Sprint has dropped the price for its phone-as-a-modem (PAM) plan to just $15 a month, down from $50. However, the company has added new restrictions to this plan.
Previously, Sprint’s PAM plan — also known as tethering — was a stand-alone option. Now customers can only get it in conjunction with another of this carrier’s data plans, and the prices for these range from $30 a month for the Sprint PRO Pack or Blackberry Personal Pack to the $70 a month Worldwide Data Plan.
In addition, users must have a phone that supports Sprint’s EV-DO network.
As with the previous pricing, users are limited to 5 GB a month of data transfers.
