G'day and Buenos Tardes from beautiful Barcelona where Gigabit Class LTE and Massive MIMO are moving from theory into real-life concepts and implementations at Mobile World Congress 2017. We’re on the ground for the biggest wireless event of the year showcasing these important stepping stones from LTE Plus to 5G on the Sprint network.
We’re excited to have achieved our best-ever performance in cities across the country, setting a new Sprint company record for highest number of Metro RootScore awards to-date. We’re pleased to rank #2 nationally in Call performance, rank #2 in a tie nationally for Text performance, and hold a competitive position in Overall performance. In addition we made significant progress as most improved in State RootScore awards, and we had the second-largest gain over first half 2016 testing by any carrier in Metro area testing.
Sprint’s Unlimited customers can be confident in our ability to keep meeting their demand for data now and in the future.
I recently heard a story about a Verizon customer that wanted to switch carriers after a big blow-up with their customer service folks. This customer didn’t end up switching because he was in one of Verizon’s “grandfathered” unlimited plans. They no longer offer unlimited data plans so he chose to stay in an old, overpriced one. AT&T is not much different as they only offer unlimited data plans if you sign up for DIRECTV® or U-verse® TV. No thank you!
Seriously. Is Verizon living in an alternative reality? I’m scratching my head after seeing Verizon’s new ads claiming consumers don’t need – or want – unlimited wireless plans? And they say their new 5GB plan is the plan we’ve all “been waiting for.”
All of us at Sprint couldn’t disagree more, so starting today, we are doubling down on Unlimited. For four days only, new customers to Sprint get Unlimited Data, Talk and Text for just $50 per month*. Add a second line and pay just $90 per month for both. Add additional lines for just $30 per line. Enjoy unlimited mobile optimized streaming videos, gaming and music and unlimited 4G LTE data for most everything else while on the Sprint Network. That’s worry-free wireless for at least $5 less than Verizon’s new 5GB for $55 plan.
Sports fans from around the country will soon be Houston-bound for some of the biggest and most exciting moments in football. To prepare, Sprint has been hard at work for more than nine months adding new network infrastructure and boosting capacity to ensure our customers have a great experience.
As our nation prepares to swear in the 45th President of the United States, Sprint customers in Washington, DC can rest assured that our network is ready to help them stay connected and share this momentous occasion.
2016 was pivotal for the Sprint network. It’s the year we closed the performance gap; it’s the year our customers (and the competition) stood up and took notice; and it’s the year we began running an even better network at a significantly lower cost.
