Sprint is the third largest U.S. wireless network operator as of 2014, having served 54.3 million customers at the end of the second quarter of 2014. Now the carrier has unveiled its newest family data plans, trying to win back customers that have chosen to join rival companies like AT&T and Verizon.
With the new plans, customers get twice as much data as the competition at about the same prices. The new plans allow up to ten lines with a shared data pool of 20 GB, which, paired by an additional 2 GB per device as part of a limited-time offer, amounts to a total of up to 40 GB of shared data through 2015.
You can see the pricing chart above, where all of the charges in the new plans are shown. There's also an additional $10 per tablet and shared data packs of up to 60 GB. Sprint said the following on its official blog:
Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO also added the following:
"Sprint is offering the best value to data-hungry consumers. Period. We are doubling the high-speed wireless data because today’s customers rely so much on their smartphones and tablets. We make it simple and easy for wireless consumers to get the data they need at affordable prices to make their lives easier, more productive and enjoyable. We are so certain that this is the best value on wireless today that for any customer who wants to switch to our new Sprint Family Share Pack, we will reimburse them for the cost to end their contract with another carrier.”
The new plans will go into effect on August 22nd and it seems that additional announcements will soon be made, covering new and improved plans for individuals, as well.
