Also, I just don't watch a lot of video on mobile. That said, if you're on the Note7 that T-Mobile and the other carriers are pimping out, I think a lot of people are going to be able to tell the difference between 1080p and 480p. I can on the Note5 and that is a similar screen.

 

That said I doubt they upsell much video.

That's what they bank on, most users can't tell the difference and don't want movies on their phone all day long.

I'm reading more into the Reddit responses and I am seeing a lot of "I'm on a pretty sweet Simple Choice plan and I'm going to be mad if I ever get forced off it." That's a fair point. How long do the current plans stay around for grandfathered users? In the conference call Braxton Carter mentioned that "Simplicity drives cost reductions" so if that is the modus operandi I could see where people on the Magenta side are concerned.

The way I see it, they're now fully in violation of net-neutrality.  You want unthrottled data for certain services?  Pay up.

 

I disagree, they are actually doing all video traffic control unless you pay more, so it falls under network management.

I think this all makes sense now. Sprint has been testing this type of plan for a while now to see how people react to them. T-Mo caught wind of it/ the national release and wanted to beat Sprint to it first.

Right. The Sprint ones could have been released the day the new iPhone is released so John decided to one up him and Marcelo may have did a last minute one up on John. Who really knows for sure.

Goes to show that Marcelo isn't afraid to take risks with these kind of offers.

Sprint had these "Freedom" plans in trials in Milwaukee and Boston. They must have been pleased with the results, so why not pull the trigger now.

 

Loving the new nimble Sprint.

It's entertaining to see the back and forth here coming from real competition. That said, we're the winners as consumers with better choices and better rate plans.

I agree 100% Marcelo saw the vision and took the risk.

Um, you look at Magenta reddit yet? That would be the risk - that loyal customers get alienated. I didn't see this coming, I must admit. That said, the anger is clearly shown over there.

You've been on this forum for years, so you should know what the old Sprint was like.

Yeah -- it seems this was the straw that broke the backs of their faithful followers.

 

Which I suspect is why john didn't have this go into effect today.

 

But yeah pass the popcorn gifs lol.

I just don't see the risk in offering the Unlimited Freedom plan. A plan that will be welcomed by a majority of Sprint users.

The risk isn't on the customer here.

 

It's on SoftBank as it will decrease profits in theory

In terms of Framily customers, it doesn't decrease profits, because I'd gladly pay $15/mo more for 5GB of tethering. 6GB on Framily is $50/mo! As soon as I pay off my lease, I'm switching.

Ahhh finally!

 

Thank you for actually answering my question.

 

The risk is on Softbank and, by proximity, Marcelo..... Potentially decreasing profits.

    • Another beta update to SignalCheck Pro is rolling out! Version 4.614b will appear on Google Play sometime over the next several hours. More 5G improvements, the accent color should be fixed, and several Samsung shortcut menus were added. Samsung users, please try all of the new shortcuts and let me know which ones are useful and what they lead to. Thank you!
    • No, unfortunately I haven't seen any useful 5G info from your phone (or anyone else's LG) yet. If you get a software update and happen to find 5G before they shut it down, please try reporting again! The accent color is still in its infancy and only appears on LTE for now. I've had it on my version of SCP for several weeks, initially I didn't think anyone else would like it. Figured I'd offer it up and see what the feedback was.
    • I accidentally broke the Samsung menus when I compiled the latest release; it will be resolved in next update.   Thanks, I'll look into that.. it's all a work in progress, glad we are making some headway!   The current display format is temporary, it is just to get the data displaying reliably.. once that happens, it will get its own "block" like the connection other technologies have.
    • I forgot to post this this morning. Seems that Sprint will offer the V60. My buddy at Sprint HQ says more will be said Monday. Lets see if this pans out.   TS out
    • Another suggestion, can you place the 5G info above the neighbor cell list? In dense urban areas with 5x CA there will easily be enough neighbor cells to push the 5G info off the screen. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
