Unlimited plans: Sprint vs. Verizon vs. T-Mobile vs. AT&T

Already priced lower than its competitors, Sprint has decided to add HD-quality streaming video and 10GB of mobile hotspot data per month to the unlimited plan.

The wireless carrier also says it saves consumers 50% off Verizon and AT&T’s unlimited rates for four lines.

Sprint’s unlimited plan is $50 a month for the first line and $40 for the second line. The third, fourth and fifth lines are no extra charge. The promotional pricing lasts through March 2018.
