Dito...

 

Hopefully its more than the leaked info last night on Sprint going hard into business accounts.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure there will be more than business account targeting. That isn't going to drive the turn around alone, that's for sure.

Something might be happening fast. Im listening to marcelo's town hall meeting and he is talking down framily for being to complicated. He keeps mentioning new simplified plans but isnt giving details. I also just found out stores are closing early Monday for mandatory training. Id guess that new plans are coming within a week.

Wow, that is fast!  Yeah, if people are having problems understanding the plans, then going more simple is probably a good idea.

You also have to figure Masa and Marcelo are thinking there is an opportunity to get out there with the new plans ahead of the iphone 6 launch. With a lot of iphone 5 users (heck I still know plenty of people on the 4s) coming off contracts and looking to upgrade, there is a window here.

Just speculation and wishes...(note: I'm on an 8 line framily plan now with several family members, we managed to merge them into one framily, got the right CSR apparently), but I really hope they add some tethering into the plans, as well as simplified ways to make the per line easier to understand. The framily was a good idea had it been done before market saturation, but now it's just hard to understand the purpose.

I completely agree with all of the comments from the members here, that is a really good article! The writer does make a lot of good points!

I agree!

 

I hope that new plans are rolled out! The Framily Plans does not work for me.

 

Two problems I personally have with the Framily Plans is the confusion, and the fact that with only two lines of service (one Android phone...mine, and one feature phone...my father's), the Framily Plans do not save me any money and would actually be more expensive for me. Also, I don't have a lot of family, and I refuse to recruit completely strangers.

While I do agree Framily is WAY too complicated, it does save you lots of money if you spend the time recruiting.

 

For instance, my Framily is 8/10 currently and it really wasn't that difficult to achieve. You just have to work with Sprint to merge existing customers, if you're wanting to go that route.

 

I'm very happy with Framily, now that we've gone through the work of getting everything setup.

 

Again, I do agree. Sprint just needs to make it easier overall. It is a great plan, just frustratingly over-complicated.

i wouldn't be surprised if they just drop the recruiting stuff and everybody goes to $25 a month with the options for $10 for 3 GB and $20 for unlimited.

Personally...I don't think it's complicated per se....I just think it's complicated for the average joe to comprehend....If you read how it works, it's not that hard to grasp, but the general population (Outside of S4GRU) Make it complicated...

If Sprint drops prices any more, I will probably make sense to finally move off SERO

When the Sprint reps don't even know all of the ins-and-outs of how Framily works and you have to call back over and over again to get things done correctly, it is over-complicated - by any standard.

This is all looking very good! I really hope he starts using his twitter account too.

 

Sounds like he has some great plans, and they are acting on them ASAP.

    • You are missing the point, behavior is an action. There are two separate actions occurring here: one lobbying and two government instituting a policy.  To lobby the government for anything isn't anti-competitive because everone can do it. It is hyper competitive actually. The government actions are the anticompetitive element in this process. Another way to put it is that cable companies, through lobbying, express a desire for the government to take anti-competitive action but the government is the one taking the anti-competitive action, and the only institution that actually can be anti-competitive.  The government shouldn't have this kind of authority and this example you gave of government using it's force to create anticompetitive market would not be possible if it did not or if the voters didnt accept that this is a proper thing for the government to do. 
    • Give me a fucking break.  Stop with your "alternative facts" bullshit. This is documented anti competitive behavior from the telecom industry by leading the charge, funding, and actually writing anti municipal broadband legislation -- out of fear of public works treading on its private enterprise rent seeking. https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/01/who-wants-competition-big-cable-tries-outlawing-municipal-broadband-in-kansas/ AJ
    • Sounds like That is local government using force to me and the best solution would be to disallow municipalities from having this kind of power. The anticompetitive behavior comes from the government here.  Nice Try though. 
    • How do markets work in your mind? No company can do whatever it wants. No company can restrict new entrance by force without the government.  So in this fantasy world of yours, in which cable companies are omnipotent, then you would be right. That just isnt the way the world works.     In any case the point I made from google fiber came from Schmidt himself.   His answer on Google fiber starts at 37:45 Note, he didnt complain about competitors,  he complains about Local government.
