This week, Sprint announced via its blog not one but two new unlimited plans. It seems that no US carrier is ever settled with the plans they offer, since they constantly change. Sprint is the latest to make changes and add new plans. Things are about to get a little confusing, but we’ll try to simplify things as much as we can.
A few weeks ago, Sprint started a promotion that gave new customers a low-end unlimited plan for just $15 per month per line. The offer known as Unlimited Kickstart helped Sprint capture new wireless subscribers because of the low monthly price, but the carrier will no longer be able to keep it up due to higher than expected demand for the service.
Despite the merger of Sprint and T-Mobile, waiting for its approval from the fed, Sprint has gone ahead and introduced a new plan. Unlimited 55+ takes a page out of T-Mobile’s book and will compete against the Magenta carrier’s plan for senior citizens.
T-Mobile and Sprint have officially announced their merger to form a single company which will be named T-Mobile, resulting in a $146 billion valued company with more than 200,000 people employed. Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile parent) will have 42% of the ownership, while SoftBank (Sprint parent) will have 27%.
Word has come in from trusted sources that US Carrier Sprint will soon put a stamp on Google Voice support. The integration will be put to rest on June 1, so enjoy it while it lasts.
Seemingly out of nowhere, the Wall Street Journal put out a report this week regarding the T-Mobile and Sprint merger possibility. We thought merger talks had died for good a few months ago, but here we go again.
Recently we got the news of AT&T planning its 5G release by the end of 2018. Now we have the news of Sprint planning its 5G release, which will begin in the first half of 2019. Interestingly, Sprint has listed the same cities as AT&T, of which will be the first to support 5G service. These are Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, and Washington DC.
Are you a customer of Sprint’s unlimited plan? If so, you’re in luck, because the carrier just gave you free access to Hulu premium.
