Sprint's latest plans offer double the data of Verizon plans for the same price

Sprint has introduced a new set of plans, dubbed the Better Choice Plans, which take aim at Verizon's S, M, L, XL and XXL buckets, but offer double the data for the same price. The carrier has run numerous promotions in the past to get customers to switch to its network, like slashing monthly bills in half, but this is a great way for customers to get large data buckets at a more affordable price.

Sprint's data buckets will start at 3GB a month for $30, which Verizon only offers 1GB for $30 or 3GB for $45 a month currently. The plans will go as high as 40GB a month for $100 under its XXL bucket, which only nets you 18GB a month from Verizon. To further entice customers to make the switch, Sprint is still offering to cover up to $650 per line in switching costs when moving from another carrier. These new plans go into effect on Friday, Feb. 19.
