Sprint CEO: No Tiered Data Plans from Us
Dec 7, 2010, 9:08 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Speaking with the Wall Street Journal's Walter Mossberg at the AllThingsD: Dive Into Mobile conference, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse confirmed that the company has no plans to introduce a tiered pricing model as its competitors (AT&T and Verizon Wireless) have done. Hesse noted that some customers are willing to pay a premium for unlimited services, even if it doesn't make economic sense. Hesse also confirmed, again, that 4G data plans are unlimited, but 3G data plans still have a 5GB monthly cap. Hesse hinted that Sprint is looking into the idea of charging one fee for multiple devices to connect to the network, and he believes that this will be the next trend in the market. Hesse also noted that if more spectrum were made available for mobile broadband services, it could be delivered to end users at a lower cost. Hesse reiterated that Sprint is sticking to WiMax for now and that it is on track to cover 120 million POPs with WiMax by the end of the year. When asked by Mossberg, Hesse said he "couldn't say" if SPrint would ever offer the iPhone, but he said, "Under the right conditions, yes, I would. It's a wonderful phone."
