Discount on Sprint Hotspot Plans

Is an employer discount still available on the new hotspot plans (6Gb, 12GB, etc)? From what I'm seeing it isn't, but wondered if anyone could confirm.  If not, I really don't see how Sprint's mobile broadband plans can compete with the other carriers.

 

I currently have an old Sprint 3G card and plan where I still get a discount, and a newer AT&T LTE hotspot that I have a discount on as well.  Neither one is under contract, just month to month.

 

Was hoping to get a Netgear Zing on Sprint to replace the AT&T one, but without the discount it'll most likely end up costing me more.  On Sprint I can get the 12GB plan for $79.99/mo (plus taxes) which runs about $6.67/GB.  On AT&T, I can get the 10GB mobile share plan for $66.20/mo (plus taxes) which run $6.62/GB with my employee discount.  If I didn't have the discount on AT&T, Sprint would be better here.

 

However, overages is where Sprint kills you.  At $0.05/MB that's about $50/GB.  With the AT&T line I would pay $15/GB.  There are a few times when I have gone over, and a few other times where I probably could have but just used the Sprint 3G for a while instead.

 

I'd love to get rid of that AT&T hotspot and get the new Zing on Sprint.  Without the discount however, it just doesn't add up for me.
