After a few days of rumors, Sprint confirmed that it will be killing unlimited data for its mobile hotspot plans and users will be receiving a 5 GB cap.
According to a post on PhoneScoop, starting October 2, users on the $29.99 mobile hotspot plan will have a 5 GB limit per month for 3G/4G usage. Sprint is the only major carrier to really offer truly unlimited data with its smartphone plans, so it’s kind of disheartening to see it inch toward the tiered-pricing model. Sprint is quick to point out that mobile hotspot data and smartphone data are counted differently.
So, if you’re on the Now Network, what do you think of these changes?
