Sprint introduces two new unlimited plans, sunsets Unlimited Freedom

Sprint adds an Unlimited plan without high-resolution video

Sprint and Verizon are both trying to market these changes as a way to give their customers more choice over what they want in their plan, and while that's fine, continuing to call them "unlimited" is a flat-out lie at this point. This plan also includes subscriptions to Hulu and TIDAL at no additional cost. It costs $70 for one line, rising to $180 for four lines. It's just a shame that unlimited plans, which were supposed to simplify the wireless industry, have done anything but. Interestingly, the carrier said that music streams are throttled to 1.5 Mbps and gaming streams are throttled to 8 Mbps, and that users who consume more than 50 GB in a month can have their speeds reduced. The second line costs $40 and the subsequent lines costs $20 a piece per month.

Sprint is altering its current "one unlimited plan" structure to feature two unlimited plans. "They have different needs". This is an improvement over Unlimited Freedom's former 23GB data soft-cap. "Sprint seems to get that".

It's worth noting that Sprint now has a promotional deal in place that could knock the cost of the Plus plan down substantially. If you bring your own phone or buy a new phone outright, Unlimited Plus is available for $22 per month per line for five lines. If customers prefer to lease a device, they get Unlimited Plus at the regular low price of $42 per month per line for five lines. Hulu is included, but not Tidal. It also comes with Hulu and 5 GB of roaming data in Canada and Mexico.

Sprint's new "Unlimited Basic" plan costs $60 per month for one line of service or $140 for four lines of service, though it streams video at 480p resolution and only includes 500 MB of personal hotspot service. Stay connected with 500MB mobile hotspot.

The other movie will be by the Christian-focused film studio, Pure Flix Entertainment, which announced its project via Twitter. Ivanhoe Pictures is also bringing the chilling horror series Ghoul to Netflix, debuting on August 24.

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. Global roaming for text and data is free for 185 destinations - travelers to Canada and Mexico will get unlimited talk, text and data with up to 5GB of LTE speeds.

Sprint salutes veterans, active duty and reserves of the USA armed forces with our Unlimited Military plan.

The only silver lining is the volume pricing: Unlimited Freedom now works out to $36 for five lines, while Unlimited Basic is $32 per line for five lines. The pricing is worse if you're a couple, however, as two lines of Unlimited Freedom costs $90, and two lines of Unlimited Basic is $100. "We're offering unbeatable value on our award-winning network".
