We heard from Boost Mobile this afternoon. Here is their quote:
Boost Mobile Customers will continue to see the same, low-cost pricing they love, and the rumor that a new tax structure is coming is false. While Boost may eventually include taxes on select digital-only plans, sold exclusively on-line, Boost retail locations will continue to keep their simple tax-inclusive pricing on place.
Thanks to Boost for the clarification!
The days of “taxes and fees included” appear to be over at Boost Mobile. Wave7 Research reports that Boost will now start charging customers and they won’t be included in the advertised price anymore.
Boost has also added to it’s FAQs on their website to include: Taxes and fees are extra; however, some customers who activate service in-store may receive Boost’s tax-inclusive plans. They do not explain what the “tax-inclusive plans” are, but Wave7 reports that taxes and fees are only weeks away from also being collected in stores.
This is just the latest in changes from Boost. They’ve also recently discontinued their popular Shrink-It and Affordable Family plans. Wave7 believes that Boost is also likely to discontinue its $10/month plan.
