Sprint Responds to AT&T's Promotion With Its Own Double Data Deal

Sprint today announced it is increasing data plan allowances for higher-tier customers in an attempt to compete with AT&T, which recently launched a new promotion that doubles the data available to some subscribers. Sprint also is waiving its existing monthly device access fee until 2015 for new customers. Sprint's double data promotion is available to new and existing customers who sign up by October 31.

Sprint's offer extends to its existing 32GB, 40GB and 60GB Family Share Packs, which cost $130, 150 and $225, respectively. Starting today, customers who sign up for the promotion will receive 60GB, 80GB, or 120GB of data at no extra cost. Similar increases are available to corporate customers on a Business Share plan. Customers can call Sprint customer care or visit a retail store to take advantage of this offer.

Sprint recently introduced its new Sprint Family Share Pack that allows customers to share data across multiple devices. Customers pay a fixed price for an allotment of data that is accessible by up to 10 devices. Besides the monthly data fee, customers also pay a monthly access fee for each device connected to the account. Each plan includes unlimited calling and messaging.

What's the point? Network is too slow to use that much data. That's like having an unlimited dial-up plan

They have unlimited data/voice/messaging for 60 bucks or 50 if you have an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Who used tiered plans on Sprint?

I had sprint a few years ago because they seemed to have the best price and were the first with LTE, but I switched to VZ (even paid a an early term fee) because I found their coverage so horrible wherever I went. I thought it as a case of "you get what you pay for." Anybody have recent/current experience with Sprint, and how is the service?

I'm in Chicago with Sprint and I have LTE wherever I go. LTE + unlimited data is awesome...

Your turn again AT&T!



This is stupid though. Let's get rid of unlimited. But now lets offer 100's of GB's of data for the same price as your 10GB plan.

Next AT&T will offer 250GB, and sprint will offer 1TB, then 1PB.. before you know it we are back at 'unlimited' again :rolleyes:

See, I never understood how AT&T could advertise themselves as the "fastest LTE network" when I always beat anyone with AT&T (or TMo or Sprint for that matter) wherever I am.

With XLTE, I've gotten up to ~95mbps down (~75mbps consistent), there's no beating that.


Those are great speeds...but in reality anything over 10Mbps on a mobile device will be excellent. Sprints 2.5Ghz network is great, and they have a significant amount of spectrum to keep bumping the speeds up through carrier aggregation. Some areas Verizon LTE is barely 1Mbps...just like Sprint and others. I always tell people get what works best for them. They all have their pros and cons. For me, in my area...Sprint is excellent. Verizon is excellent in Maryland as well...they just cost more.

Verizon won't do a thing. They never do. They have the fastest data network out there and they know it. It rivals or is on par with most cable internet providers.


Best coverage yes (especially when you are out in the middle of no where for voice calls), fastest LTE that's a big fat NO and it's highly area dependent. So I really won't run around using the "fastest data network" slogan. Unless of course you work for Verizon or have their stocks.

In my area, one of the big city in the US, I hardly break 10 Mbps, I'd be lucky if I can get 5 Mbps on LTE. My ATT and Tmobile friends have me beat all the time. Not to say that I don't like Verzion, there is a reason that I'm with them, but that slogan of yours is just not correct.
