Sprint Doubles Down on Data with Family Share Pack

Sprint today announced new shared data plans that offer twice as much mobile data as comparable plans from AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. Sprint's Family Share Pack includes four lines with unlimited talk and text and 20GB of shared data for $160 per month. AT&T and Verizon have similarly-priced plans that include only 10GB of data. T-Mobile's shared plan costs $100 per month. Further, Sprint is offering a huge incentive to families that port their numbers from another carrier. Sprint will give families with up to 10 lines unlimited talk/text and 20GB of shared data for only $100 per month through 2015, plus an additional 2GB per line. Under this promotion, a family of four would have up to 28GB of data per month and a family of 10 would have up to 40GB of data per month. The promotional $100 plan pricing will be available from August 22 to September 30. Last, Sprint is offering to cover the ETFs - up to $350 per line - for families that break their contract to sign up with Sprint Family Share Pack. All new devices must be purchased through Sprint Easy Pay. Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure said the company will debut new plans for individuals later this week.

You'd run out of time before obtaining 20GB!

I dont know guys, out of all my friends with Sprint, there are only a couple left still with Sprint. Despite being unlimited, their network was so slow that realistically I dont think they could download much without getting frustrated.

This 20GB sounds like false advertisement in the sense that their network wont be able to perform.

Good luck to those who believe that crap
It depends on the area you live in just like Verizon, AT&T, and T-mobile. In many areas especially with Sprint Spark their data speeds are fast.

You'd also run out of time before blowing through 150 gb of data with home internet. You'd also run out of appetite before reaching a ten-plate limit at a buffet.

You must be one of those "less is more" kinda guys. The rest of us, who actually pay...

I know you wont believe me, but as a former Sprint employee (Yes, Sprint has horrible service in some areas and trust me: the top level of management is even worse) I meet people having per month up to 30 GB IN A SINGLE LINE! I have no idea how they r...

Fail

Without addressing price point, these plans will not be disruptive at all.
Agreed.
...
Sprint's data service is like a food buffet. What's the point of having unlimited data when the network is slow as molasses? That's like a buffet with a cheap price, but nasty food.
...
$40 additional per phone if you purchase your phones with a 2 year agreement. Laughing
