Unlimited Unshmimited: Sprint offers up 2GB for $40

$40 a month for 2GB of data with Sprint

The dust has settled in the Unlimited Data wars where the big four carriers have been seeking to out-unlimit-each-other. The numbers are in and Sprint is definitely interested in retaining customers who don't care or need unlimited data.

To keep everyone happy, Sprint brought back a bit of a tiered plan that includes 2GB of data for $40 a month (with AutoPay). 

Sure, more people gravitate towards the Unlimited Data plan options because they are simply easier to understand. There's little fuss in figuring out how much data you get, caps, and deprioritization. Still, so many people understand how much data they need and don't need, leaving the "unlimited data" unused.

What's the catch?


This is a hush-hush kind of plan. Sprint wants to stay on top with their Unlimited Data. This is their main focus. It's nice of them to consider their other customers, however. 

While they might try to up sell you on Unlimited Data plans, which in truth could save you a few bucks based on the number of lines you're looking for, it is important to be a savvy consumer and to say, "Nope. Thanks. I want 2GB for $40." 

Imagine that. Getting exactly what you want from your cell phone carrier. 

We leave you with this


Let's recap. Sprint got rid of pretty much all tiered plans a while ago and dove head first into their Unlimited Data plan with the other big carriers. 

90% of their customers want Unlimited Data so Sprint is on target with their desire to push this plan. Still, there is that small group that doesn't want Unlimited Data so here are the three alternatives:

Sprint is definitely not backing down from Unlimited Data plans but they want to make all of their customers happy.  Want to know more about Sprint? Go here.
