Sprint today announced an update to its lineup of unlimited cellular plans, with four tiers that offer unlimited data, talk, and text, HD streaming, global roaming, and more.

At the top, Unlimited Plus offers unlimited data, talk, and text nationwide with a 15GB LTE mobile hotspot, Hulu (Limited Commercials) and Tidal Premium (not HiFi) subscriptions, 1080p video streaming, and text and data in over 185 worldwide destinations. Under this plan, when roaming in Canada and Mexico you can also get unlimited talk and text and 10GB of 4G LTE data.

Unlimited Plus starts at $70/month for one line, or is available for $22 per month per line for five lines, if you bring your own phone or buy a new phone outright from Sprint. Those that decide to lease a phone will get Unlimited Plus at the regular price of $42 per month per line for five lines.

The next tier is Unlimited Basic, which includes unlimited data, talk, and text nationwide with a 500MB LTE mobile hotspot, a Hulu subscription, 480p video streaming, and text and data in over 185 worldwide destinations. Roaming data in Canada and Mexico is slightly lowered in this plan with 5GB of 4G LTE data.

Unlimited Basic starts at $60/month for one line, or is available for $32 per month per line for five lines.

The last two plans are geared at military and older users, called Unlimited Military and Unlimited 55+:

Sprint salutes veterans, active duty and reserves of the U.S. armed forces with our Unlimited Military plan. Customers on Unlimited Military get 50 percent off family lines – the first line is $60 per month, the second line is an additional $20, and third, fourth and fifth lines are only $10 per month per line.

And, if you’re 55 or older, Sprint offers Unlimited 55+. This is an excellent plan that offers unlimited data, talk and text plus great features for only $35 per month per line for two lines.

When the plans kick off this Friday, July 13, most Sprint stores nationwide will open one hour early and offer a suite of promotions for customers:

- Get a new iPad on us when you activate a new phone line on an Unlimited Plus or Basic plan.
- The first 10 people through the door who activate a new line (new or existing accounts) with Sprint on Basic or Plus will receive a $50 MasterCard® Prepaid card. Good only on July 13.
- Through July 31, activation fees will be waived on lines three through five when customers activate on Unlimited Plus or Basic.

The two main new plans -- Unlimited Plus and Unlimited Basic -- are evolutions of Sprint's previous Unlimited Freedom plan, now split into two so that customers "can get the best choice for them," according to the company.

Earlier in the summer, Verizon updated its plan lineup with a new unlimited plan, and over the years AT&T and T-Mobile have also introduced new unlimited plans, some of which limit the data allotted to customers each month.

Isn’t “unlimited” an oxymoron by now? There’s obviously limits with all these plans.

The article states (and correctly so) that Sprint offers unlimited data, not unlimited bandwidth. That means that Sprint customers may not receive LTE speeds all the time, especially if they have exceeded 22GB during the cycle and are trying to access a tower that is experiencing heavy usage at that point in time.

If people would read what is actually stated, instead of injecting personal expectations in the legalese, the common retort around here about 'this isn't unlimited' would be a lot less common.

Found the guy that works for Sprint!
I stated fact which doesn’t require one to work at Sprint to convey.

Very poor logical fallacy retort on your part.

I'm still confused why all of these carriers are using the word unlimited then giving you 500mb of data.
It's 500mb of hotspot data, which they don't even have to include at all even in an unlimited data plan. For the phone, the data is still unlimited.

Last year they had a promotion, one year of free unlimited service if you switch from Verizon, I took them up on the offer but the service was so bad that I went back to Verizon after the second month.

They have got better in some areas but only because so many customers have left the service.
Like old saying: you get what you pay for. Do not expect the best coverage and services Verizon offers from lower price carriers.
