Sprint announced a brand new, limited-time only promo that lets subscribers share up to 12 gigabytes of high-speed data for a monthly charge of $90. This new offer is part of the carrier's Family Share Pack, and already includes unlimited calls and unlimited text messaging.
Any customer who decides to avail of this promo will also get to enjoy savings on the data access charge that comes with each handset they use under the plan. Sprint usually requires a $25 charge per device, but now the carrier has decided to bring down the cost to just $15 for each handset used. For tablets, the data access charge is at $10 per month, while the other mobile broadband devices cost $20 each month.
Sprint's new offer is certainly not bad compared with other deals by rival major wireless carriers. Verizon Wireless and AT&T, for instance, both offer 10 gigabytes of shareable data but at $160 a month. Plus, these charges do not cover for access fees or equipment costs. T-Mobile's offer, which gives you 10 gigabytes of shareable data (good for four lines of service) for $100 monthly, is good but still can not beat Sprint's $90 price.
Sprint also offers an additional incentive to subscribers who decide to port their numbers to the carrier. Indeed, Sprint will waive the data access fees for each handset used for up to 12 months. To illustrate, a family or group of four members would get to save $720 for a whole year.
Moreover, Sprint is still paying early termination fees (up to $350 for each line) for subscribers who opt to end their contracts with other competing wireless carriers. And that is not all -- Sprint also announced back in January that it will be giving $200 worth of credit to any customer under another wireless carrier who decides to switch to Sprint's network within now until April 9th of this year. So not only do switchers get to have Sprint buy out their contracts from other networks, they also get to have two hundred bucks worth of credit.
With this latest 12 gigabytes for $90 promo, Sprint is really ratcheting up its efforts to gain new customers. But wait -- as always in special offers like this, there are a few caveats. Firstly, subscribers can only avail of this promo until March 12th of this year. In addition to that, customers must buy the handsets via Easy Pay or Sprint Lease in order to qualify for the discount on the data access fees.
