Sprint Will Continue Offering Unlimited Data On Its Forthcoming LTE 4G Network

Phillip Dampier April 4, 2012 Broadband Speed, Competition, Consumer News, Data Caps, Sprint, Wireless Broadband 2 Comments

A Sprint spokesperson this week confirmed the company will continue selling “unlimited data” service on their forthcoming LTE 4G network.

Sprint’s Nichole Cappitelli told TechHog the carrier plans to extend unlimited access, with no speed throttling, to those buying Sprint’s first LTE phone, the Viper 4G.

Sprint begins accepting pre-orders for the LG phone April 12, with an anticipated shipping date by the end of the month.

Sprint’s 4G LTE network, still under construction, will provide improved 4G speed and value for customers looking for some savings over AT&T and Verizon Wireless.  Sprint currently delivers slower 4G WiMAX service from its partner Clearwire.

The Viper 4G phone will sell for $100 with a 2-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate.  With Sprint’s Everything plan, $80 will buy you unlimited mobile data, texting, and calling.  A similar plan from Verizon that only includes 2GB of mobile data is priced $40 higher.

Until July 22, Sprint will bundle 50GB of free cloud storage and sharing from Box, available from the Google Play app store.

Sprint is America’s only national mobile phone company offering unlimited and unthrottled data plans.

      sprint is currently disagreeing with one of the last true unlimited providers i know of millenicom.

      as of this comment i may be forced to find new internet due to this stupidity.

      sprint is considering killing off millenicoms unlimited 3g/4g plans(50gb cap)

      i hope this site gives some notice to sprint trying to kill several thousand unlimited accounts if not more.
