In the weeks leading to the iPhone 6 launch, Sprint had been busy sprucing up its postpaid plans in the hope of strengthening and expanding its customer base. Now, the carrier is shifting its attention to its prepaid plans in a clear effort to one-up its competitor T-Mobile.
As a matter of fact, it appears that Sprint is giving its prepaid service a major makeover. The carrier is ditching old plans and replacing them with three new ones that promise not only more options for customers, but also more call time and data use.
The three new prepaid plans offered by Sprint as are as follows:
$35.00 monthly plan, which includes unlimited calls, unlimited texting, and 1 gigabyte of data
$45.00 monthly plan, which includes unlimited calls, unlimited texting, and 3 gigabytes of data
$55.00 monthly plan, which includes unlimited calls, unlimited texting, and 6 gigabytes of data
These new prepaid plans from Sprint are clearly designed to trump those of T-Mobile's, and it seems that Sprint may have a better offer. Case in point, T-Mobile's $50.00 monthly plan only includes 1 gigabyte of data, while customers can get as much from Sprint for only $35.00 per month.
Also, the new prepaid plans introduced by Sprint fits nicely with latest offer from Boost Mobile, a subsidiary of the company. Boost Mobile is currently launching a Data Boost campaign until November of this year, and it aims to lower monthly recharge prices for each plan by $5.00 at the same time doubling the data use inclusion.
By introducing new pricing in its prepaid plans, Sprint is also directly going head to head with Virgin Mobile whose Beyond Talk plans offer unlimited calls, unlimited texting, and data (2.5 gigabytes high speed) for $55.00 every month.
Sprint had previously offered prepaid plans for both feature and smartphone devices. These plans start at $35.00 each month for a basic plan that already includes 500 minutes of call time and 2.5 gigabytes of high speed data.
Where the old prepaid plans included unlimited data, high-speed data was throttled at the first 2.5 gigabytes. On the $45.00 basic smartphone plan, data was restricted to Wi-Fi only.
Sprint's prepaid service was only launched in March earlier this year. Sprint had planned to offer an alternative for customers who did not want to go for Virgin Mobile and other prepaid service carriers. More importantly, Sprint's prepaid plan offered customers an option that does away with contracts and credit checks, but still under a national carrier.
