Sprint announces cheaper $90 Family Share Pack plan that gives subscribers 12GB of data to share
On Friday, Sprint announced a new addition to its Family Share Pack plans. From now until March 31, 2016, you can pay $90 a month and receive 12GB of data that can be shared by as many as 10 lines. For this plan, Sprint is also reducing the access charge for each phone from $25 to $15. If you join Sprint from another carrier, the access charge for handsets, tablets and mobile broadband devices will be waived completely for one year, if the plan selected shares 12GB or more of data among up to ten phones. The phones must be purchased via Sprint Easy Pay or the Sprint iPhone for Life Plan.

According to Sprint, the new $90 Family Share Pack offer saves $70 a month when compared to similar Verizon and AT&T plans that offer 10GB of data for up to four lines for $160 a month. It is $10 cheaper compared to a similar T-Mobile plan for four lines that gives 2.5GB of high-speed data to each line, each month.

With its plan that cuts Verizon and AT&T customers' bills in half, and this new Family Share Pack offer, Sprint is trying to avoid the inevitable; by the end of the current quarter, it most likely will be surpassed by T-Mobile and will become the nation's fourth largest carrier. As we explained yesterday, a difference in the way that inactive MVNO customers are counted is the only thing keeping Sprint ahead of its rival at this time.

It would go up to $150 for 4 lines. $90 for plan plus the $15 access fees. They are basically waiving the access fees for one year then you pay them the next and so on.

Meh... Sprint.... I wonder if they've stopped sucking here in Seattle yet. Doesn't really matter, I'm never going back to the shackles of CDMA ever again.

I was in Seattle about a month ago and they weren't that bad. Then again I was in the airport.

How disingenuous of Sprint. All the plan's it is showing, except for it's own, include line access fees. If they were to be honest, their price would show $150 for 4 lines sharing 12GB.. at which point you're better off signing up for AT&T or Verizon. $10 more and 2GB less, but a lot more reliable service without the sh*t Sprint makes you put up with.

Lol, it should be much cheaper considering Sprint's crappy signal.

I seem to get good service with Sprint now. I traveled to the middle of nowhere in Wisconsin a few weeks ago and had LTE with 15mbps. Where I live I have Spark now. When I am with my T-Mobile friends they always seem to have issues. So many of you constantly bash Sprint. I suppose it makes you feel better to continuously "hate" on a company or person. They've made huge improvements in the last year, even six months. If you don't have Sprint anymore you shouldn't even be talking sh**. Get a life and move on from posting "hate" comments on the internet.. holy sh** people..

I agree. All the talk about how great t-mobile is I always here about their lte, which is awesome but I never hear about their coverage getting any better, and honestly that's the only thing keeping me on Sprint

T-Mobile is falling apart here in Sacramento. Sprint is definitely smashing on them here.

I found an even sweeter deal up to 6 lines with 20GB of data for $99 no monthly access fee for Sprint. Also you sign up 5 lines the sixth line is free. Email me for more info taholmes@acnrep.com.
