Sprint has announced a new low-cost unlimited plan for just $20. Before you go rushing off to your nearest Sprint store you’re going to want to keep reading, because this plan is very bad.


Sprint calls the plan “Starter Unlimited Data.” Take note that the word “unlimited” is included in the name, we’ll come back to that later. For $20 per month, you get unlimited LTE data…for the first 1GB. After that you’re slowed all the way down to 2G for the remainder of your billing cycle. Sound unlimited to you?

If you compare this plan to other carriers it’s actually pretty good. It’s cheaper than AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon’s unlimited plans, but there’s one big difference: none of those carriers actually call their plans “unlimited.” That’s what makes this plan so bad. You think you’re getting unlimited LTE data, but if you start streaming Netflix or Pandora on the go you will be stuck on horrendous 2G in a heartbeat.
Sprint is bound to run into some very upset customers. Sprint’s 2G network is extremely slow. You’re looking at speeds of 300Kbps, compared to the 13Mbps on LTE. That’s a difference everyone will notice. What do you think about this new plan from Sprint?

Sprint Restructuring To Adapt To Necessary Layoffs






If you keep up with carrier news, you likely already know that Sprint hasn’t been having the most wonderful time lately, even deciding they will most likely sit out the incredibly important FCC auction of low-band 600MHz spectrum. With a bailout from parent company Softbank nowhere in site, cuts needed to be made somewhere. Since new network initiatives are in place to keep the company relevant and competitive, cutting funding for network buildout would likely be corporate suicide. These budget cuts will obviously result in layoffs, but CEO Marcelo Claure hasn’t been very clear on how many jobs will be affected. What has been made clear is that, in order to keep a passable level of customer service despite the layoffs, Sprint will be doing some restructuring of their customer service and sales teams with more of a focus on regional unification rather than different teams for different types of customers.
Right now, Sprint has different teams for large businesses, small businesses, postpaid customers and prepaid customers, including through their MNVOs Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile. With the new “One Sprint” initiative, teams will instead be divided into regions, breaking up the United States into four areas with nineteen key markets a pop, with each of those segments having their own head honcho directing all the action going on within their sphere. Sprint is looking to cut around $2 billion in costs next year, so it’s not hard to imagine a few thousand jobs going down the tubes in this restructuring. Whether this new structure will be permanent or will only last until Sprint sees better days has not been stated. The new approach was tested on a small scale in Chicago and Claure was quite pleased with how it turned out, prompting him to design a nationwide version to work around the incoming budget cuts.
Tracy Nolan, leader of the Chicago effort and the market in Wisconsin, will help to oversee the shift to the new structure while continuing to oversee his designated markets. In addition, two new high-level execs will be coming on board to help with the process. Jay Spaulding, who will be moving to a new mystery role, will be replaced by AMC Theatres alumni Christina Sternberg as chief of staff directly under Claure. The new senior VP of supply chain will be Ramon Colomina of Softbank and Brightstar fame, who will also be playing the role of chief procurement officer for a while. The new structure may take a bit to catch on, but Claure is hoping customers won’t end up with much to gripe about once it’s all said and done.

Sprint Intros the LTE Plus Network, Available Today in 77 Major Markets


Today, Sprint announced the LTE Plus network, a combination of its advanced cellular technologies and cell site optimization. In the announcement, written by Sprint’s CTO Dr. John Saw, the carrier lays out the benefits of LTE Plus, which should have customers seeing faster service with double the network capacity and speed, stronger service with “smart antenna technology,” and more reliable service thanks to the utilization of three bands of spectrum (1.9GHz, 800MHz, and 2.5GHz).
With carrier aggregation and a signal processing technique called beamforming, customers located near cell edges and indoors should see increased speeds and reliability of service, with peak speeds in excess of 100Mbps on devices that are capable of such data speeds. According to Dr. Saw, Sprint is proud to be one of the first operators in the world to roll out two key functionalities of LTE Advanced: Carrier aggregation and Beamforming.
Benefits 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
Markets of Availability
As shown in the below map, Sprint’s LTE Plus network is available today in 77 major markets. A few of the big ones listed are the SF Bay Area, San Diego, New York City, North LA, Portland, Seattle, San Antonio, Orlando, Washington DC, Chicago, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, and basically all other major cities within the United States, including parts of Hawaii.
This announcement is coupled with Sprint’s “biggest wireless offer in history,” which cuts Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile rate plans by 50%. Naturally, there is plenty of tiny text to read along with these offers, so be sure to read up on that post, too, if you plan on making the switch to Sprint.

