OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Because of overwhelming response to the verizon-att-and-t-mobile-rate-plans.htm&esheet=51254333&newsitemid=20160106006578&lan=en-US&anchor=biggest+wireless+offer&index=1&md5=333657c977a7c1feb8a309c9342e0bdc” rel=”nofollow”>biggest
wireless offer in U.S. history, Sprint is extending its offer to
customers from AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon and giving them the
opportunity to switch and save 50 percent off most competitors’ standard
rate plans1 through Feb. 11. Sprint also will continue to pay
switching fees up to $650 per line.
This opportunity invites customers from the competition to experience
the Sprint network that is performing better than ever – it’s faster
than Verizon and AT&T based on analysis of Nielsen
Mobile Performance data2 – and encourages wireless users
to try the new LTE Plus network, which is demonstrating peak speeds in
excess of 100Mbps in cities across the country3.
“The response to 50% off has been outstanding,” said Marcelo Claure,
Sprint CEO. “We experienced record sales during Black Friday and
continue to see high demand. After receiving such positive feedback from
customers and hearing from our salespeople about store traffic, I knew
we had to extend this exciting promotion to give even more wireless
subscribers the opportunity to experience Sprint’s award-winning network
and take advantage of the best value in wireless.”
Customers have been very pleased with the offer. “Trust me when I say
that Sprint is knocking this thing out the park,” said Paul
McNeal, Sterling, Va. “The Sprint network is as good as any other
carrier I’ve had, and you can’t beat the price.”
The plan is simple. AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon customers who switch to
Sprint will receive 50 percent off most of their current rate plan
