Sprint adds an Unlimited plan without high-resolution video

Sprint's adding a $70/month unlimited plan and neutering its $60/month one

Sprint adds an Unlimited plan without high-resolution video

During times of network congestion, users of either plan will see their data speeds restricted - but only after 50GB of data has been used in a given billing cycle.

Hulu is included in Sprint's Unlimited Freedom plan, alongside 10 GB of personal hotspot data per line. Global roaming for text and data is free for 185 destinations - travelers to Canada and Mexico will get unlimited talk, text and data with up to 5GB of LTE speeds.

Meanwhile, the Unlimited Basic plan trims down the features and the cost. To lessen the blow, Sprint is offering a $50 prepaid MasterCard to the first ten people through the door of a Sprint store tomorrow to create a new line on one of these new plans.

But life goes on, and so there are more stories to tell about the Crawley family and their servants. Bates having a baby, Dockery's Mary expecting her second child, Edith marrying, and so much more.

Along with Hulu, Unlimited Plus includes the Tidal music service, with music streaming up to 1.5 Mbps. As you might have expected, they are similar to Unlimited Freedom, only with a few tweaks here and there, plus all of the throttling and non-unlimited unlimitedness you would expect from a USA carrier.

The Unlimited Basic plan has the same price as the Unlimited Freedom one before it, but cuts hotspot allowance to 500MB and you can only stream standard definition video, and not HD quality. "Combined with our new Unlimited Military and 55+ plan we're providing something for everyone, at the best price". You can add a second line for $40 and third, fourth and fifth lines for $20 each.

So if you bring your own phone, a single line Unlimited Plus account would be $50/mo.

Kevin Anderson Outlasts John Isner in a Five-Set Marathon at Wimbledon
The 12-times Grand Slam victor Djokovic leads Nadal 6-4 3-6 7 (11)-6, with their match expected to resume at 1pm on Saturday. Nadal was knocked out in the fourth round, losing 13-11 in the final set to Luxembourgish journeyman Gilles Müller.

If you want fewer limits on your unlimited plan, Sprint is offering Unlimited Plus for $70 a month, which includes HD video streaming and 15GB of data. Under this promotional pricing, Unlimited Plus costs $50 a month for a single line, with a second line available for another $30, and lines three through five costing $10 each. That's also true when roaming in Canada and Mexico.

The plan starts at $60 per month for the first line.

Even better news for Sprint customers: the carrier is raising the threshold at which it reserves the right to slow down speeds for unlimited subscribers who use a lot of data during a billing period.

Trump claims win after threatening to quit North Atlantic Treaty Organisation during tumultuous summit
Rosenstein said he had briefed Trump about the allegations earlier this week and said the timing of the announcement was a coincidence.

Sprint and Verizon are both trying to market these changes as a way to give their customers more choice over what they want in their plan, and while that's fine, continuing to call them "unlimited" is a flat-out lie at this point. "So, hurry to a Sprint store, these promotions won't be around for long!"
