Sprint's reworked Framily plans bring more data for less through 2015

Sprint's reworked Framily plans bring more data for less through 2015

Sprint has announced its new Family Share Pack plans that replaces the company's Framily plans, and the new plans offer more data for less starting on August 22. According to the Now Network carrier, Sprint's plans will offer customers as much as twice the amount of data to comparable plans from rivals.

That means that a family of four will get 20 GB of data, instead of 10 GB from AT&T and Verizon, on the $160 plan.

Additionally, through 2015, Sprint is launching a promotional plan where users get 20 GB of shared data across all their lines, up to 10 lines for a family, for $100. Additionally, as an added bonus, customers will also get an additional 2 GB of data per line for up to ten lines.

Under this plan, a customer with 10 lines will see a total of 40 GB of data that they can share through 2015 with the included 2 GB of added data per line for $100. For the same price, customer who have 4 lines will see 28 GB of data with the 2 GB promotion per line.

Sprint's new Family Share Pack plans bring more data for less

Though these plans seem cheap, Sprint Easy Pay users who don't buy subsidized phones will have to add $15 per phone for plans with the data plans of 20 GB or higher and $40 per line for users who opt to get subsidized phones.

So, what this means is that for a family plan of 10, provided you pay full price for all your phones and don't take any device subsidies, you're looking at the base $100, plus $15 for each of the ten lines, bringing your total to $250 per month. For that price, you'll see 40 GB of promotional data through 2015 along with unlimited talk and text. If you take subsidies, you're looking at a bill of $500 per month for ten lines.

Sprint says that this makes the plans a full $60 cheaper than some of its rivals and doubles the data.

If you're enticed and are looking to switch to Sprint, the carrier says that it will pay up to $350 per line in early termination fees from your current carrier.

What do you think of Sprint's new plan under its new CEO?

Yeah its their latest gimmick to get bulk people (7+) to sign up on a plan with individual accountability and billings. Strange.

You know. Friends. Family. Framily.

Yes some new phones would be great. I'm only staying with Sprint because I still have the unlimited data plan. And the fact I'm still rocking my Arrive with 7.5.

My hat is off to you, sir. My Arrive had degraded to unusable more than a year and a half ago.

trying to catch up with tmobile i suppose. I like how ATT , Sprint, and Verizon feel threatened by new Uncarrier 2.0 aggressive plans and prices of late. Consumers win at the end. Verizon is one of the most expensive mobile carrier here and everyone knows it. I'm sure ATT wil announce their own 'we too' plans soon.

I hear you loud and clear. I just added couple of lines on tmo today to our family plan bringing us to 7. All it cost me is $10 each per line. Let the competition heat up, I am loving it.

Yup, until the bottom falls out and they go out of business since they can't possibly sustain those prices while remaining profitable.

Other carriers in the world still manage to go a lot cheaper. Might want to look at ATT and Verizon's profits to see how far they could go if they wanted to.

Yup, until the bottom falls out and they go out of business since they can't possibly sustain those prices while packing the executives pockets with millions.

FTFY

Now if they would just change their name to SoftBank, we'd actually give them some respect. Just hearing/reading the name Sprint makes me cringe.

I forgot and thought it was tmo, (i was impressed) but was disappointed when I read sprint. I still hear they have poor coverage.

I hate the name SoftBank, it sounds like it should be an online bank instead of a mobile phone carrier.  I agree they should  change their name but not to Softbank. 

Gotta be one jacked up place to work. On the heels of every price cut for Sprint service, another major layoff of employees.  Watching the tube and seeing a sprint commercial got to be the first sign that you had better get your resume ready.  They are as bad as the wal-mart family.

"Framily" is correct.  Its Sprint's tagline for Friends + Family = Framily...you can group your friends & family into one discounted plan.
