Boost mobile is an affordable MVNO that runs off the Sprint network.Â
It currently only has two plans: $35 for unlimited talk, text, and 3GB of LTE data, and $50 for unlimited talk, text, and data. It also has decent family plans, $125 for 4 lines of 3GB data each, and $140 for 4 lines of unlimited talk, text, and data. Like Sprint, once customers reach 23GB of data, they are subject to deprioritization, which means you are going to get slowed down when in a congested area. Boost Mobile also supports personal hotspot and visual voicemail on iPhones. However, Boost Mobile does have a few drawbacks. First, they run off the Sprint network, which means you’ll be on the slowest and smallest of the Big Four carriers. Second, they have terrible “roaming”; by “roaming” they mean 50 minutes of talk, and nothing else(not even texting), a month, if you own one of the few devices that supports it. 50 minutes of roaming is terrible, and cheaper options like TwigbyÂ have better roaming(Twigby has talk and text roaming). Also, unless you live in a big city(with LTE plus), you are going to get terrible speeds, that is if you manage to get coverage, which in basically non-existent outside of urban areas.
The verdict: There really isn’t a good reason to be using Boost Mobile.
