New Sprint Plans...Unlimited, My Way, My All-In

Recommended Posts

http://www.phonedog.com/2013/07/10/new-sprint-unlimited-my-way-and-my-all-in-plans-detailed-in-leaked-document/

 

After some quick calculations, Sprint's "My All-In" Play will be 9 dollars more than T-Mobile's Unlimited Everything but the added bonus with Sprint is that you get 5GB of tethering included rather than 500MB of tethering.

 

Awesome to me! Is SoftBank stepping in already?

I also received this from a source this morning.  It goes into effect 7/17.  The biggest draw back to me is the reduction of roaming to 100MB from 300MB.  That alone will keep me with my current plan.

 

Additionally, once you get to 4 lines, this is more expensive than existing plans.  Above three lines, each additional smartphone line is $29 per month now for unlimited data.  Above three lines, each additional smartphone line is $50 per month for unlimited data on the new plan.

 

Probably a necessary step.  But I will keep my plan as long as I can.

I noticed that roaming decrease afterwards too. It made me kinda sad but it is probably to save money to invest into the network.

looks like they are going to make more money on this then the plans they have now.  It will definately get people from the other carriers that see the "options" and don't do the math. 

 

new plan-3 phones= $50+$40+$30=$120+(3x$30)=$210

 

old plan-3 phones= $110+(3x$10)+(2x$20)=$190

 

I'll stick with my plan plus discount.

Isn't this in conjunction with the fact that New Sprint will have a lot more coverage?

Looks like they may limit Everything Data at some point and are going to start throttling streaming video.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I was saying maybe this decrease in roaming goes hand in hand with an expansion of the network. Masayoshi was talking big about that 16 billion and an LTE network as large as Verizon's LTE network so I don't know what's going to happen next!

What about the option to mix and match tablets, hotspots, etc. with these new plans like you can do with VZW and AT&T?

 

Edit: I see that you can add 1GB of hotpsot data for $10, but what if one wants/needs more than that?

Since you beat me to it i will post the pic. Looks like they may limit Everything Data at some point and are going to start throttling streaming video.

 

 

 

By limit, you mean limit the availability, correct?  Yes, I can see them scrapping the Everything Data plans for new customers and making them go to these new My Way plans.  Throttled streaming video appears to be on the My Way plans only...for now.

But then again, I can always stream at 1Mbps if the ping is low enough. I think that the streaming limit is supposed to cut back on the abusers. The people that use the network as an ISP of sorts and make the network near unusable.

I think that each GB is an extra 10 dollars. That means an extra $100 for 10GB of tethering.

I'm also seeing that these new plans are non-discountable  :o and streaming video may be limited to 1 Mbps. A lot of fine print and caveats to sort out.

The 2 and 6GB hotspot plans are still there. Fine print.

It's discountable it just comes off your data plan. Since everyone is else is posting pictures I'll post where it says that.

 

 

Edit Tapa talk didn't want to let me attach a picture. Grr

Very fine. Jeez, not even 40 yet and my eyes are apparently already starting fail me.  :(

 

At first blush, it seems like they need to tweak this plan just a little bit.

What's the overage on the 1GB smart phone data? The 30 per phone for unlimited data makes these plans more costly than my current one with 4 phones.

 

If they forced me off my plan I have now before network speeds were use able, i would be leaving sprint, so hopefully they don't try to do that, since 3 of my 4 contracts are up this year.

I would switch. I don't mind the 1Mbps streaming. The only time I stream is with music, which doesn't need 1Mbps and on WiFi at home. A YouTube video can be watched in HQ or HD believe it or not with a low ping 1Mbps connection.

Overage is 1.5 cents a mb

They have to build the network first.  Should we leave and come back after the network is complete?

At 1.5 cents a mb overage, you are insane to not take unlimited unless you are crazy careful with your data. If they capped your total data at 30 that would be cool, but I doubt they will.

It's listed as 1.5 cents a mb in the QRB, but then on.another page in FAQ it says .5 cents/15 GBP. So I'm not sure which is correct

My insinuation was that this is for new customers, again who are not into the details, who are comming over from other providers.  This is also with the expectation that the network will be completed in a timely manner thus decreasing the need for data roaming.

 

I know with the latest problems i've had, i've raomed quite a bit even at home.

Does anyone else think that the unlimited guarantee is foreshadowing of data caps in the future, or just covering their bases for way down the line?

    • I received an update this morning. 
    • Akron, OH - Median download speed increased from 22.7Mbps to 30.8Mbps.  Baltimore, MD - Median download speed increased from 24.4Mbps to 32.8Mbps.  Charlotte, NC - Median download speed increased from 14.7Mbps to 22Mbps.  Des Moines, IA - Median download speed increased from 16.8Mbps to 23.8Mbps. Fort Meyers, FL - Median download speed decreased from 15.5Mbps to 8.6Mbps. Mobile, AL - Median download speed increased from 18Mbps to 29.9Mbps. 
    • Sprint can't afford to go private, they can't afford to buy back shares from stockholders, going private won't happen.  Either the merger will pass (60/40 chance at this point), if not Son will find a buyer for Sprint and take a loss (hello WeWork) and as a trader the way Sprint's shares are trading its almost as if market makers are already pricing in a merger failure.  Sprint would have to do some serious trimming off its balance sheet, sale portions of its network and subs, or even file Chapter 11.  I don't really see Sprint filing bankruptcy I've seen companies with worse earnings and survive.  Son just wants out of the U.S. wireless market and merging with T-Mobile is the fastest way to do so all while pitching this "5G for all" bs <--- I don't even have faith in T-Mobile post merger if it happens.  Sprint needs someone with deep pockets like Altice or another large cable company (and most certainly not Dish). 
    • Yes, some of you disagree with me.  That's to be expected.  Sprint sucks in some places.  But Sprint is not only great in my area, but they're actually the best.  And in most metro areas, they are perfectly usable.  But guess what?  T-mobile sucks in many places.  And I can tell you here in their home market, they're the worst carrier.  Verizon also stinks in places too.  I suppose if I lived in a crappy Sprint market, I'd go.  But I can tell you I see more and more people who leave Sprint and either come back or even if they don't, admit that the network wasn't as bad as they thought and there was a complete over dramatization in the disparity in networks.  Everybody's gotta do what's best for themselves.  And if leaving Sprint is best for you, I certainly wouldn't hold it against anyone.  I've seen many go over the years.  And I still sit here plugging away behind the keyboard.  But the one thing that won't continue is the overly negative drumbeat that's happening in this thread.  You all are starting to build off each other's negativity, causing the conversation to become one sided and pointless.  Don't want to hear ad infinitum the same droll negative grumblings.  Especially the same 'ol criticisms and Sprint can't be trusted.  Frankly, the drama is not true.  Sprint took longer, yes, but it did upgrade its network, and the performance is better.  And on the whole, it's better than its ever been.  So it cannot be said Sprint didn't do it.  They did. So let's stick to the thread discussion, which is the merger.  Not on the network performance on Lower Botswana Avenue and your thoughts on changing networks because of your block. Robert
