Sprint to Cut One-Year Plans from Offering
Sprint has confirmed that it will no longer offer one-year contracts to new and existing customers starting October 2.

Sprint said that the bulk of its customers already choose two-year contracts. Several other policy changes take place October 2, including a new 5GB cap on mobile hotspot service. Sprint is also launching its new CDMA-based DirectConnect service on October 2.
