Up until now, Sprint’s wireless broadband customers have been able to enjoy virtually limitless Internet anywhere they can find an EVDO connection. That’s all about to change.
Sprint customers are reporting that there is a note attached to their latest bills, stating that bandwidth caps will start to get enforced within the next 30 days. This means that you are limited to only five gigabytes a month while inside the Sprint service area and only 300MB when roaming on someone else’s network. Overage charges could apply, so I’d be careful out there.
Capped data isn’t a Sprint-only phenomenon either, as other mobile broadband providers are following suit as well. You’ll be hard pressed to find anything that is truly unlimited anymore.
