New option promises group savings with separate bills
Sprint on Tuesday introduced its latest weapon in the battle against other wireless providers. Called “Framily” plans (no joke), they allow groups of up to ten lines to share in the billing of service. These new plans will be offered to new and existing Sprint customers when they take effect on January 10. Unlike plans from other carriers, Sprint lowers the cost per user based on the number of people in the plan
For one line of service, new Sprint customers pay $55 per month per line for unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data. For each additional new Sprint customer that joins the Framily group, the cost per person goes down $5 a month up to a maximum monthly discount of $30 per line. Build a group of at least seven people and everyone gets unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data for $25 per month per line (pricing excludes taxes and surcharges).
Each member in the collective can tailor their plan to match their needs.
For only $20 per month per line, Framily members can buy up to unlimited data plus get a new phone every year. Plan members can share the savings, without the hassle of sharing a bill. Each account can be billed separately. Unlimited features are while on the Sprint network.
The Sprint Framily Plan will be available in Sprint company-owned stores and Sprint third-party dealers beginning Friday, Jan. 10. Visit www.sprint.com/framily for more information.
While this sounds incredible on the surface, getting that many people together could prove to be a task. Not too many of us have that many family members. Then again, since it allows friends to get in on the action, it could be worth the effort!
