The number four biggest wireless carrier in the United States is now currently offering six months of Tidal’s HiFi upper tier streaming option absolutely free of charge. This tier is normally offered by Tidal (one third of which was acquired by Sprint back in January early this year) for a price of $20 a month, but Sprint has decided to make this plan available to all of its subscribers at no additional charge.
Sprint is actually no stranger to offering free HiFi streaming to its customers. As a matter of fact, the major US wireless carrier used to provide free access to the HiFi option to new sign ups. This time around though, the mobile service provider has now chosen to also include all of its current subscribers.
After the first six months, those who signed up for the offer will be automatically downgraded to the standard $10 a month Premium option. Plus, Sprint will also be donating a couple of dollars (for each new line of service activated, or for every handset bought or leased) to its 1Million Project, which aims to provide Internet access to the homes of low income high school students in America.
Meanwhile, Sprint has revealed that it is planning to launch over 60 new outlets in New England in a year and a half’s time. This is part of the wireless carrier’s overall strategy to continue to improve its direct to consumer retail presence. According to Sprint, the move should be able to generate over 450 jobs all throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and upstate New York. Moreover, Sprint is looking to take full advantage of recent network investments in specific markets that include Boston, MA; Buffalo, NY; and Providence, RI.
Sprint has also claimed that with the addition of 800 MegaHertz, 2.5 GigaHertz, HD Voice, and carrier aggregation deployments, it has managed to upgrade more than 600 cellular sites across the greater New England region. As revealed by the company through an official statement, it has completed extensive improvements even in specific venues like Fenway Park and Gillette Stadium, as well as launching 2.5 LTE at the new ERA arena located in Buffalo (home of the Buffalo Bills NFL team).
The last few months have seen Sprint increase its retail distribution improvement efforts, even as it continues to deal with various RadioShack outlets shutting down across the United States. Some may remember that back in March early this year, RadioShack had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, stating that it intends to discontinue about 200 outlets, while continue to deliberate on what to do with its remaining 1,300 stores.
