Sprint has introduced a new unlimited data plan for tablets for $20 per month, but with some caveats to consider.

sprint-ipads
The fine print: video is optimized to 480p resolution, music streams at up to 500kbps, and online gaming streams are limited to up to 2Mbps. Data deprioritization also applies during times of network congestion.

iPad and other tablet users can choose to add HD video streaming at up to 1080p+ and HD music streaming at up to 1.5Mbps, and online gaming at up to 8Mbps for an additional $20/line/month.

To be eligible, customers must enroll in AutoPay automatic billing and have at least one active phone line on their account. The plan is available without an existing phone line for an additional $50/line/month.

The tablet must be purchased from Sprint's selection of available tablets, which includes the iPad lineup.

So $70/Mo if I don't move my phone to sprint? Meh

Sprint is good enough for my iPad use, but I want more coverage on my phone.

Man, I thought the limitation would be being on Sprint's network.

Way too much throttling going on, especially with the "network congestion" clause.

Then what are regular web speeds (loading websites, downloading files, etc.)? But hey, at least they're now one of only two who offer such things for tablets and smartphones.

Too many fine prints with sprint and tmob. Looks great as a headline but then.... slow service, deprioritization and if you want useable service it really cost twice as much or more if you aren't on their service now. Oh and you cant bring your own device, you have to buy from them. They are really hoping that no one reads the fine print, I guess....
