The broadband service will not see a price hike, but the unlimited 4G feature will be removed as of next month.
Users will still have their limited 3G data plan they pay for (3GB, 5GB, 10GB) but the free unlimited 4G feature will be removed.
Sprint had offered the free add-on as they rolled out their 4G WiMax offering to new cities.
Smartphone owners, especially new iPhone 4S buyers should not fret, however:
This change does not apply to phone plans. Sprint continues to be the only national wireless carrier to offer unlimited data use without throttling for smartphones, on both our 3G and 4G networks.
