Sprint today said customers who travel to Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games will be able to talk and text for free, as well as use an unlimited amount of high-speed data for free. The Open World program already covers a number of countries across Latin America, but normally only includes unlimited talk, text, and 1 GB of data. Sprint is adding free, unlimited LTE in Brazil specifically for the impending games. The free data offer is valid during the entire month of August. About 100,000 American athletes, coaches, and family members are expected to travel to Rio for the games. Customers can enroll in the Sprint Open World program at any time.

Can't Stop Copying T-Mobile

For a company that thinks it's name is Verizon and compares itself to Verizon constantly, non stop, with its network, artificial quality, and consumer un-friendly practices, it sure does like to copy a lot of things (rather poorly and half assed at best) from T-Mobile.

Not saying that all carriers shouldn't offer free roaming for Olympics, but Sprint announcing it the same day as T-Mobile went live with it seems not only too coincidental, but that they need to ride the coat-tails of other carriers, with a "meeeee tooooo" child-like quality.

If being like Verizon is so amazing for Sprint - why is it trying to do everything T-Mobile does, but only half way?
Your argument doesn't make much sense. Why does it matter if they copy Tmob or Verizon or AT&T if it's giving away free UNLIMITED data the customer wins.
