Sprint kills 5GB for $30 mobile hotspot data plan

updated 02:15 am EDT, Wed May 23, 2012

Replaced with one higher plus one lower tier

The 5GB data plan for phones supplied by Sprint acting as mobile hotspots is no longer available. In it's place, comes a 2GB and a 6GB plan. Users on the existing 5GB plan won't be forced to take one of the newer, more expensive per-GB plans. The new tiers are in place effective May 18.

The new 2GB plan at $20 per month works out to $10 per gigabyte, and the 6GB plan for $50 per month calculates out to $8.33 per gigabyte. In contrast, the old $25, 5 GB plan is just $5 per gigabyte. Sprint did not notify users or the press prior to changing the plans. Existing users of the 5GB plan can remain on the plan as long as they don't cancel the plan, then try to re-add a new hotspot plan.
