We were already sure that Sprint would be killing unlimited data pretty soon, but this looks to be the first step in the process. Sprint is now axing unlimited data for Mobile Broadband plans – as seen in the picture above. Instead of getting your allotment of 3G and unlimited 4G you are getting your allotment of 3G combined with 4G. For example if you have the 3GB of 3G plan it would be 3GB of both 3G and 4G together.

It is important to note here that this does not affect your smartphone data plan, and for those of you with a smartphone, you will still have unlimited data. But that may change in the very near future. Since the rest of the major US carriers have axed their unlimited plans, except for T-Mobile, which throttles your data after a certain point.

Will this make you get rid of your Mobile Broadband plan? If so, explain it in the comments, we’d love to hear about it.
