    Just a few days ago we shared a leak regarding Sprint's potential new early upgrade program called "One Up." It turns out this program is real and the name fits it well. Sprint's own Dan Hesse just confirmed the program earlier today and it truly does "one up" the competition in terms of competitiveness. Here's a quote with the details,

    How many of you guys are in an area with quality Sprint coverage and would consider this offer?

    This is soooooo very tempting. I just wished Sprint would have a comparable network area size to Verizon. I would definitely ditch Big Red for Sprint.

    I would, for certain. Depends on how my upgrade goes - if I can keep my unlimited plan on Verizon, I'll stay. If not, Sprint, here I come.

    I'm with Willy. The day Verizon kicks my unlimited I'll find something else, even if the service sucks.

    They kicked my unlimited plan in February when I upgraded. It's awful. And now I'm having terrible texting problems since the update. I'm pretty dissatisfied right now.

    now if only they could ONE UP their coverage..

    seriously I'd be all OVER sprint if the coverage where I lived were better.

    soon... very very soon their coverage will have to increase.

    Sprint and TMo would have most of us as customers here if they had the coverage. Unlocked and unbloated devices easily available with BYOD and unlimited everything at good prices? Yes, please. I only stay because I get pretty much those same prices on VZ as of now.

    Sprint and TMo will never have as good a coverage map as Verizon. You know why? Because no one want to leave Verizon to try another service. The more customers, the more resources available to make their network better and bigger: see Verizon

    I think if Sprint and TMo would give us Verizon customers a free pass to try their service, they could get a lot of new customers who are weening themselves off of contract (like me).

    They could do it if they had the investment necessary from outside sources. Cingular/AT&T used to rule all, but VZ built the network and took their customers. It could certainly happen to VZ as well.
