Boost Mobile Ups $35 Plan High Speed Data to 3 GB

Boost Mobile $35 Plan Data Increase Announcement
Sprint just notified Boost Mobile dealers that the Boost $35/month plan will be getting more data. Starting tomorrow, May 16, the plan will include 3 GB of high speed data per month, up from the current 2 GB.

The $35 plan also provides unlimited voice and messaging on the Sprint network, plus 50 minutes per month of off network voice roaming. As before, the plan includes unlimited audio streaming. Hotspot is allowed at no extra cost and unlimited 128 kbps 2G data is available after the first 3 GB of data is used. Customers using auto-pay are eligible for a $5/per month discount.

It's always good to see operators adding more value to their plans, but can't say this change impresses me much. The increase does make Boost's 3 GB plan $5/month cheaper than the 3 GB plan from T-Mobile's MetroPCS. However , the actual cost difference is smaller because MetroPCS pays its customer's taxes for them, while Boost passes point of sale taxes such as state sales tax on to the customer. At the $35 price point, Boost isn't even competitive with Sprint's other prepaid brand, Virgin Mobile which includes 5 GB of high speed data with its $35 plan. However Virgin does charge an extra $5/month for hotspot and doesn't offer an auto-pay discount, except to iPhone users.

  1. With Sprint divisions, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing...

    But both hands are flipping customers the finger.

  2. Nice. Boost works just fine where I'm at NYC, and since I have the 2gb for free promo from a few years ago, and auto pay discount, ill be paying 32.50 for 5gb a month. I can live with that just fine.

    1. Nice, boost also works great for me in Long Island NY. I'm on the 4 lines for $100 Unlimited everything plan and love it. We all do!! Remember it all depends on the area that you live. People keep bashing Boost/Sprint for no reason. #boostmobile #unlimited

    2. People bash Boost all the time, yes it may suck in parts of the U.S but in other parts it works just fine.
      Just wish more midrange phones had 32gb of memory like Metro PCS phones do. (Zmax pro, k20pro)

    3. Like people bashed the Chevy Vega. But it's all great because a few of them actually ran!

      Delete
    4. I owned a Vega. 1974 model. By then GM fixed the aluminum engine cooling issue, and I had no troubles at all. Sprint has made massive improvements to its network over the past 3 years. Rebuilt the whole thing for reliability and speed. It's still not the fastest LTE in most places, but reliability is way up.
      The trolls who have not used the new network and can only see the native coverage map are still stuck in 2013. Their recycled, outdated comments bring them no credit and do a disservice to everyone.

      Delete
    5. The 2017 native coverage map is rather damning: you can't use data outside of a tiny area. I'm stuck in 2017... It's Sprint that is stuck in 2007.

      And I've used the "new" Sprint network as recently as 3 months ago: a few little patches of 3g data in a sea of nothing.

      Besides, "only seeing" the native coverage area is a good place to start ...and end.

  3. total wireless has 5gb for 35 a month with unlimted talk and text is better then boost. Even Cricket is better with unlimted talk and text with 4gb for 35 wiht auto pay. Boost needs to do better.

  4. "People bash Boost all the time, yes it may suck in parts of the U.S but in other parts it works just fine. "

    Problem is the parts where it doesn't work outnumber the parts where it does about 5 to one... Or even more.

    See the green area here

    Boost/Sprint is more on the league of Bug Tussel than Verizon, for sure. But at least Bug Tussel doesn't falsely advertise that it is in Verizon's league.

  5. Boost Mobile coverages are spotty in many areas. A NYC customer can be outside on 77th street and Amsterdam avenue in the Manhattan borough and have 11 mbps down and 7 mbps up speeds and then travel over to the Brooklyn Borough to Eastern Parkway by the Brooklyn Museum and have 0.6 mbps down and 0.3 mbps up speeds. Also along the coast lines of Long Island the 4GLTE is not available the coverage switches to 3G or no coverage available. So Boost's coverage is not a regional USA issue it is spotty everywhere. 3GB is about 1.5 hours of streaming, not worth lugging around a large 10 ounce (with case) smartphone all month for 1.5 hours of video streaming. When Boost throttles to 2g speeds the 2G speed fluctuates between 35 kbps to 75 kbps not enough speed to download webpages with photos, have to switch to the UC Mini browsers to retrieve the webpages. Why have a large and heavy smartphone unless it has unlimited high speed data? Those with the Boost $100 4 lines unlimited 4G LTE data and avoiding spotty coverages have the best unlimited deal in the USA

    1. Wouldnt it be nice if all these MVNO's with their native carrier footprint coverages and roaming be more detailed in their coverage maps??? But then guess what! People would be migrating away like flies!

