It was only a matter of time actually, and now it really is happening -- the unlimited wars are now on prepaid, thanks to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. T-Mobile and Sprint, of course, fired the first shots back in August of last year when they launched their respective unlimited data options, effectively igniting a war over who has got the better unlimited offering.
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.
T-Mobile will be paying the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) $48 million as settlement for misleading mobile users with regards to its unlimited data plan. Just this week, the government agency revealed that through an investigation, the major wireless carrier was found to have not done enough to make the connection speed and data restrictions on its unlimited data plan clear to consumers.
In light of the recent 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Italy just this week, all the major wireless carriers in the United States, namely Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, have revealed that they are planning to waive all communication fees between the US and Italy on a temporary basis.
Sprint and its prepaid brand Boost Mobile better watch out -- T-Mobile is launching a couple of new special offers by way of its own prepaid arm, MetroPCS, and the promos are aimed at Boost Mobile’s customers.
MetroPCS, the prepaid subsidiary of major US wireless carrier T-Mobile, has recently announced a new special offer targeted at families or groups of mobile users looking for a multi-line plan that is easy on the budget. Indeed, customers from other mobile networks who decide to switch to MetroPCS can avail of a couple of lines of service that already come with unlimited voice calls, unlimited text messaging, and 6 gigabytes of LTE data for each line, for only $60 a month.
The competition intensifies as wireless carriers from every corner of the United States continue to introduce offer after offer in the hopes of gaining new subscribers, including those currently subscribed to other rival mobile service providers.
Customers of MetroPCS, a prepaid subsidiary of major US wireless carrier T-Mobile, can already make use of their mobile devices just like home when visiting the country of Mexico. But just this week, the mobile services provider has decided to extend its service to the nation north of the United States border via its latest North America Unlimited add-on.
Back in December of last year, Sprintintroduced a deal that promised to reduce the bills of subscribers of rivals Verizon Wireless and AT&T in half, that is if these customers decide to switch allegiances to Sprint.
