Sprint today introduced new Better Choice rate plans that directly target Verizon’s plans that were launched late last year.
Like Verizon’s plans, Sprint’s Better Choice shared data plans come in Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, and XX-Large versions. The difference is that Sprint’s plans offer double (or more) the data at the same price. Better Choice plans start at $30 per month for 3GB of high-speed data with the Small plan, 6GB for $45 with the Medium, 12GB for $60 with the Large, 24GB for $80 with the XL, and 40GB for $100 with the XXL plan.
With these plans, you’ll also pay a $20 per line access charge for non-discounted phones, like those on leases. Tablets will cost $10 per line, and discounted phones — those on a two-year contract — will cost $45 per line.
Sprint’s Better Choice plans also include unlimited talk and text, and after you use your high-speed data allotment, you’ll have unlimited 2G data. If you want more high-speed data, you’ll be able to buy it at a rate or $15 per gigabyte.
If you want unlimited high-speed data, Sprint is still offering its unlimited plans that start at $75 per month for a single line, $120 for two lines, $150 for three lines, $150 for four lines (the fourth line is free), and $30 for each additional line after that.
Sprint’s new plans will be available starting Friday, February 19. With six different rate plans available, most customers that are looking for a new Sprint plan should be able to find one that fits their needs.
