As an existing Boost Mobile customer enjoying the current network, what should I expect? (“Will the Boost acquisition change my phone, plan, service, or cost?”)

  • There will be no changes to your rate, account, or billing cycle.
  • Your account will continue to be on Boost’s billing systems, so there’s no need to change any of your account information.
  • Users with unlimited plans are still able to use unlimited data, without a cap on the amount of data you use. To maintain Quality of Service for all of our customers, we will make a data speed reduction for the small percentage of Unlimited customers who use more than 35GB of mobile data during a billing cycle. This does NOT include Wi-Fi usage. Visit for all the details.
  • You’ll benefit from the J.D. Power award-winning customer service from Boost and DISH.
