there’s basically no reason to pick Sprint’s hotspots over Verizon’s now.”
After all, Verizon 4G speeds crush Sprint’s.
Sprint’s mobile hotspot lineup now looks like this:
$45 | 3 GB
$60 | 5 GB
$90 | 10 GB
The problem here is that it’s 3G/4G data combined.
With overage charges at 5 cents/MB that’s $51.20/GB. On the flip side, Verizon charges $10 per extra GB. Futhermore, Verizon’s 5 GB plan is $50 and their 10 GB is $80. That’s $10 cheaper in both instances.
That means Verizon now gives you more data, at a higher speed and at a lower price.
It’s not looking good for Sprint.
