T-Mobile and Sprint Lower Prices, Offer Free LTE Data
The nation’s number three and four mobile operators unveiled new pricing plans and offers that offer more data at a lower cost.
Sprint is adding a new family plan with 20 GB of shared data and four phone lines for $160. Customers who switch from a rival, however, can get the plan for $100 per month through the end of next year and can add up to ten lines. Sprint said it will also pay $350 to cover the cost of switching mobile operators and also give these new customers a total of 22 GB per month.
T-Mobile countered with a “rescue” plan that will “save” their friends and colleagues who are with a competitive carrier. Existing customers who refer a new customer will get unlimited LTE data for one year for free.
T-Mobile is also offering a family plan with four lines with ten GB of LTE data for $100 per month with a maximum of five lines. T-Mobile does not, however, charge an overage fee if more data is used; at that point, users have unlimited access to slower data services. It will also reimburse up to $650 for any cost in switching to T-Mobile.
