If you're not a fan of those restrictions, Sprint's more than happy to sell Unlimited Plus to you for $70/month.

The new lower-tier unlimited plan delivers less value than the current Sprint unlimited plan.

Sprint is mixing up its unlimited plans starting tomorrow (July 13), with a nod toward giving customers more options when it comes to their monthly cellular service. The first is a $60 Unlimited Basic plan, which costs the same as Unlimited Freedom, but reduces hotspot capabilities to 500 megabytes and reduces video streams to standard definition.

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. Plus, there's Hulu and a free TIDAL Premium account to boot.

Anti-Assad rebels still control a chunk of the north-west, and the north-east and a large chunk of the east are controlled by Kurdish-led militia.

Meanwhile, the Unlimited Basic plan trims down the features and the cost. The pricing is worse if you're a couple, however, as two lines of Unlimited Freedom costs $90, and two lines of Unlimited Basic is $100. Even if you bring your own devices, that $32 per-line cost remains the same, so no discount there. A second line costs $50 and following lines are $30.

The arrival of Sprint's new unlimited plans means the end of one of the carrier's better offers, though.

To be clear, Sprint's pricing now largely lines up with T-Mobile's Unlimited One plan, which provides one line of service for $70 per month and four lines of service for $160 per month. First up is what Sprint calls "Unlimited Plus". But here we are, with a press release on Sprint's Newsroom blog announcing some big changes to its "unlimited" plan.

For both plans, Sprint is doing something nice: it's raising its limit on unlimited data (it pains me to write that) from 23GB per month to 50GB per month, which is the same limit as T-Mobile. While roaming in Canada or Mexico, subscribers will get unlimited talk and text, and up to 10GB of 4G LTE data connectivity. And Sprint's 4G LTE network is the most improved in the US with national average download speeds up 30.9 percent year-over-year, more than any other national carrier.6 Sprint is making its largest network investment in years and its Next-Gen Network build is well underway. You can add a second line for $40 and third, fourth and fifth lines for $20 each. "Add all of this up and there's literally never been a better time to switch to Sprint", said Draper.
