Sprint’s new CEO made waves when they were talking about new plans that would be very low and make everyone think before choosing another carrier….. Yeah about that.
So Sprint is releasing some new plans, And they have, But look making statements like “We’re going to make everyone think before choosing someone else” Is a big statement and I would not have led with this plan, Just my opinion. Sprint launches a new Family Share plan that allows you to have 10 lines for only $100.00 (Through 2015 then it will ADD 15.00 per line or 150.00 if you have 10) Sounds like a good deal on its face. 20GB of data with 2GB per line extra. So possibly 40GB of data on the whole account.
BUT HERE IS THE CATCH, You have to port your number in from someone else to be eligible for the discount…. Not a good move in my opinion.
And Sprint if you wanted to offer something compelling, You should have made the data Unlimited, I am sorry but people only go to sprint if at all now because of the Unlimited Data.
This is actually worse than the framily plan in my opinion for the loss of unlimited data.
I have included the plan image below so you can see the Koolaide Sprint is serving.
Now look I am a NEW sprint customer, I moved my business lines from Verizon to Sprint last week, So far things have been good, Either on par or better than Verizon in places.
I think If sprint wanted to make a splash here they should have led with the $50.00 Unlimited Everything plan, And or launch the 10 Lines 100.00 promotion but make the data unlimited. That would have surely made people think.
But sprint trying to do what AT&T and Verizon do at a lower cost is just not a good look, And in fact this should embarrass the new CEO and Corporate Staff that has come in.
Sprint fans and staff will say this is a big splash…. But if you want people to think you are serious about change….. Like T-Mobile was. Then this sadly is not it.
I still have hope that the new plans you announce this week for unlimited users are good, But leading with this plan set….. Is a fail.
