On Thursday, prepaid carrier Boost Mobile announced that it will lower the cost of its unlimited 4G LTE service for new customers signing up through March 31.

Instead of paying $55 for unlimited talk, text, and data (for smartphones), Boost will give new sign-ons a $35 monthly rate for the first 6 months of service. After that, the cost will revert to $50, rather than the full $55.

A prepaid Sprint brand, Boost Mobile uses Sprint's expanding LTE network, which is now available in 340 markets across the US and Puerto Rico. Boost's list of LTE-capable phones includes the Boost Max phablet, iPhone 5S and 5C, Samsung Galaxy S3, LG Optimus F7, Boost Warp 4G, HTC One SV, and Boost Force.
