Sprint downgrades unlimited plan, adds new premium 'Unlimited Plus' offering

Sprint adds an Unlimited plan without high-resolution video

If you want an experience similar to the old Unlimited Freedom plan, you're going to have to shell out some more money.

The new Unlimited Basic plan is far inferior to the existing $60 Unlimited Freedom plan.

If you still have the current Sprint Unlimited Freedom plan, you can keep it for now, as Sprint makes no mention of forcing current subscribers to join one of these new plans. With Basic, customers can get five lines of Unlimited for $32 per month per line.8 Unlimited Basic includes: TV you love, with Hulu. Video streams at 480p while music goes to 500kbps and gaming at 2Mbps.

Unlimited Plus features unlimited talk, text, and data, full HD (1080p) streaming, 15GB hotspot data at LTE speeds (3G after), unlimited talk/text plus 10GB of data in Canada/Mexico, and subscriptions to Hulu's limited commercial option and Tidal Premium. For an unspecified limited time, customers who bring their own phone or buy a phone outright will get $20 knocked off each line per month. Under this promotional pricing, Unlimited Plus costs $50 a month for a single line, with a second line available for another $30, and lines three through five costing $10 each. The carriers have been increasingly stretching the definition of an unlimited data plan - once a single, simple all-you-can-eat option - into something with a myriad of different adds-ons from hot spot capability to freebies like Hulu or AT&T Watch.

Credit: BravoKiloVideo/ShutterstockSprint has essentially split its unlimited plans in two, with the less expensive Unlimited Basic offering a lot of the same features as Sprint's outgoing Unlimited Freedom plan at a lower rate for families of four. As you might have expected, they are similar to Unlimited Freedom, only with a few tweaks here and there, plus all of the throttling and non-unlimited unlimitedness you would expect from a United States carrier.

The plan starts at $60 per month for the first line. 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. Good only on July 13. You can add a second line for $40 and third, fourth and fifth lines for $20 each. "We're offering unbeatable value on our award-winning network".
