Sprint's new 55+ unlimited plan, which was rumored in April, is available today. Now, Sprint customers who are 55 or older can sign up for an unlimited service line for $ 50 a month or two lines for $ 70.
Customers who meet the age requirements will get the same benefits as the customer. Regular unlimited Sprint plan (which usually costs $ 100 per month for two lines), including unlimited calls, text messages and data, along with the mobile connection point (limited to 3G speeds) and international text and data messages (limited to 2G speeds). It will also be subject to Sprint's specific speed limits, which limits video to 480p, music streaming at 500kbps, and streaming games at 5Mbps. If you're a Sprint customer who is over 55, It is almost a no-brainer.
The deal has a striking similarity to T-Mobile's Unlimited 55+ plan, which, in addition to sharing the same name, also offers two unlimited data lines for $ 70 a month (or $ 50 for a line). It is surprising how an operator that offers a cheap and successful deal can make other operators respond by offering similar treatment. It's almost like T-Mobile and Sprint compete with each other for market share is something beneficial for customers.
Fortunately, seniors may not have to worry about the plan for which they signed up, since T-Mobile and Sprint are in the process of merging. After that point, the newly merged entity will surely continue to offer such attractive offers, despite having a dramatically less competitive reason to do so.
