Sprint Debuts Home Phone Replacement
Sprint today announced Sprint Phone Connect System, a service that uses Sprint's cellular network rather than hard lines to provide in-home or in-office telephony. Customers can get two home phones for $49.99 when initiating a new line of service. The service offers unlimited local and domestic long-distance calling for $19.99 per month. Sprint is pitching it to cord-cutting home owners and small businesses as a way to get basic voice service without the hassle of equipment installations or the need for wired networks. AT&T and Verizon offer similar products using their own cellular networks.
