Sprint to Introduct $10 Data Fee for all New Customers
On the 30th January this year, Sprint will introduce a $10 fee for all new costumers users of 3G data plans. The New fee will apply to new customers only although this might effect customers who come to renew their contract after the said date.
It is monthly charge and It is another way to charge users more for data. 10 percent of users are responsible for 90% of the data usage. Rather than going for the 10 percent, which we guess they can’t do if they offered the terms of the contract, Sprint seems to be spreading the charge amongst all 100% of 3G data users.
Due to the influx of mobile phones as well as 3G connected tablets, the amount of data used is going through the roof. Limits are being added on various networks to attempt to cap the usage of those who use high amounts.
Nothing in return is being given to customers in terms of speed. Basically, a 2 year agreement will now be $240 more over the course of those two years.
