New Sprint Offer Beats Competition By Giving Customers More Data for Less Money

Sprint Family Share Pack offer gives customers 12GB of data and unlimited talk and text for only $90 per month

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), February 20, 2015 – Continuing its pledge to offer U.S. wireless consumers the best value in wireless, Sprint (NYSE:S, news, filings) announced today a new offer in its popular Family Share Pack plans. For $90 per month, customers can get up to 10 lines with unlimited talk, text and 12GB of high-speed data to share on the Sprint network1. This is the best family share plan available among all the national carriers.

Competitive Comparison

Sprint is reducing the data access charge on the $90 Family Share Pack plan from $25 to $15 for handsets. For customers switching their number to Sprint from another carrier, Sprint is waiving the access charge for handsets, tablets and mobile broadband devices on 12GB or higher data allowances for up to 10 lines for one year.5 All devices must be purchased through Sprint Easy Pay, Sprint Lease or the Sprint iPhone for Life Plan. A family of four will save $720 in data access fees for the year.

In addition, for customers who bring their number and activate on a 12GB or higher Sprint Family Share Pack plan, Sprint will buy out their families’ contracts with an American Express Reward Card worth up to $350 per line6. For a family of four, that’s an additional benefit of up to $1,400. This switching offer is available at Sprint stores, and Sprint Telesales. Customers must register
