They had Sprint for several years and then sold by T-Mobile to Dish in 2020 to maintain (sort of) US wireless industry competition, Boost Mobile is definitely not in a position to get AT&T any number of customers anytime soon but in terms of value for your money, this operator is getting a premium. to beat harder and harder.
While your unlimited phone and text messages obviously have no restrictions, the “unlimited” mobile data included in this dirt cheap plan can “go down” quickly after you use up 30GB. That’s down from the 35 gigs of “high-speed” monthly data offered on the $50 plan, but considering the 50 percent discount, we can probably agree that it’s well worth the sacrifice.
The only other thing you need to consider is that the $25 monthly plan also doesn’t come with a separate mobile hotspot allocation, so while the tethering is allowed, its use will count toward the aforementioned 30 gig high-speed bucket.
Still, Boost Mobile calls this the “lowest cost unlimited plan in the US” right now, beating out Metro’s entry-level T-Mobile option, for example, by a cool 15 bucks. In the meantime, there’s clearly no comparison of what Boost has to offer here with Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mo’s unlimited payment services for both huge size gaps and disparate target audiences.
