Launch Of Tablet
With the launch of the iPad mini and the fourth-generation iPad next month, Sprint will join Verizon and AT&T as the third wireless carrier to offer 4G LTE connectivity on Apple’s new tablets.
As a result, Sprint on Nov. 11 will roll out a new rate plan for 4G LTE-enabled tablets that the carrier says will offer up to 20 percent more data than its rivals. The plans will apply to all 4G LTE tablets offered by Sprint.
Price Of Tablet
Sprint will offer four 4G LTE tablet plans with monthly recurring charges: 300MB will cost $14.99, 3GB will be $34.99, 6GB will be $49.99, and 12GB will cost $79.99. Subscribers can also opt for a one-month broadband pass at the same price if they don’t want a recurring charge.
Sprint will also offer two special plans for existing smartphone customers who want to add a tablet to their account. The first provides 1GB of data for $15 per month, while the other offers 100MB for $10 per month.
Sprint said it will waive the activation fee on all 3G/4G LTE tablets for a limited time.
The plans will drop down to 3G in areas where 4G LTE is not available. Sprint started its 4G LTE rollout in July with 15 cities, including Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, and San Antonio. Earlier this week, it fired up its ultra-fast network in several new markets in Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, and Texas, and is now available in 32 markets.
Rival Verizon just surpassed 400 4G LTE markets, while AT&T is available in 77.[ Source :- Pcmag ]
