Sprint today has announced a new Mobile Broadband plan, aimed at lighter data users. The plan aims to match the $39.99 plan recently released by Verizon Wireless. Verizon offers a $39.99 plan that was at 50 MB, but increased that to 250 MB upon the launch of their variant of the HP Mini netbook.
The new plan from Sprint doubles Verizon’s 250 MB, to 500 MB for $39.99/month.
Moreover however, overage rates are being cut dramatically. Users will only pay $.05 per MB for overages. 100 MB of additional data is now only $5.
Unfortunately, the plan is only available to corporate-liable customers, and is not being offered to consumers at this time. You will need a federal tax ID to sign up for this plan. The plan is compatible with all Sprint Mobile Broadband cards, and laptops with integrated Sprint Mobile Broadband
