Sprint Backpedals, Offers Shared Data to Biz Customers
Sprint has quietly begun offering shared data plans to its business customers. The plans are only available to small businesses (30 lines or fewer) via Sprint's Business Direct, Care, and Telesales channels. The shared data can be applied to smartphones, tablets, hotspots, and other gear. The plans start at $139.99 for 20GB of data for up to 10 lines, with the first line included. After that, each smartphone added costs another $40 per month, feature phones cost $30 per month, hotspots cost $20 per month, and tablets cost $10 per month. For example, a small business that wants to have three smartphones, a hotspot, and two tablets would pay $139.99 for the first line, $80 for the two additional smartphones, $20 for the hotspot, and $20 for the two tablets for a total of $259.99 per month. Sprint is also offering a 40GB plan for up to 20 lines that starts at $274.99, and a 60GB plan for up to 30 lines that starts at $349.99 per month. The plans will be available between now and June 13. Before today, Sprint had discounted the idea of shared data plans, believing its "unlimited everything" plans were more appealing. Sprint has not indicated if it will offer shared data plans to its consumer customers.
