Sprint announces new ‘unlimited’ plan with ridiculous 600Kbps streaming video cap

The plan itself is $60 per month, then you add $20 for a leased phone. That means you give Sprint the phone back at the end of your two year lease. The total $80 per month cost (taxes not included) gets you unlimited talk, text, and high-speed data — sort of. There’s a footnote on Sprint’s announcement page, and when you pop down to the bottom to see what it says, there’s an admission that All In includes a permanent limit of 600Kbps on streaming video. So things like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO NOW will only run at this reduced speed. Sprint says this “may impact quality.” You think, Sprint? – Ryan Whitwam, Geek.com
