Sprint details new LTE tablet plans
One day after Apple announced that Sprint would finally carry the range of LTE-equipped iPads, Sprint has just let information loose about its brand-new 4G LTE tablets plans.
The plans will start Sunday, November 11 – which puts this at a perfect time to coincide with the release of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad. According to Sprint, the new plans “offer customers up to 20 percent more data than Verizon or AT&T for the same price.” The carrier goes on to say that “all Sprint 4G LTE tablets” will be covered under the new plans, including the new iPads. I asked for clarification and was reaffirmed that “all” Sprint tablets will be covered under these plans.
Here’s list of the new plans:
- $14.99 per month for 300MB of data
- $34.99 per month for 3GB of data
- $49.99 per month for 6GB of data
- $79.99 per month for 12GB of data
Alternatively, owners of Sprint smartphones can add a tablet to their accounts to get a discount on tablet data. Those plans are as follows:
- $15 per month for 1GB of data
- $10 per month for 100MB of data
Also included in the new two-year contract plans is a waived activation fee. It should be noted that this will only be available for a limited time.
If you don’t want a contract, Sprint is offering Sprint Mobile Broadband Passes for tablets. Those plans are the same as the first set of plans, albeit without a contract – and therefore without subsidization.[Sprint Community]
