What's the Deal: Comparing unlimited data plans - Alicia Vitarelli reports during Action News at 4pm on June 18, 2018. (WPVI)

Last week, Sprint hoped to generate buzz by offering a $15 unlimited data, text and talk plan.

The good news? It worked. But the bad news? It worked too well.

After off-the-charts demand, Sprint pulled the promotion after just one week.

But, just because you can't get a family plan for $60 a month anymore, doesn't mean you're doomed to overpay.

There are some equally budget-friendly offers coming down the pike.

A company called FreedomPop is about to roll out its own $15 a month unlimited data plan. Details about the plan, including how much of that data is high speed, will be available by the end of the month.

Other low-cost offers are also available from Text Now, Mint Mobile and Republic Wireless.

As for the major players in the market, here's a look at what a single line of unlimited data will cost you:

- Sprint's Unlimited Freedom: $60 per month

- AT&T Unlimited Choice Enhanced: $65 per month, Plus Enhanced: $80 per month

- T-Mobile's plans run anywhere from $70 to $80 per month

- Verizon has three unlimited plans that range from $75 to $95 per month.
