Sprint has announced their new data plan offer. Unfortunately, this week, a new report has criticized Sprint’s network, listing it on in the last place among all national carriers. For Sprint, the most important things which matter for customers when looking at the performance of a network, speed, and coverage are disappointing.
Compared to other carriers like AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile, Sprint does not provide such a good service for their users. Thus, to make up for the disappointments, Sprint decided to launch a new data plan offer at an incredibly good deal. The offer started being available on February 10, and it will last until next year.
The company will offer five lines of unlimited data for only $90. That means each line will cost about $18 and that is amazing. Nevertheless, users should know that there are some limitations too. The deal is bound to last for a year. What is more, to benefit from this five-line offer you need to buy five lines. If you only want to purchase one line, then it will most likely cost you approximately $50 in a sale.
The new plan is a little tricky because the idea of “unlimited” is not really there since the company argued that the scheme lasts for only one year. This offer looks a lot similar to the one implemented by T-Mobile a while ago. Nevertheless, that one is not unlimited either. If you try to access video streams on your mobile phone, you will only be allowed to watch it in standard definition.
Moreover, mobile hotspot use was marked, and those customers who tend to use it very frequently will be throttled whenever peak times are coming. However, despite the restrictions imposed and also adding some more fees which will eventually be included in the plan, this offer is of great value for a family of five who may want to save on their phone bill.
Before trying to apply for this offer, you will first need to check whether your area is covered by this company’s network. Users need to utilize Sprint’s coverage checker and the accurate coverage map of OpenSignal to make sure they are covered by the network. Probably, some may want to know that after the promotional period gets to an end will need to pay $10 for the first line, $40 for the second one and the lines 3-5, customers will pay $30.
