Sprint Reduces Data Acess Charges On $80 and $90 Plans

Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure
        In it’s fight to increase market share, Sprint has elected to take another page out of T-Mobile’s book by lowering rates on a couple of it’s plans.  Sprint’s latest quarterly results weren’t too favorable from a postpaid subscriber point of view as they reported a net loss of 272,000 postpaid subscribers, thus Sprint’s CEO Marcelo Claure needs to continue to shake things up to stop the bleeding and avoid being surpassed by T-Mobile in terms of subscriber size.  So, to take another step in trying to reverse the postpaid losses, starting November 14th, Sprint will be lowering the data access charges on it’s $80 and $90 plans by $10 thus dropping the charges from $25 to $15.  This is a limited time promotion that is due to expire on January 15th 2015.   So, if you’re on the Sprint network or thinking of signing up, the way it works is if you
were to choose the $80 plan which includes 12 GB of LTE and unlimited talk and text, you'd have to pay an additional $15 for each smartphone you want to add service for.  If you had three smartphones you'd be paying $125 a month on this plan.  At this time, I'm not sure if you signup now, if you'll get to keep that $15 a month rate for the data access charge once the promotion ends or if your plan will automatically revert back to the regular rate of $25.  So, what do you think out there?  Is this something that would make you want to jump ship and switch to Sprint?
