One of the major issues with moving all your media to the Cloud is how expensive data plans can be for mobile devices. You don't want to pay hefty overages just to stream your favorite Sam Smith song all the time when you can store it on the device. Of course, that doesn't have to be a problem anymore if you're a Sprint customer.

The mobile service is rolling out a new unlimited data plan, at $20 less a month than their closest competitor T-Mobile. Sprint's unlimited plan costs $60 a month, per line. That's a savings of $240 a year over T-Mobile. Sprint has experimented with unlimited plans in the past, but this is their simplest one yet.

Today also marks the official start of the Sprint Spark enhanced LTE service program, which is designed to increase wireless data speeds across devices for all users. Sprint Spark is only available in 27 markets right now, but offers users average wireless speeds of 6-15Mbps on compatible devices. As we rely more and more on our mobile devices, it's good to see mobile carriers start to realize how unhappy customers are with data caps on mobile services. Now if they'd just do something about how expensive our coverage is in comparison to the rest of the world, we'd all be set.
