Because of the extremely low monthly price, the deal has proven to be too successful; Sprint is blaming heavy demand for its decision to shut down Unlimited Kickstart this Friday night at 11:59pm EDT (8:59pm PDT). Talk about ironic. Heavy demand for this plan is forcing Sprint to put an end to it. If interested, you still have until the end of Friday (June 15th) to sign up for it.
Sprint would not reveal how many new subscribers it has signed up so far with the plan, which offers unlimited service to a family of four for $60. That happens to be a 40% discount from the carrier’s usual price of $100 for four lines with its Unlimited Freedom plan. Sprint’s prospective new corporate parent T-Mobile charges $160 for four lines of unlimited, although that price includes taxes and fees. Verizon and AT&T also charge that amount for four lines in their lowest tier of unlimited service, but that price does not include taxes and fees.
