Sprint is offering consumers who switch over to its service an unlimited data plan for $15 a month. The too-good-to-be-true deal will only be available for a limited time only, and it comes many restrictions.
Normally Sprint’s unlimited data runs customers $60 a month, but folks who switch over will get it for just $15 a month signifying a savings of $45. That’s nothing to scoff at, but the deal isn’t as unlimited as you might think. The uber cheap plan comes with a 480p video streaming restriction, the possibility of speeds being slowed down when the network is congested, and doesn’t offer any hotspot feature at all.
The main selling points of the plan is offering unlimited talk, text and data (beyond the restrictions laid out) for just $15, though that doesn’t include fees and taxes that will be added to the plan. Even though the restrictions are annoying, it is worth considering given how much customers could end up saving.
To take advantage of the plan, consumers have to switch over to Sprint from another carrier. The $15 unlimited data plan is only available online or through your phone; Sprint retail stores aren’t able to hand out the deal. New customers will also have to set up autopay to qualify for the reduced price.
Sprint has been clear about stating the plan will only be available for a number of weeks, so if it’s something you’re considering, better jump on it sooner rather than later—it might not be around for much longer. It’s not entirely clear, but it’s presumed customers who take advantage of the deal will keep the reduced price as long as they want.
The new $15 unlimited plan by Sprint will be available to consumers starting June 8.
