    T-Mobile is set to make waves tomorrow with the new phase in their Uncarrier initiative. That doesn't mean that the other carriers are lying down though. Sprint just kicked off a new product/service and improved on of their others as well. First, Sprint just added six new markets to their new Tri-Band-LTE network initiative called Sprint Spark. The service can provide enhanced LTE speeds as high as 60Mbps, but only with a compatible phone like the HTC One Max, the upcoming LG G Flex, or the LG G2 and Nexus 5 (once they receive the proper update in the coming weeks) ~ Sprint.

    Here are the new markets:
    • Austin, Texas
    • Chicago
    • Dallas
    • Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
    • Fort Worth, Texas
    • Houston
    • Los Angeles
    • Miami
    • New York
    • San Antonio, Texas
    • Tampa, Fla.

    That's not all Sprint has going for it though. They also announced their new "Framily" plan. While the name might not win any awards for creativity, the particulars of the plan just might. They plan to allow customers to ad friends to their family plans and much more. Here's the scoop directly from Sprint,

    For the full details and press release, here are some source links below.

    Seems like a great step in the right direction. I would call $45 a month for unlimited everything a pretty decent deal.

    That IS a good deal. Hopefully this will cause Verizon to have to tighten their belts a little. I'd add FRiends to my Family plan if it meant they saved me money AND they could be billed separately. What a great concept. Instead of just referring FRiends and having them and you both not getting anything for the referral, now you BOTH win.

    I would be real interested in seeing the contract and who is actually responsible for the FRiends' bills if they themselves don't pay them though...could get REAL ugly! :icon_eek:

    Oddly enough Sprint just started the "Sprint One-up" program in response to T-Mo's no contract option and now Sprint is already ditching the One-up program and moving to this Framily group plan. :popped out:

    I already get that with Cricket. What I don't get is good customer service, but since I'm my own technician I don't need to call Cricket support for much.
