Was reading through Sprint reditt earlier, and seen a post stating this Friday, Sprint will have this available. Anyone else hear about this?

It's already on the Sprint website. 25 without auto pay. Not sure why they still include the other rates for tablets when this rate trumps them all. 

 

This one includes optimized data while the others don't.

I am aware of that. But seriously, I feel sorry for those who will pay for 6GB of non-optimized data at $55 a month (that's a few movies a month).  It's just absurd.  Sprint should just have one plan for tablet. $20 with autopay is cheap enough for everyone.

Now, how can i get the best deal on an ipad mini 4 along with unlimited tablet plan?

If you do a 2yr contract with that new plan it's $10/mo more for subsidized device. Unfortunately, as of right now, I don't know of any places to get a good deal on the mini 4. I'm thinking toward the holidays.

I signed up on this with a the Galaxy Tab E, great price, 8" tab is perfect size.  Mostly going to be a netflix/hulu device, used it last night and the 480p streaming cap was no issue for the screen size.

Just bought a Samsung Tab E to put it on this new $20 "unlimited" tablet plan. $106 on Ebay right now, which sure beats Sprint's $300 price point. Seller claims it is brand new and sealed.

I want to add the Samsung S2 but I don't think it's available as BYOD.

On the streaming restrictions, I've noticed a quality reduction on Youtube (480p is the highest available PQ), but Netflix, WatchESPN, FSGo, MLS, NBCSports, etc all are crystal clear.

Besides Youtube, were the others 720p?

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
