In what seems to be an ongoing spat between carriers Verizon Wireless and Sprint over who has the better unlimited data plan offering, Sprint just raised the bar. Earlier today, Sprint announced that they have added HD video onto their unlimited data plan offering.
According to Sprint's announcement , customers who sign up for its unlimited data plan will be able to enjoy HD video streaming as much as they want to. The plan also includes 10GB of LTE mobile hotspot data that new subscribers can take advantage of.
Prior to this announcement, the third largest carrier in the country had already unveiled their new unlimited plan which costs only $50 per month for a single line. An additional line means an extra $40 per month fee, while the third and fourth lines can be added for free. So this means that an account with four lines will only cost $22.50 per line.
Now that this plan includes HD video, subscribers no longer have to pay $55 or $75 per month for adding HD video quality. Though there is a fine print that shares video data is subject to deprioritization during network congestion periods. Apart from offering HD video, Sprint is offering a free iPhone 7 for 18 months by trading in a relatively new device.
Unfortunately, this sweet deal from Sprint is only available until March 1, 2018. After this date, the price of the plan will increase to $60 per month for the first line, $40 per month for the second line, and $30 per month for the third and fourth line. These prices already include the $5 per month Auto Pay discount.
Sprint's announcement comes after Verizon decided to release its first unlimited data plan with HD video for a price of $80 per month for the first customer. Additional lines after this line cost $45 per month. Both Sprint and T-Mobile have retaliated by releasing their own unlimited plans with HD video at a cheaper price, and AT&T has also decided to join in on the fun. With the ongoing rivalry between these carriers, the only thing left is for the customer to choose the one he trusts and compare the unlimited plan they offer to see which one will best benefit him.
