Sprint has just debuted their commercial that will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday, and it targets Verizon. Which is no surprise, given that Verizon is the number one wireless carrier in the US, it's a good reason for many of its competitors to go after them. This commercial, which is likely much shorter than what will air during the Super Bowl, basically says that there's no reason to go to extreme measures to get out of paying your Verizon bill, and that you can easily switch to Sprint. Touting that Sprint is much cheaper and their network is within 1% of Verizon's. What makes the commercial even better is the fact that Sprint has Verizon's old "Can you hear me now?" actor Paul Marcarelli telling the Verizon customer that it's easy to switch to Sprint.
Sprint, as well as T-Mobile, has been working to cut out fees and overages in the past year or so. With both of them offering unlimited data plans so that users that use a ton of data can do just that, use a ton of data without needing to worry about how large their bill will be next month. Verizon, still charges $10/GB unless you are okay with using slower speeds. And they also have various data buckets, and don't offer unlimited data. In fact, they are the only ones that don't offer unlimited data right now, surprisingly unlimited data plans have made a comeback in the wireless industry.
The Super Bowl takes place this Sunday on FOX and everything gets started around 6:30PM EST. Sprint is just one of many companies that will be debuting their own commercial during the big game. Google and T-Mobile are others in the tech world, but of course Budweiser and all the normal favorites will be there with their own. Super Bowl commercials are usually some of the best commercials you'll ever see, and that is mostly due to the fact that companies are paying millions for such a short period of time. In fact, it's reported that Google is spending $5 million on a single commercial to advertise Google Home. You can check out the sneak peak of Sprint's new commercial below.
