Sprint latest Data Plan Offers Upto 5 Line For $90/Month

Sprint announced on Friday a temporary offer that seems to blast competitors like Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. For a limited time, you can now pay just $90 a month for everyone to get unlimited talk, text, and data on their phones via Sprint. Those of you keeping score at home will notice that's $18 per line, which is a little bit insane. Verizon charges $45 per line for four lines.

Once you sign up, you'll lock in that discounted rate through March 31, 2018.

Verizon Communications (VZ) on Monday will bring back unlimited wireless data plans, just three days after Sprint (S) undercut T-Mobile US (TMUS) pricing for unlimited data family plans, as wireless industry competition intensifies. Verizon claims it has been working "tirelessly but quietly" to deliver a new unlimited plan designed for "power users" and meant to eliminate concerns about exceeding data caps.

Starting tomorrow, February 13, Verizon is offering a new unlimited data plan to customers.

There was a catch, however: Verizon added that after 22 GB of data usage on any one line, the company might "prioritize usage behind other customers in the event of network congestion".

Kmart and Sears drop Trump Home line of products from websites
Retailers like Bloomingdale's, Amazon (AMZN, Tech30), Lord & Taylor, Macy's (M) and Zappos all still carry Ivanka Trump products. A Sears Holdings rep explained that the products were removed so the stores could focus on more profitable products.

The announcement comes shortly after a study revealed Verizon can no longer call itself the fastest wireless network.

The company at least acknowledges they have some drawbacks, clearly stating in the fine print of the ad for their unlimited plans that video streaming tops at 480p, music at 500 kbps, and games at 2 Mbps.

As for those interested in the unlimited data part, be warned that there will be some throttling to deal with.

At the start of this unlimited plan, Sprint confirmed that it will be charging $50 per month for those who want the plan. We're not limiting you to a single plan.

Sprint hopes to rank higher among national carriers with this $90/month offer, but its infrastructure and service represent a major obstacle.
