Four lines of unlimited talk, text and data for $35/month per line
Additionally, improvements to Sprint Business Share More plans give businesses of any size more choices to reduce costs while meeting needs of today’s dynamic mobile workforce
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), October 10, 2016 - Sprint (NYSE: S) now offers business customers several options for outstanding value and simplicity when it comes to their wireless needs – including Unlimited Freedom for Business.
Unlimited Freedom for Business
Sprint business customers of any size can take advantage of the extraordinary value and simplicity of Unlimited Freedom for Business. With a simple low price, business customers will get unlimited talk, text and data all on Sprint’s reliable network. For businesses with global operations, unlimited international text is also included from the U.S. to international countries with Sprint’s global roaming plans.
Beginning, Friday, Oct. 7, Sprint will offer Unlimited Freedom for Business:
- $55 a month for the first line, $35 for the second line, only $25 for lines 3-10, and $35 for additional lines1
- Unlimited talk, text, with unlimited mobile optimized streaming videos, cloud streaming gaming and music and unlimited 4G LTE data for most everything else2
- 5GB of 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot, VPN and P2P access
“We have witnessed an overwhelming positive response to our industry-leading Unlimited Freedom plan for consumers,” said Jan Geldmacher, president, Sprint Business. “And now, we’re looking forward to delivering this same type of plan to businesses. Our business customers can enjoy unlimited talk, text and data for one price. Our data-friendly business plans, coupled with a network that has more capacity and speed than ever before, allows businesses to take full advantage of today’s mobilization, digitalization and globalization trends.”
Business Share More Plans
Sprint has enhanced its Sprint Business Share More plans. These plans ensure that employees have access to the right amount of monthly sharable data virtually wherever and whenever they need it. The tiers range from 20GB with up to 10 lines to 500GB with unlimited lines. When a business grows and data needs increase, so does value. The more data you purchase, the better your value (price per gigabyte). Further, it’s easy to step from one plan to the next as needs change or as your business changes in size.
If customers do not use all of their data during a bill period, they can carry over unused data to the next month up to the amount of their regular plan data allowance.3
Sprint also offers Mobility-as-a-Service, which delivers to businesses an all-in-one solution that pairs the best devices with flexible data plans, provides an extended warranty with dedicated account support, and offers custom setup for a predictable monthly price per user. Sprint has added new unlimited data options to this plan that can be used across all premium and iconic smartphone options.
Customers who sign up for Unlimited Freedom will experience Sprint’s highly reliable network, which is better than ever. In fact, Sprint’s analysis of drive test data from Nielsen – covering the top 106 metropolitan markets in the U.S. – shows that Sprint’s reliability now beats T-Mobile’s and performs within 1% of AT&T and Verizon.4 Sprint will even cover switching fees up to $650 per line via an American Express® Rewards Card (less phone trade-in credit provided) after online registration and new phone activation.5
The Unlimited Freedom for Business, Business Share More, and Mobility-as-a-Service plans are part of a robust portfolio that Sprint offers to business customers. Each plan includes a range of simple, flexible services that help workforces to collaborate, mobilize and accelerate.
