In a move that is strangely reminiscent of a certain “uncarrier” campaign, Sprint is offering you up to $650 to leave your current carrier and switch to their Framily plan.
Sprint continues it’s public assault against AT&T and Verizon by now telling rural wireless companies to “fight back” against a “duopoly [that] is taking over our country, America.”
The Communications Workers of America say that Sprint Corp. could owe $4.5 million in back pay to the recently laid off workers. Sprint would owe an average of about $3,100 in back pay to the call center workers and also would be obligated to continue benefits for its former employees through May 17.
Following T-Mobile and AT&T, Sprint has now introduced an Android 4.4 KitKat update for LG G2 owners.
After AT&T brought KitKat to the One Mini yesterday, Sprint is now reportedly rolling out an update to Android 4.4.2 for HTC One Max owners!
It’s that time of year where the major wireless providers cry to the US government about how their companies are doomed without additional spectrum being freed up. AT&T has a long history of over-emphasizing capacity and spectrum constraints in order to get what they want from regulators and politicians. Capacity was the primary justification for the company’s decision to impose overage penalties on DSL users, despite absolutely no evidence those networks experience meaningful congestion.
In 2014, Sprint plans significant cost-reduction efforts that could drive $2 billion in savings. Sprint now seems to be implementing these cost-reduction strategies by cutting a significant chunk of their staff dedicated to repairing and refurbishing phones. A total of 55 slower-performing stores will be shut down across the country within the next few months.
Starting today, Sprint is accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5, with plans to sell the device for $199.99 with contract or $649 outright.
Sprint absolutely has the tools in place to build one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful, LTE network in the country. Unfortunately, we have been waiting since 2008 to get this so-called powerful 4G network from Sprint and nothing has materialized.
Sprint seems to be confused about the direction in which people are using their cellphones. While mobile data traffic increased 81% in 2013, voice minutes have been in steady decline since 2008.
