  1. Last week, when Marcelo Claure was appointed as the new CEO of Sprint, he noted that price cuts were coming. Just four days into the job, he's reportedly set to good on his promise by announcing that the company will be...

    Hooray for cheaper prices, it'll bring their pricing back in line with their sub-par network. T-Mo gets away with a smaller network because of lower prices. Sprint has a big network but it's slow; it's about time it cost less to compensate.

    They claim to be 'building a new network from the ground up' which they talk about like it's a good thing, but when I hear that I hear 'small network, not yet in your city.'

    Sprint should follow T-Mo and offer some other cool perks... like free international data and/or calling and texting.

    How about some price reductions for existing customers that they have been gouging for a while?

    All they have to do, it get rid of all contracts, all background checks and sell cell phone much lower and most of all unlimited data plans. Then watch everyone flock to Sprint. Okay dream is over then! Back to the real world of expensive Cell phone bills and services limited data plans!

    I've been enjoying a Sprint Unlimited Family plan for the last 6 years, with 4 phones, under $170 / month. I like never having surprises. The prices are low, but T-Mobile has attractive prices too. Compared with the top dogs (AT&T or Verizon) Sprint and T-Mobile are providing a similar service at a better price. If this new plan is "very disruptive" I can't wait to see it.

    I guess you've never had AT&T or Verizon, or you'd know what gouging really is.

    Amen to lower prices for us loyal customers. I am ready to switch if their cruddy network stays they same with current unproportional prices.

    When I hear what people pay to be "connected" I laugh. You have all been suckered

    A fair complaint. I've had good customer service and low prices. Which is about all that's keeping me a customer. My friends with Verizon enjoy their data while I'm in a dead zone in some areas. I feel like a 3rd world citizen having to beg for them to offer me a hotspot. =) It's not all bad, I just can't say it's perfect everywhere I go.

    I live in Madison, WI and to be honest I am a bit disappointed with Sprint's service since signing up about 1 1/2 yrs ago. I frequently run into dead zones while others who have US Cellular or Verizon still have fast data connections.

    Sprint has been saying for the last couple years that service in Madison will improve, but I've yet to see it.

    Fortunately, I have their Framily Plan with 9 people on the plan so my monthly bill is under $60, but I still feel like I'm getting hosed.
