Sprint offers switchers a free year


Sprint is throwing down the gauntlet to all other wireless carriers with a limited-time promotion that offers a free year of unlimited service if you switch this month.

Get a free year of unlimited service

Customers who take advantage of this unprecedented promo offer and switch from AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon will get unlimited talk, text and data on up to five lines. But you must bring your own handsets and SIM cards.

To get the deal, you’ll have to jump through a few hoops and accept some conditions:

• Autopay is required.

• Hotspot data limited to 10 GB a month per line.

• Rebate will be applied after two monthly invoices.

• Streams video at up to HD 1080p, music at up to 1.5mbps, gaming at up to 8mbps.

• MHS, P2P and VPN reduced to 2G speeds after 10GB a month.

• You may experience data deprioritization during congestion.

To sweeten the pot, Sprint is also waiving the activation fee right now.

The nation’s fourth-largest mobile network operator is making this no-contract deal available through June 30, so act fast.

How much can you save in a year?

The savings range from just under $1,000 a year to over $2,100 a year depending on how many lines you’re switching. Go online to Sprint.com/en/shop/offers/free-unlimited.html for full details.

Even though Sprint is taking aim at Verizon with this promotion, you can also switch over from AT&T or T-Mobile and get the deal.

If you make the switch, you’ll be eligible for a new Sprint phone after Oct. 1. But if you upgrade before that date, you’ll lose the free service plan.

After the one year of free unlimited expires, you’ll pay $60 a month for the first line, $40 a month for the second line and $30 a month for lines three, four and five.

FierceWireless.com reports Sprint won’t be aggressively marketing this campaign. With a deal this good, they hope news about it will go viral online and also spread by word of mouth.

Sprint already has the most spectrum among the Big 4 wireless carriers. So even though you could experience data deprioritization during times of congestion, the wireless carrier brings a lot of open airwaves to fill up before that would happen.
