Without addressing price point, these plans will not be disruptive at all.

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.

I agree in sentiment, but this isn't even all you can eat...it's like saying you can have dinner at a steakhouse compared to twice as much food at a hospital cafeteria, where would you rather spend your money?

Have to break through the price point. 4 lines, 20gb, no overage, $100 indefinitely and we've got something to discuss.

What good is a meal at the steakhouse if you don't get enough to eat and leave hungry? Ten gigs on four lines is NOTHING these days - who cares how fast it is?

It's not a failed analogy. If you can only afford the $5 all you can eat buffet, you probably aren't considering any of the big 4 to begin with. There are plenty of other options out there.

Again, goes to my price point discussion.

Even those who can afford more suffer the same fate - they pay 100 bucks at the steakhouse for a small meal and leave hungry, whereas they could eat meatloaf to their heart's content at the buffet.

"Slow data" is a misnomer - it's merely not as fast as the top speeds available. Nobody thought 3G was slow five years ago, but everyone thought dialup was slow twenty years ago when that's all there was. 3G will play videos, music, and pretty much anything else y...

Haha - 10 gigs on 4 lines is a lot. Look at what the prepaid options are - Cricket 4 lines for $100 - 2 GB total, same with MetroPCS. That price includes taxes and fees, but still 10 GB for $100 is a bargain in comparison.

It's a lot - until you start updating apps, which is an ongoing thing. Unless you have wifi in your home, your app updates will quickly eat away your data bucket for the month.

$40 additional per phone if you purchase your phones with a 2 year agreement. 🤣
