Sprint today took the wraps off two new unlimited plans that are launching tomorrow, July 13th.

First up is Unlimited Plus. This is the top-end plan that included unlimited talk, text, and data, 15GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot, and 1080p HD video streaming. You also get unlimited talk and text with 10GB of 4G LTE data in Mexico and Canada and global roaming, which gets you free texting and 2G data in more than 185 destinations. Rounding things out is a Tidal Premium music streaming subscription and a Hulu Limited Commercials subscription.

Unlimited Plus starts at $70 per month for a single line and goes up to $50 per month for a second line and $30 per month for lines three through five. If you bring your own device or buy a new phone at full price, you can save $20 per month per line.

And then there's Unlimited Basic. Unlimited talk, text, and data are included, but the plan only offers 500MB of LTE mobile hotspot, after which you'll be dropped to 3G speeds. You get unlimited talk and text with 5GB of 4G LTE data in Mexico and Canada, too, along with global roaming in more than 185 destinations. Video streaming is limited to 480p, music is limited to 500Kbps, and gaming streams are limited to 2Mbps. There's no Tidal subscription included, but you do get a Hulu Limited Commercials subscription.

Unlimited Basic pricing starts at $60 per month for the first line and goes up to $40 per month for the second line. Lines three through five cost $20 each per month. As with the Unlimited Plus plan, though, you can save $20 per line per month if you bring your own device or buy a new one at full price.

Sprint also notes that it's got a special offer for members of the military. If you're a veteran, active dury, or reserve of the U.S. armed force, you can sign up for the Unlimited Military plan which offers all of the benefits of the Unlimited Basic plan, but with half-price on lines two through five. That means line one is $60 per month, line two is $20 per month, and lines three through five are $10 per month.

Finally, Sprint still offers its Unlimited 55+ plan for customers age 55 or older. This plan includes unlimited talk, text, and data along with 480p video streaming, 500Kbps music streaming, and 2Mbps game streaming. Unlimited 3G mobile hotspot is included, too, as well as global roaming in more than 185 destinations.
