By -

Sprint has been boasting about its $60 unlimited plan, which includes bottomless high-speed data, since it launched in August of last year. Next month, that plan is undergoing a notable change.

Sprint has announced that it will soon raise the cost of its unlimited data plan. Currently available for $60 per month, Sprint's plan for unlimited talk, text, and data will have its price raised to $70 per month for new customers on October 16

Sprint said it plans to increase the cost of its unlimited plan. which offers unlimited calling, texting and data by $10 per month starting Oct. 16. The carrier currently charges $60 per month for unlimited service, and that price will increase to $70 per month in roughly two weeks.

“At Sprint, we give customers what they want – and they want the option of unlimited data,” Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said. “Rather than increase the price without warning, we want to give customers one last chance to take advantage of the $60 rate.”

The carrier pointed out that price is still cheaper than what T-Mobile charges for unlimited service ($80 per month). AT&T  and Verizon Wireless don't offer unlimited data options.

It’s also worth noting that while Sprint’s Open World international offering is included for free with the unlimited plan, you’ll need to pay extra if you want to use your phone as a mobile hotspot.
