Sprint is reducing data access charges in some Family Share plans

Sprint desperately wants to defend its third place position in the US wireless market against T-Mobile, and thus is slashing data access charges in some of its Family Share plans.

According to the carrier, Sprint will reduce the data access charge for its $80 and $90 Sprint Family Share plans to $15 a month beginning on Friday, November 14. It says that this, in effect, means that Sprint offers more data than comparable plans at AT&T and Verizon – Verizon’s $80 a month promotion on its More Everything plan has a $15 data charge, but it’s for a limited time only, while AT&T’s $70 Share Value Plan has a date charge of $25 per month.

Sprint says:

Customers can build their own plan in three easy steps

  • First, choose the shared data allowance. For example, for 12GB, it’s $80 per month or 16GB for $90 per month for up to 10 lines.
  • Second, add data access for phones with unlimited talk and text while on the Sprint Network. The data access charge for non-discounted phones is $15 per month per line for 12GB through 120GB plans.
  • Third, add your tablet devices for $10 per month per line and mobile broadband devices for $20 per month per line.
  • There is no early termination charge and no annual service contract with non-discounted phones.

Sprint will end its promotional pricing on January 15, 2015.
