Boost Mobile Introduces New Plans, Starts $10/Month

Back in July, Dish Network officially the Boost Mobile brand and along with it, revealed a couple of plans: the $hrink-It! plan and a $35 plan with unlimited talk, text, and 10GB of high-speed data.

Today, the prepaid brand has taken the wraps off of its newest plans, giving their customers a number of different plans to choose from.

With the announcement made today, the plans that you can choose from Boost include the following options:

  • $10 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of high-speed data (new)
  • $15 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 2GB of high-speed data (new)
  • $25 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 5GB of high-speed data (new)
  • $35 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 10GB of high-speed data
  • $hrink-It! $45 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 15GB of high-speed data

As we know, the $hrink-It! plan starts out at $45 per month. But after three on-time payments, the monthly rate of the plan is reduced by $5, making it $40 per month. And after six on-time payments, the plan gets reduced by another $5, making it cost $35 per month. 

In addition to the three new plans, Boost has also launched data packages that can be purchased as a one-time add-on or a recurring payment:
  • $5 - 1GB of high-speed data
  • $10 - 2GB of high-speed data

For those with a greater need for data, Boost also has these two options available:
  • $50 per month - includes unlimited talk, text, data, and 12GB of of mobile hotspot
  • $60 per month - includes unlimited talk, text, data, 30GB of of mobile hotspot, and unlimited HD video streaming

  1. $10 per month plan - includes unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of high-speed data (new)

    Is the data hard capped or does it inc. "2g" speed data after 1 GB of high speed data?

  2. One thing you did not specify this the $35 plan has a hard cap. Your data will get shut off after 10 gigs.

  3. These plans SUCK!!! Don't switch to these plans. The $10, $15, $25 & $35 plans are CAPPED!!!!

  4. So will Boost continue to use the Sprint network, or will the "new" Boost use TMobile?

    1. For now, those who are using the Nationwide/Sprint network - will stay on that network for the foreseeable future. During 2021, Dish has plans to migrate it's Boost Mobile customers over to the Expanded/T-Mobile network. Currently, over 8.5 million Boost Mobile lines are using the Sprint network - it will take time for all lines/customers to migrate over to T-Mobile.

      It's too early to know what plans Dish Wireless has for those customers who have an incompatible handset with the T-Mobile network. Certainly, some kind of subsidy/discount wiill be offered to offset the cost of a new or re-furbished handset.

      I would not be surprised that in California, the California Public Utilities Commission (C.P.U.C.) requires Dish to offer compatible handsets at no charge to current customers - we will have to wait to see what moves Dish Wireless makes before the C.P.U.C. steps in and issues and order regarding upgraded handsets at no cost.


  5. Boost had problems but Dish has made it worse. They refuse to allow legacy plans on the Tmobile network, their new QOS has slowed already slow data to unusable. Phone deals have disappeared and they have gutted their family plans.

    It appears Dish is trying to run off their customers.

  6. These plans are hard "capped" - meaning once you use the allotted data associated with each plan - you will have no more data to use - not even at "2G" speeds. You will be able to use Wi-Fi at anytime - whether or not you have any data left as part of your plan.

    These four new plans MUST be activated over the T-Mobile (Exoanded) network - not Sprint (Nationwide) network. In addition, certain plans can only be activated at authorized Boost retailers - and not over the phone, web or national retailers such as Walmart.

    --New $35 10GB - current customers may change to this plan.
    --New $25 5GB plan is for new customers only.
    --New $15 2GB plan is for new customers only AND must be activated at a dealer.
    --New $10 1GB plan is for new customers only AND must be activated at a dealer.

    So, either the dealers are going to be mad as hell with what little commission they will earn on the $10 and $15 plans - especially if the customers bring their own device and do not purchase a device from their dealer. So, I'm not sure how these plans help the dealers.

    If anything, these plans are great for users with very low/no data needs or who are at a location where ample WI-Fi is available. These new Boost Mobile/Dish Wireless plans will compete with the offerings from senior-centric Consumer Cellular and Great Call/Jitterbug, and to a lesser extent, those who could not qualify for the low-income Lifeline plans.

    Lastly, the Boost Mobile dealer network is not ready to service the unique needs (hand-holding) of the senior market. Most current Boost Mobile customers skew younger - you don't see seniors inside Boost Mobile stores. That's a learning curve for the dealers.


  7. I like it under Dish. They are new to the industry of wireless so I think they deserve a little break. But, having said that, I'm ok with the 35g limit because we have wifi. But, lots don't and they depend on the data. I feel if Dish would make either the $50 or $60 deprio instead of a 2g throttle, they would have the perfect lineup of plans for every budget and every user.
