Where is the closest Sprint?
If we speak about the biggest providers of mobile communication, we must mention the Sprint Corporation. It’s the fourth-biggest provider of cellular services that covers all the American territory. It provides services for more than 50 million customers. Sprint operates around 4,000 locations – almost 2,000 shops are run by the dealers; the rest are corporate.
The story of Sprint appearing on the market is rather long. It all started with two telephone companies – Brown Telephone Company and Southern Pacific Railroad. After the Great Depression, Brown Telephone Company created with other three organizations the company “United Utilities” (later the name was changed to United Telecommunications). At that time, Southern Pacific Railroad also decided to change its title, and soon it became Sprint (or Southern Pacific Railroad Internal Networking Telephony). In the 1980s, one of the leading telephone organizations during the Bell System times, General Telephone & Electronics Corporation, bought Sprint and later united with United Telecommunications. Firstly, the new creation had the title “United Telecom”, but soon it was renamed Sprint Corporation. Nowadays, Sprint is a part of one of the top wireless communication providers – T-Mobile.
Sprint can offer its customers several calling plans – Unlimited Basic, Unlimited Plus, Unlimited Premium, Sprint Unlimited Kickstart, and Sprint 2GB plan. The Unlimited Basic plan comes with limitless calls, SMS, and data. It also includes a subscription to Hulu, communication services in Mexico and Canada, and sending messages abroad. The starting price of the Unlimited Basic is $60 for one line. If you add more lines, you need to pay $100 per month.
The Unlimited Plus plan contains several additions to the Unlimited Basic. With the basic plan, you can stream videos to 480p. In Unlimited Plus, the streaming limits are bigger – 1050p. If you use Sprint in Mexico or Canada, with Unlimited Plus, you’ll get 10GB of LTE data (the basic plan has 5GB data). This calling plan also provides you with great figures for listening to music and playing games - 1.5Mbps for music and 8Mbps for games. To switch to Unlimited Plus, you have to pay $70 per month.
The Unlimited Premium plan has all features of the two above-calling plans but comes with something more. This plan includes limitless calls, messages, LTE data for America, Mexico, and Canada. Here’s the great news for video-streaming lovers – the Unlimited Premium allows stream Full HD videos. If you switch to this Sprint plan, you’ll also receive a subscription on such platforms as Hulu, Amazon Prime, Lookout Premium Plus, and Tidal Premium. The starting cost is $80 for a month.
The above calling plans are costlier. But Sprint also has other simpler plans. The Sprint Unlimited Kickstart plan comes with limitless data if you browse or use social media. If you like to listen to music and play games, the Sprint plan figures are the next - 500Kbps for music and 2Mbps for games. International roaming is accessible for 200 places. The cost of the Sprint Unlimited Kickstart is $35 per month.
In case you just want to use your mobile phone for calling and sending messages and don’t need to use the Internet so much, then the Sprint 2GB plan will be enough for you. This plan is worth $40 per month.
