The last few months have seen intensifying competition in the world of unlimited data, with Verizon Wirelessre-introducing its unlimited data option (Verizon Unlimited) more than a week ago, while other major mobile operators in America also making their respective countermoves.
Mobile virtual network operator ROK Mobile may have found a way to effectively marry wireless plans with life insurance. Over the past years, the MVNO (using the LTE networks of T-Mobile and Sprint) has built quite a reputation for combining the perks of a mobile plan with a music streaming service.
In what seems to be an ongoing spat between carriers Verizon Wireless and Sprint over who has the better unlimited data plan offering, Sprint just raised the bar. Earlier today, Sprint announced that they have added HD video onto their unlimited data plan offering.
It is perfectly alright if you have not heard of Faith Wireless -- after all, the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) has recently launched its mobile service just this week. And suggested by its name, the carrier does have a spiritual bent to it -- it will be giving a tenth of each of its customer’s payments to a church selected by the customer himself.
Sprint has decided to offer new subscribers 5 lines of service that come with unlimited data, voice calls, and text messaging for $90 a month (taxes not included). The first line of service is offered at $50 a month, the second line is $40 a month, while the third, fourth, and fifth lines are offered free of charge.
It appears that in the next few days, mobile virtual network operator RingPlus will be no more. But another MVNO, Ting Mobile, will be looking to benefit from major US wireless carrier Sprint’s upcoming shut down of RingPlus.
Sprint has threatened to discontinue service to mobile virtual network operator RingPlus for non-payment, and it could happen by February 11th. Apparently, the MVNO has filed a lawsuit against the major US wireless carrier, claiming that Sprint is involved in fraudulent practices. Moreover, RingPlus is seeking in its filing to stop or at least postpone the shut down.
Sprint is debuting a new four day promotional deal that decreases the price of the major US wireless carrier’s unlimited plan to $50 per month. At this price, those who avail of the special offer will get to enjoy unlimited data, plus unlimited voice calls and text messaging for ten dollars less than the normal cost. Sprint continues to offer a second line of service for $40 a month more, and any extra line added is $30 each.
Yet another major wireless carrier in the United States is making a move to expand into digital media. Sprint has recently announced this week that it has purchased one third of Tidal, the music streaming subscription service owned by rap superstar Jay Z and other music recording stars. Sure, Sprint’s move may not be as big as Verizon Wireless’ and AT&T’s, but it is a significant one nonetheless.
