Sprint Unlimited Plan Improved

Hide Caption Show Caption Right-click and choose

AT&T's move comes a week after Verizon (vz) surprised the industry by offering an unlimited plan starting at $80 for one line, after years of downplaying the need for such plans. There is no new discount for subscribers who have unlimited plans that had been tagged to DirecTV or U-verse.

AT&T on Thursday announced an expanded version of its unlimited data plan that does not require an additional subscription to a pay-TV service. While that data allotment lasts, users can enjoy the full measure of Verizon's LTE speeds in their area on other phones, tablets, laptops, or whatever other devices they may decide to share internet with.

Sprint on Thursday announced a new unlimited plan that includes HD-quality video streams and 10GB of mobile hotspot data.

- On Monday, Verizon released their new Unlimited service and when we put up an article about it, you had a lot to say!

The single-line price is higher than AT&T's competitors are charging, and the plan has some limits despite its name.

You can't ever read the fine print too carefully, and that is also the case with Verizon's new unlimited data plan. Sprint and T-Mobile are cheaper. T-Mobile will now stream unlimited video at a minimum 720p as opposed to the YouTube quality 480p it was streaming unlimited video at, on its Binge On plans.

Finally, it's worth noting that after 22GB of usage, AT&T Unlimited Plan customers may have their speeds slowed during times of network congestion.

That's right - if you switch to take advantage of this new deal, Sprint will let you lease the new iPhone 7 for $0 monthly payments for 18 months. The new offer will get you up to five lines now for only $90, but that plan only lasts until March of 2018. That T-Mobile plan is $70 for one line, $100 for two lines or $160 for four lines, with taxes and fees included.