We'll most likely be taking advantage of this deal. I'm done with T-Mobile; called to get my billing situation fixed and was told it should actually be HIGHER than what I'm paying. There is zero excuse that a two 16GB iPhone plan should be costing close to $100/person.

Project Fi, dude. Sprint is absolute trash; you will notice the decrease in network service going from TMo to Sprint.

There is a reason Sprint is slashing it's prices and still can't gain market share

I haven't noticed any speed increase at all. That might be because I am way over the cap they set last month.

Layoffs begin at Sprint



The layoffs at Sprint have begun.
Chief executive Marcelo Claure said in his weekly newsletter emailed to employees that “job reductions” had started to take place. He wasn’t specific about when they began, but his earlier references to job cuts have lacked any sense of when they would start.
A Sprint spokesman said in an email that he had no news to offer.
Claure and other executives have said job cuts would be part of the planned $2.5 billion in spending cuts underway. They have declined opportunities to say how many might lose work.
Sprint’s chairman, however, has put the job displacements “in the thousands,” according to published reports. Masayoshi Son, whose Tokyo-based SoftBank Group Corp. owns more than 80 percent of Sprint made the thousands statement in Japan a month ago.
Layoffs hit Sprint’s workforce in 2014 when the company shed 1,700 jobs, principally from reviews of its information technology, portfolio management, network and technology groups.
Claure announced a plan in November 2014 to cut 2,000 more jobs, pushing the total to 11 percent of its workforce. Sprint employed about 31,000 at the end of March, its last reported total.
The earlier cuts were part of an effort to cut $1.5 billion in spending.
Management has said that this round of spending cuts would not rely on payroll alone but look throughout the company for savings.
Chief financial officer Tarek Robbiati reiterated the plan to scrutinize all spending throughout the company during a presentation at an industry conference on Friday. He did not mention jobs.
Claure had made his comment in the newsletter as part of a discussion about these changes and others aimed at transforming the way Sprint does business. These, he said, would save money and drive growth for the company.
He announced, for example, that Tim Donahue, a 19 year employee at Sprint, would become the region president in Kansas and Missouri. The appointment is part of One Sprint, an effort to decentralize operations to allow four area presidents and 19 market or region presidents greater control in their markets.
“While the creation of the One Sprint approach will put new leaders in place and staff new organizations in the various regions, it is being balanced by our actions to make other parts of our business smaller,” Claure’s newsletter said.
He also told employees that management is “taking costs out of our business through a range of many types of actions. And yes, some of these actions will involve job reductions that already have started to take place.”
Robbiati, at the industry conference, listed several areas where he sees potential spending cuts.
He said spending on customized information technology projects was “unsustainable.” He saw savings in real estate, in reducting Sprint’s use of other networks to cover some markets, and in all elements of corporate overhead.
Robbiati also singled out one marketing cost that Sprint already has said would end, namely its 36-race NASCAR Sprint Cup Series sponsorship.
Telecom companies, Robbiati said, have an unjustified love of “fast cars” in their marketing. He said British-based Orange, a telecommunications company where he worked from 2003 through 2005, had a thing for Formula 1 racing.
“There’s no correlation between fast cars and the branding of a network. It just doesn’t make any sense,” he said.
Better, he said, to spend money where customers are making decisions, in retail stores and other sales channels, and especially locally where marketing is more effective.
“Customers remember this and probably will never remember the car that is running past them at too fast a speed to remember the little sticker that says Sprint on it,” Robbiati said.
Sprint had said a year ago that it would drop its NASCAR sponsorship when it runs out at the end of the 2016 season. In July, it said it would drop its NBA sponsorship.
Robbiati also announced that the $1.1 billion in cash Sprint was to receive from a unique funding deal had arrived Thursday. It plans to repeat the deal regularly, though in smaller amounts.
That, plus other funding Sprint has from an increased credit line with bankers and from equipment suppliers, means the company has the funding it needs for the next 12 months, he said.
Some large debts are coming due next year, however, and that has focused management on reducing spending by $2.5 billion.
“We are well funded,” he said. “Now, it’s all about cost take-out.”

