    OP, what are you hoping that they will do? Not likely they are going to offer free, unlimited service during this current scare/threat. Until they officially announce an action, nobody can say for certain what might happen.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....

    Stores are independently owned and operated, so they would have to decide if they want to remain open or not unless the law says otherwise. People can still pay their bill over the phone and via autopay and they can order phones online. So they don't have to do any special deals or offer anything free until Dish takes over.

    I got a text message that said:

    To Support you, Boost will automatically add 20GB of Mobile Hotspot to your plan on 3/21. There's no extra cost. No action or call required.

    Normally I have 12GB of hotspot and then it gets cutoff.

    This will be nice for me because I never have enough hotspot.

    This is strange I checked my hotspot usage and it was 4.4 GB and I used about 5 GB more hotspot but it still says 4.4 GB.

    So the hotspot seems stuck at 4.4 GB.

    It still says I have a total of 12 GB so it says nothing about an extra 20 GB.

    The merger was closed as of today. Sprint's site is showing unlimited talk, text and data for as low as $35 a month with a bring your own phone option. It could be that things are stuck as Boost officially transfers over to Dish and they will have to come up with their own plans now.

    Well, my hotspot is still working but I am not sure how much I used because it still says 4.4GB.

    I checked out that kickstart $35 plan on sprint. It is not bad but it does not have any hotspot.

    The next plan up called basic for $60 has 500MB hotspot followed by unlimited hotspot at 3G. So the plan jumps up in price fast if you want hotspot.

    I thought about switching myself, but long term it's best for me to stick with Fi. Hopefully they will change their offerings soon.

    I ran out of hotspot then logged in and now it says I used 12gb.

    I checked data usage on Windows 10 and from what I see I used about 30gb over the last 30 days so I definitely got over 12gb.

    I found this link about the Our Covid-19 Plan.

    It says the extra 20 GB ends April 30, 2020.

    On my plan the GB shows zero but I used my hotspot so I assume it will show zero until I go over 20 GB and then start subtracting from my 12 GB.

    This month I did not get any extra Covid-19 hotspot data so the temporary promotion has ended.

    That was nice while it lasted. I used all of the extra 20GB hotspot data so now I will have a hard time getting along without it.
