Several weeks ago, we reported that Sprint was planning on doing away with unlimited 4G data for tablets like the HTC EVO View 4G and other mobile broadband devices. Sprint users were, unsurprisingly, pretty upset, but we now have some more details that may just lighten the blow.
Beginning November 13, Sprint is actually lowering prices on tablet data plans 3GB and above, and even, in some cases, offering higher data allowances than before. Additionally, while the $29.99 2GB 3G only data plan will be cancelled, Sprint is keeping the $19.99 1GB plan – and adding 4G access to it. (Previously, it was restricted to 3G.)
So yes, while it sucks not having unlimited 4G on your tablet anymore, these plans really aren't too shabby – especially in comparison to AT&T and Verizon plans. I mean, you have to give Sprint at least a little bit of credit for lowering prices and adding on a few extra gigabytes here and there. And, as the leaked document above shows, Sprint is still committed to unlimited smartphone data.
