Sprint today issued a statement seeking to clarify statements made on Thursday by CEO Dan Hesse regarding mobile broadband use. Sprint insisted that it does not throttle the data speeds of its post-paid smartphone users when they are using its network. It explained, "Sprint does have terms and conditions which prohibit certain types of data use that may impair other customers' usage or harm or interfere with Sprint's network. Sprint CEO Dan Hesse was referring to Sprint’s right to terminate service of data abusers who violate Sprint’s terms and conditions. Customers who abuse our network by violating the terms and conditions will be contacted by Sprint in an effort to have the customer change their usage to comply with their subscriber agreement. Customers who do not change their usage and remain in violation of the terms and conditions may be subject to actions reserved by Sprint, including but not limited to termination. Consistent with our advertising, engaging in such uses will not result in throttling for customers on unlimited data-included plans for phones."
