These two new unlimited plans from Sprint will go live tomorrow, July 13 and will replace their current Unlimited Freedom plan. This is an improvement over Unlimited Freedom's former 23GB data soft-cap.

If you have no use for Tidal and HD streaming, and if you don't frequently use your phone as a mobile hotspot, Sprint's new and cheaper Unlimited Basic offering might be the better choice. If you bring your own phone or buy a new phone outright, Unlimited Plus is available for $22 per month per line for five lines. Video streaming is now restricted to 480p instead of Unlimited Freedom's full 1080p access, and when it comes to mobile hotspot use, Unlimited Basic customers only have 500MB of LTE data to use compared to Unlimited Freedom's 10GB.
