Boost Mobile's Flat Rate Changing the Game

Techstination feature for Thursday, March 26, 2009

Saving money on your mobile phone bill. I'm Fred Fishkin with Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. The economic mess has prompted lots of consumers to evaluate how much money they are spending on all kinds of things. Take your mobile phone bill for example. And that's why Sprint's pay as you go service...Boost Mobile...has been attracting interest with its plan that offers unlimited calling, push to talk, texting and Web browsing....for a flat fifty dollars a month. Boost Mobile President Matt Carter...

"It's still early in the game, but we've been very pleased with the initial reaction. I believe that over time, it will indeed change the game. Instead of being on the defensive, we find ourselves on the offensive."

Boost runs on Sprint's Nextel network...designed for that push to talk service. Data speeds, for Web browsing, are slower than what you'll find on other networks...including Sprint. For may mean lower prices from Boost Mobile's competitors as well. You can find us at I'm Fred Fishkin.
