Boost Mobile was officially purchased from T-Mobile by the DISH Network on July 1st, 2020. T-Mobile was required to offload the brand in order to gain regulatory approval to merge with Sprint. After closing the deal with T-Mobile, DISH made immediate changes to Boost Mobile highlighted by the release of a couple of new plans. One of the plans, $hrink-It, has already been featured in a new TV commercial.
Next week, DISH will refresh the Boost Mobile brand once again. According to Sneed Mobile Tech (SMT), there will be several new phone plans announced and some current plan deals will no longer be offered.
New Boost Mobile Plans Coming August 7th, 2020
The new plans that will be announced next week will target the budget end of the wireless market. The updated plans will start at just $10/month. All plans will include unlimited talk and text with the difference between each plan being the amount of high-speed data that is included with it. Plan details with the data differences between each are described below.
$10/month - 1GB high-speed data
$15/month - 2GB high-speed data
$25/month - 5GB high-speed data
The plans will make pretty good choices for those that don't need a lot of data, but they aren't without flaws. SMT says that the new plans will not be eligible for any device or add-a-line promos. It is not known if the new plans are hard-capped or if they come with unlimited 2G data after their high-speed data caps get reached. The plans will be available on Boost's expanded network which is T-Mobile.
According to SMT, the following plans are said to be getting retired on 8/7/2020.
3 lines for $100 (unlimited everything with 30GB of mobile hotspot data per line and SD video streaming)
4 lines for $100 (unlimited everything with 1GB of mobile hotspot per line and SD video streaming)
4 lines for $120 (unlimited everything with 30GB of mobile hotspot per line and HD video streaming)
The plans being retired are all listed as limited-time promotional offerings.
