Previously, Boost offered a 1.5GB plan for $25 and a 10GB plan for $50, so the new option is a vast improvement. Additionally, if 50GB isn't sufficient, users can add more data for $5 per GB. Customers of the older plans are grandfathered in if they choose to keep them.
But it's surprising that the more value-oriented Boost brand would not offer cheaper options with less data.
Boost's data-only plan still utilizes the ZTE Warp Connect mobile hotspot - and adequately performing device with a history of swollen battery issues.
Sprint itself offers a postpaid $50/month plan with 50GB of data, and also just launched a $60/month plan that includes 100GB of data on their more advanced mobile hotspot devices.