Masayoshi Son has Lost More Than $3.2B Since Acquiring Sprint





Masayoshi Son, Sprint’s Chairman and CEO of SoftBank, bought Sprint back in 2013. He paid around $20 billion for about a 66% stake in the company. SoftBank had acquired numerous other companies in the past few years and had done pretty well in doing so. Son’s dream was to buy Sprint and turn it into a powerhouse. As he once stated that internet speeds in the US are way too slow for the price that Americans are paying. However the purchase of Sprint hasn’t gone over too well for Son.


In 2014, Son was attempting to also buy T-Mobile US and combine it with Sprint. The feeling here was having two smaller carriers combine, would be an easier way to compete with Verizon and AT&T, both of which are more than double the size – in terms of customers – of T-Mobile and Sprint. However, regulators blocked it, and told Son it wouldn’t happen. After he decided to pull out of that deal, Son then swapped CEO’s at Sprint. Taking Dan Hesse out of the position – although he still remains on the company’s board of directors – and putting Marcelo Claure in his spot. He left his own company, Brightstar to head up Sprint in 2014. Since Claure took over, he’s lowered prices dramatically for Sprint users, also have been working to cut costs.


During this time, Sprint dropped from the third largest carrier in the country to now the fourth, and the gap between Sprint and T-Mobile is beginning to widen. Sprint was in a pretty bad position when Son bought a controlling stake in the company, and now it seems to have gotten even worse. SoftBank’s stock dropped about 7.9% on Monday in Tokyo, making it the lowest price it’s been since SoftBank bought Spring nearly 30 months ago. Once more, Masayoshi Son has lost over $3.2 billion from his fortune in the last 12 months. Not exactly what he wanted to happen with Sprint.
Sprint isn’t the only reason that Son is losing money, and SoftBank for that matter. But it definitely is the biggest reason. Alibaba has also seen slower growth in China in the past 12 months, who is the biggest holdings for SoftBank. It appears that investors have given up hope on what is happening with Sprint and what can happen with Sprint. The company hasn’t made it public when they will be announcing their Q4 (Q3 of fiscal year 2015) earnings, but it should be in the next few weeks. And it could be more bad news for Masayoshi Son and SoftBank.

Construction companies do this on a monthly basis... especially when the weather is bad.

We left because the internet speed sucked. My wife got the 5s when it was brand new and literally couldn't surf the Internet in a lot of areas of town or by our house. I mean it worked for light data/google searching but anything outside of that, it blew badly. I kept having disconnected calls in my house and had to plug in a sprint booster for my house so I could make reliable calls and I live in Olathe so I shouldnt have signal problems. I would always have 3 bars of signal and I would take the call and it would drop, not just my phone but my wife's, my neighbors too. I could see the damn tower not too far away.

I remember doing speed tests and on my wife's sprint iPhone we would get 450kb download and my sprint iPhone got 600kb in our house, go downtown and I would get 10mb. My job switched to Verizon for my phone and my wife got att due to her work discounts, I pull about 8mb at home and she pulls 7mb. Night and day change.

Don't know what the speeds are like in Olathe, but this is what I just pulled by the stadiums. You probably left when they were upgrading their network.

Id be interested to see what you get when your in a bigger city. I left them living in Atlanta because my average speeds were well below 1Mbs. Usually about 100k. It got much better when I would go visit our practices out in the burbs but nobody is out there so it would have made sense.

If I got LTE it would be a whopping 3-4Mbps, but that was only like 20% of the time.

Sprint speeds have changed a lot in the last couple of years. Used to be completely worthless.

What about downtown?

My issue was always in a city itself (when I was traveling for perceptive). It seems their towers in congested areas were always overloaded.

True fucking story.
Can confirm.

There are several people I work directly with that have been laid off 4, 5, 6 times. They just wait it out and keep coming back for some odd reason.

Ah, well good on them. Unfortunately it triggered me to go to pre-paid and I get a better service level for less money now, only catch is I am on the hook for my phone but Im fine with that as, in the long run, its cheaper.

I might halfway be back on them if Google gets Fi working for Apps accounts.
