Sprint launches 50% off promo and faster LTE Plus network in 77 markets across the US


Sprint 50 percent off

When it comes to winning over new customers, Sprint knows a great place to start is with those that feel they’re paying too much on other networks. That’s why they’re announcing a new 50% off promo that’s sure to entice some.

It’s not so much 50% off their service as it is letting you know that if you make the switch, you’ll only have to pay half of what you’re currently paying on Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile. Of course, there are some caveats. Sprint mentions that while most plans are covered, you’ll only get the reduced 50% off rate until 2018. Still, depending on what you’re paying now, that could add up to some huge savings.

To sweeten the deal, they’re also willing to pay up to $650 (in a reward card) in early termination fees for you to switch on over, but you’ll also have to trade-in whatever phone you’re currently using.

77 markets now receiving LTE Plus on Sprint

We know what you’re thinking, no matter how inexpensive, Sprint’s network isn’t exactly the fastest or most far reaching. That may have been true a year or two ago, but rolling out today is Sprint’s all new LTE Plus network. Launching today in 77 major markets, Sprint’s LTE Plus network uses LTE Advanced wireless technologies like carrier aggregation and antenna beamforming to deliver a stronger, faster, more reliable service to customers.

  • Faster service with double the network capacity and speed, and peak speeds in excess of 100Mbps on capable devices
  • Stronger service with smart antenna technology that extends the cell signal further at 2.5GHz
  • More reliable service utilizing three bands of spectrum – 1.9GHz for broad coverage, 800MHz for better indoor service, and 2.5GHz for even faster data speeds

Sprint, you had our curiosity — but now you officially have our attention.
