According to the results of a recent survey conducted by Cowen and Company, industry leader Verizon Wireless remains the top mobile operator in the United States (despite some bit of slippage, more on this later) in terms of overall brand or image, while number four carrier Sprint has shown some significant improvement. Cowen conducts its survey on a quarterly basis, gathering feedback from over a thousand poll respondents across the country.
Just this week, Sprint has revealed that it will be offering basic data and text messaging, absolutely free of charge, in 165 locations across the globe. On top of this, the major US wireless carrier is also offering voice calls at a price of $0.20 a minute. Moreover, its subscribers are also free to buy LTE high speed data directly from their mobile device, even without having to place a phone call to customer service support.
Sprint has recently brought down the pricing of its unlimited data plan to $50 a month for one line of service. This piece of news comes right after the major US wireless carrier was reported to have discontinued its long running half off promo for new subscribers.
It was a good run, but it is time to bid farewell to Sprint’s half price billing special offer. The major US wireless carrier first started its promo back in 2014, and after a two year run, the company is officially discontinuing the deal.
Subscribers of Sprint can now pay for mobile service that their loved ones or contacts can use in Mexico and El Salvador. The major US wireless carrier has accomplished this by joining forces with Movistar Mexico and Movistar El Salvador, which are both ran by telecoms giant Telefonica.
Sprint is already accepting preorders for LG’s newest flagship smartphone offering, and the LG G6 that the major US wireless carrier is offering is enabled with High Performance User Equipment (HPUE). The device is scheduled to launch in April 7th in store shelves everywhere, with a price of $29.50 a month over the course of 24 monthly installments.
Virgin Mobile, a prepaid arm of major US wireless carrier Sprint, is introducing a new option called Data Love Unlimited, which at $60 per month offers customers unlimited 4G LTE voice calls, text messaging, and data. On top of that, this latest plan also comes with mobile optimized video streaming, gaming, and music (video content is in 480p resolution, music is at 500 kbps, and cloud gaming is up to 2 mbps).
It seems that Sprint is currently testing a new special offer that bundles four lines of service that provide unlimited data with a Sling TV subscription, absolutely free of charge. Although it should be noted that the major US wireless carrier is only making this promotional deal available to its current and new subscribers who are based in the cities of Chicago in Illinois and Atlanta in Georgia.
During the Global 5G Test Summit held in Barcelona in Spain this week, various mobile operators and tech vendors that include AT&T, China Mobile, NTT DOCOMO, Vodafone, Ericsson, Huawei, Intel, Keysight, MediaTek, Nokia, Qualcomm, Rohde & Schwarz, ZTE, and Datang all pledge their support for a worldwide 5G specification established by means of tests, trials, and cooperation between carriers, mobile manufacturers, and network builders.
