Recent development on unlimited data pricing by two major companies in the United Statesis good news to existing and new subscribers, as it will offer better and cheap deals for them. This plan was first conceived by T-Mobile US Inc’s (NASDAQ:TMUS) and followed later by Sprint Corp (NYSE:S). The companies’ consumers do not mind the first of the two companies to have the plan in place, but the issue of price and what is actually on the offer. The companies’ plans seem promising to their subscribers, with the unlimited data packages getting cheaper with every additional family member.
The two are apparently offering almost identical services to their customers, with the difference between them depending on a few factors, although Sprint is seemingly quite cheap upto to the fourth line where the two almost equal in pricing.On one end, T-Mobile is charging $70 for the first line, $50 for the second one and the others for $20 to a maximum of eight lines. On their side, Sprint are charging $60 for the first line, $40 for the second and $30 for third, covering only five lines.
T-Mobile is a bit costly as an charging extra amount to consumers who want to connect their devices via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi while Sprint does not charge for these services. Additionally, T-Mobile is charging additional $15 for their customers who want to access 4G speeds while Sprint offers the same at absolutely no additional cost. It is undisputable that Sprint has a better deal to offer, but T-Mobile still outsmarts it in coverage to reach over 310 million customers in its network’s footprint. Sprint has greatly improved its services in the urban areas with no much coverage in less densely populated areas.
With Sprint’s plan kicking immediately and T-Mobile’s coming on September 6, the two plans have something for everyone, with Sprint helping the urban people within the United States and T-Mobile on the other end, though a bit costly, having those who are upcountry well served. The unlimited data-pricingplan is expected to simplify pricing as well as eliminating data overage charges.
