Despite the merger of Sprint and T-Mobile, waiting for its approval from the fed, Sprint has gone ahead and introduced a new plan. Unlimited 55+ takes a page out of T-Mobile’s book and will compete against the Magenta carrier’s plan for senior citizens.
Sprint and T-Mobile are scheduled to merge, but are still in competition with each other. Sprint’s new plan known as Unlimited 55+ is very similar to T-Mobile’s Senior Citizen plan, offering a discount to those over the age of 55 years. Don’t be surprised if Verizon is next to do something like this.
Subscribers of the new plan will get two lines of unlimited data, talk and text for $70 per month. To break it down, you’re paying $50 per month for the first line and $20 for the second line. This matches T-Mobile’s offer and will presumably be the result of the merger once all said and done.
The Unlimited 55+ plan is available now and includes global roaming to over 185 countries at no extra charge. There’s also unlimited mobile hot-spot data at 3G speeds. Head to a Sprint store today with a government issued form of ID to verify your eligibility.
