Sprint to be Only iPhone 5 Carrier with Unlimited Data plans
A new report from within the industry has surfaced online offering a number of snippets regarding the iPhone 5 including its possible release date and the inclusion of the device by the Sprint network as a joint venture to compete against the ever-growing Google Android range.
Along with directly claiming that Sprint will indeed be stocking the new iPhone 5, the report has also gone on to claim that Sprint will be the only carrier to offer the device with unlimited data plans, giving them an enormous advantage over the competition.
Verizon and AT&T currently offer the iPhone among their ranges, though have fully capped data plans or those with set limits when it comes to downloads. In the case of Verizon, the cheapest plan for the iPhone 4 is $30 per month for 2GB of usage, while AT&T offer theirs for $15 per month for 200MB of data.
Needless to say, if the report proves accurate then this could be exactly what Sprint needs to attract scores of customers away from the other major networks and directly toward their ranks, particularly if it also proves true that the iPhone 5 will not offer LTE compatibility – one of the biggest draws of both Verizon and AT&T.
