprint Prepaid adds unlimited data to plans that were including hard capped data allotments. The $35, $45 and $55 monthly plans that used to include 1GB, 3GB and 6GB of fast hard capped data, respectively now come with unlimited data with first 1GB, 3GB and 6GB at high speeds. When high speed data allotment is reached in a month, Sprint Prepaid throttles data to 2G speeds or around 128 Kbps until the next billing cycle just as with Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, also Sprint’s prepaid brands.
In addition to unlimited data with high speed (4G LTE) allotments, Sprint Prepaid plans offer unlimited talk and text plus 50 voice roaming minutes. The plans are:
- $35 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 1GB at high speeds
- $45 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 3GB at high speeds
- $55 plan – unlimited talk, text and data with first 6GB at high speeds
It’s always nice to have access to data throughout the whole month instead of being deprived of it at some point during a month. However, comparing to its sister companies Boost and Virgin Mobile, Sprint Prepaid still offers 2GB less of high speed data on the $55 plan than Virgin (other plans match), while Boost has exceeded all Sprint Prepaid’s and Virgin’s high speed data allotments; Boost’s growing data $35/2GB ($30 with auto pay) plan, $45/5GB and $60/unlimited 4G LTE data plan vs. SP’s $35/1GB, $45/3GB and $55/6GB plan. Still, Sprint Prepaid plans offer voice roaming with all plans and mobile hotspot is included as opposed to Virgin and Boost plans, where sharing already-paid-for data among other devices is charged additionally.
