Sprint to offer new off-contract LTE plans for tablets

Sprint is adding the iPad and iPad mini to its device lineup and will offer a set of new LTE data plans that’ll complement these incoming tablets. The plans do not include a contract and are not tied to any device or brand, so you don’t have to buy an iPad or a Galaxy Tab to sign up for one.

Sprint says its plans will offer 20 percent more data than the plans on its US carrier competitors. The new plans start at an entry-level $14.99 for 300MB of LTE data, while power users can choose from a $34.99/3GB plan, a $49.99/6GB plan or a $79.99/12GB plan. To sweeten the pot, Sprint will also waive the activation fee for new 3G or LTE tablet customers.

The carrier didn’t forget current customers and will let them add a no-contract data plan to their current contract for $15 that’ll give them 1GB of data. There’s also a $10/300MB plan for customers whose wireless tablet data usage is low. The plans will be available starting November 11.
