Sprint adds mobile broadband to 'Everything' plan for $150 per month
Claiming it offers a savings of $599 compared to AT&T and Verizon, Sprint has unveiled a version of its unlimited "Everything" plan that includes mobile broadband for both businesses and consumers. The plan will cost $149.99, and include everything its existing $99.99 unlimited voice and messaging plan offers, along with 5GB of 3G access using a laptop.
Sprint charges $59.99 for mobile broadband on its own, so the bundle amounts to a savings of $10 per month. The company says existing customers can upgrade to the new plan without extending their contract; new activations will require a two-year agreement in exchange for a free USB 3G broadband device.
Despite Sprint's assertions about competitors' pricing, both AT&T and Verizon offer unlimited calling plans for $99.99 per month. However, these plans don't include 3G data or text messaging.
