Sprint responds to Cricket and offers new tiered prepaid plans

Taking a page out of Cricket’s handbook, Sprint has revised its Sprint-branded prepaid offers, and now has three new monthly plans, all of which offer its customers unlimited talk, text, and data, with different tiers of high speed data. (Data is throttled after the high speed bucket is used up.)

These plans are:

  • 1GB for $35/month
  • 3GB for $45/month
  • 6GB for $55/month

Previously, Sprint offered a $45 plan that included unlimited talk and text but no data, and a $60 plan that included unlimited talk, text, and data, but only 2.5GB of data at high speeds.

It’s important to note that Sprint says “video streaming may be limited to 3G speeds” – this is a restriction not seen in Cricket’s plan, or T-Mobile’s for that matter. Additionally, Sprint doesn’t spell out what the difference is between full speed and “3G speed” – so we’ll have to wait and see what that means exactly.

In any case, I’m really liking these pricing wars, and I hope they spill over into the postpaid world soon, too. Any of you planning to switch to one of Sprint’s new prepaid plans?