      Delete
    2. Well i must have the best unlimited deal in the USA then, Whooooooo

      Delete
    3. Flies and garbage? Is that how you describe Boost customers and Boost?

  6. So Boost is finally starting to catch up to Cricket...which already bumped their $35 offering up to 4GB.

    Honestly, Sprint should just throw in the towel.

    They're llike Rocky getting pummeled by Apollo, Clubber and Lundgren all at the same time.

    It's admirable that they've hung in there, but it's still painful to watch.

  7. BoostMobile Is Quite Splendid Thru The Ups And Downs...I've Been With Them 7 Years This Coming September...But It Is About Time BoostMobile Step Up~They Could Do Rather A Bit Better~3GB Of Data Is Better Than They Have Been Offering...I'd Like To See Their $50 Drop To $45[If Not $40]~And Start Putting More Great Phones In Their Lineup...And/Or Accept More Types Of Unlocked Devices...And Bring Back The Promo Codes...Also... Improve Coverage...

  8. FWIW, I used to be on Virgin Mobile (sister company of Boost under Sprint), and I also live in NYC. I had similar experience as Anonymous posted on 5/15@10:31pm. Some parts would see great speed (provided you have a phone that can take advantage of their "Spark") and move around the speed would drop. In addition, now that I am on Cricket, I feel voice quality is much better than Virgin Mobile.

  9. That's exactly what I say if Sprint has good coverage where you live it's probably the least congested network I on average see 50-60 even high 90 mb download speeds for $38 dollars a month for unlimited data that's just fine for me is Verizon better? Sure is it 2x or 3x better. I don't think so

  10. Cricket owns this price range now.. more high-speed data, no taxes, much better coverage map and building penetration. MetroPCS is getting there, but still rough on coverage. This Boost plan is laughable. Sprint is dying for a reason. I thought Dan Hesse was bad, but these foreigners running this company are somehow worse. Good luck to those sticking with them.

    1. "Boost Mobile on the New Moto G5 Plus"

      Pearls upon swine.

    2. The boost dealz app is not updating the $5 credits on the user's phone app. Check your app for when you are scheduled to receive your next credit and there will be a message stating an "error trying to fetch credit status". This error message has been occuring for the last two weeks and credits may not be issued

    3. .... are you calling the Moto swine?

    1. To anonymous of 10:47AM so you did receive your $5 boost dealz credit for May payment but does your boost dealz app when you click on the app show the "error trying to fetch credit status"?

      Delete
  13. I called Boost in regards to my Moto G5 plus and the Customer service rep to me that the $5 credit was added to my account.There was no error trying to fetch the credit card the Boost dealz app.i check my account today and it was applied. My balance is $90 due on 5/19/17. Btw if you're on boost mobile run to Best Buy and pick up the MOTO G5 Plus it a great phone. It was either the LG Stylo 3 or this phone. Glad I held out for it!!!!

  14. Being a spelling nazi is one thing, but it should be pointed out that intentionally misspelling the word "Deals" makes Boost look like illiterate morons. If they can "creatively" look stupid with language, I wonder what their view on accounting accurate is.

  15. The Boost Dealz app will be lowering the $5 credit down to $3 credit starting 8/22/17

  16. I got the virgin mobile 5 gig plan for $35. I like Sprint coverage but I get my broadcast data from metro PCs. I think sprint has been ridiculous making their data unusable for hotspots once we buy it, it is our data and we should be able to use it as we wish, glad to see your waking up from your slumber, though I kind of like doing business with multiple carriers and having multiple devices on multiple networks.
