Sprint has changed the mobile hotspot and tethering plan options that are available to its smartphone and tablet users. The new options available are a 2GB plan for $20 per month, or a 6GB plan for $50 per month, both of which are in addition to a standard rate plan. Those that go over their allotments will have to pay $0.05 per MB in overage fees. Prior to these changes, Sprint offered a 5GB mobile hotspot plan for $30 per month. The new plans took effect on May 18, though customers that still have the 5GB plan are able to continue using it until they cancel service. The carrier also says that it will now notify users when they reach 75, 90, and 100 percent of their mobile hotspot data allotments.source: Sprint, via: Phandroid
