Sprint 5Gb Data Cap Will Not Effect BlackBerrys

Well that is not entirely true since it will be in effect for tethering with your BlackBerry. After BoyGenius reported about the 5Gb data cap for Sprint. Cnet got a response from them that the cap will not be exactly the same as Verizon and AT&T’s cap.

SprintunlimiteddataThe new cap will only apply to tethering and using EVDO cards. That means that normal unlimited smartphone plans are unaffected. (Can you really use 5Gb on a smartphone?) You can catch the specific details on Cnet.

The funny part is that all of the Sprint reps i have met rag on Verizon and AT&T for having caps on their unlimited data. Their philosophy was you should get what you pay for when your buy unlimited. I guess those days have changed…

Anybody know what prompted the change all of a sudden? This is going to make WiMax a hard sell for Sprint. Who is going to want a 30 Megabit wireless connection if it is capped at 5Gb.
