Reason to keep my Unlimited My Way Plan

The other day I added a line to my account with a iPhone that I already owned with its original sim. The rep added the line but failed to tell me that it would also be attached to a 2 year agreement. I called back and they said as of last year that was the new rule even if I add a line with a device a already own. So it got me to thinking...is there any real reason to keep my legacy plan if this type of stuff is going to be applied to a plan like mines. So I ask the question, what is some reason as to why I should keep my Unlimited My Way plan instead of just dropping it for the Sprint current $75 unlimited plan? For those who did part ways with their legacy plan did you regret it?

I'm on the new unlimited plan with two other friends. We had an older unlimited plan that was much more expensive than what the new plan offered. The only minor drawback was that the roaming data allotment (which for some reason never works) dropped, but the hotspot capability has been nice, so no regrets so far. None of us use enough data in a given month to trigger the "deprioritization" threshold.

I I may just drop my plan to the newest unlimited plan. I have a friend who is on it and he uses he said about 40gb a month and in his experience hasn't noticed any slowdown. Too what I also read was if I was to upgrade my phone on the UMW I would then fall into the network management policy. I know that the plan had the unlimited guarantee for life but honestly even if I did get a newer unlimited plan and sprint did away with unlimited sprint won't kick anyone off their plans.

    • At least a few sites in STL are now at 100 MHz.
    • 100 MHz n41 is live in Austin and...Bentonville, Arkansas. Guessing this went live on Tuesday or Wednesday in Austin; network was acting a bit wonky on Tuesday. Noticed it yesterday, as I'm still a little too far away at home to catch n41. Peak speed in Bentonville 1/3 mi from the site was 675-700 Mbps down, 80-90 Mbps up, with the upload speed only possible with a 20 MHz B66 anchor...which seems congested at times. They also have 5 MHz B2 here as an anchor, which predictably leads to slow uploads. n71 is 15x15 here. Sprint B25 is two 5x5 channels. Weirdly, seems like I'm being routed through Nashville, so latency is rather high, and tethering performance is somehow quite poor...maybe it's due to congestion on the PCC meaning that the difference between on-phone and tethered priority is the difference between a usable connection and...not. Also, VZW (with the old Alltel SID for CDMA) is what you end up using inside the Crystal Bridges museum, though the area has WiFi so not the end of the world.
    • The Sprint site at 520/202 was decommissioned a few weeks ago. Everything was pulled off the pole. 
    • It looks like N5 supports 5, 10, 15, and 20 MHz channel widths. I wonder how long they'll wait before they make a change to be able to use more of that spectrum for N5. Possible options I see: Use 15x15 as B26/N5 using DSS (If thats an option, or would it have to match and be N26?) 5x5 as B5 LTE for older phones and that still leaves 5x5 for HSPA.  A more aggressive option would be to use 20x20 for N5 exclusively and 5x5 for HSPA. This still leaves 10x10 B12 and 10x10 B14 for older phones for low band. Hopefully they enable SA if they go this route. Since I believe you can't aggregate low band LTE with low band NR in most cases, phones using the N5 carrier would not be touching the B12 and B14 carriers. If they enable SA on the 20x20 N5 carrier it would also help free up their limited midband spectrum for older non-NR phones. That would also prevent falling back to LTE only inside a building just because the mid-band anchor band was too weak. In Daytona AT&T was broadcasting 5x5 B2, 10x10 B66, and 10x10 B30 and that was it for midband. 
    • I've found 2 decommissioned Sprint sites in Louisville, both were sites with both T-Mobile and Sprint. In both cases all Sprint tower equipment including the rack were removed. I haven't had time to dig through our permit site to see if I can find anything, but I'll be surprised if I do.
