In short: Sprint is offering up a year of free service on its unlimited plan, for those that are switching from AT&T or Verizon to Sprint's network. Sprint is touting that if you bring over your AT&T or Verizon smartphone to Sprint, you could save $800 in the first year, which is true, as you are getting free service. This is a really good way for Sprint to get people to switch from AT&T or Sprint, especially since you can switch and use Sprint for a year and essentially not pay a single penny to Sprint. It's a good way to check out Sprint's service and see if it's worth signing up for.
Background: Sprint has done plenty of different things to get people to switch from other carriers over to its network. These have worked to varying degrees, including the half off of the price of AT&T and Verizon's plans. Sprint has been struggling over the past decade or so, but within the past few years, Sprint has been able to cut back on costs and also bring in more customers, to help get themselves back into the black. This promotion here - which is a limited time promotion - should help them bring over even more customers.
Impact: If you are looking to make the jump over to Sprint, you can do so by hitting the link down below. It'll walk you through getting set up and switching over to Sprint. This plan that you'll be on does included unlimited talk, text and data. It'll be free through November 2019, or whenever your one year is up. Afterwards, the price will jump to $60 for the first line, $40 for the second line and $20 for the remaining lines. Keep in mind that this is only for those that are on AT&T and Verizon, and not applicable to those on T-Mobile.
