Today, Sprint announced a new promotion that gives its customers “double the data” offered by AT&T and Verizon for the same price. The carrier’s 32GB, 40GB and 60GB Family Share Pack plans will change to 60GB, 80GB and 120GB at no additional charge. Similar to AT&T’s newest promotion, Sprint’s deal also comes to an end on October 31st.

Not limited to consumer accounts, Sprint will be extending this offer to its business customers starting on Friday, October 3rd. Enterprise accounts will have the chance to jump from 40GB, 60GB, 80GB, or 100GB of data to 80GB, 120GB, 160GB, and 200GB at no extra cost until the end of October.

In addition to doubling down on data, Sprint is waiving the monthly access charge on smartphones, tablets and hotspots through 2015 for customers transferring their number from a different carrier. This offer requires a service agreement with 20GB of data or more and consumer accounts will need to purchase their device through Sprint’s Easy Pay or its new iPhone for Life plan.

America’s Newest Network

Sprint has already built its 4G LTE network to serve more than 255 million people, with more on the way making it easy for customers to enjoy data on their devices.

But that’s not all. In addition to Sprint’s all new 3G network and its 4G LTE network, Sprint is deploying Sprint Spark, a technology designed to greatly improve the performance of video and other bandwidth-intensive applications, including new generations of online gaming, virtual reality and advanced cloud services. It enables stutter-free video chat on-the-go and mobile gaming that leaves lag behind.

Available today in 27 markets across the country, Sprint Spark is an enhanced LTE service that’s built for data and designed to deliver average wireless speeds of 6-15Mbps and peak wireless speeds of 50-60Mbps today on capable devices, with increasing speed potential over time. Sprint plans to reach 100 million Americans by year-end with the service.2
