Onion Article: "Sprint’s New Long-Distance Relationship Plan Offers Decreased Minutes Each Month"


Recommended Posts

A little humor from The Onion:

NEW YORK—Touting it as a cost-effective and more customized option for many subscribers, Sprint this week announced a new wireless calling plan for people in long-distance relationships that offers a decreasing number of minutes each month. “Starting with 500 shared anytime minutes that gradually dwindle on a month-by-month basis, our first-of-its-kind long-distance relationship plan offers a great value for customers living in a different city than their significant other,” Sprint spokesperson Meredith Kane said of the no-contract plan, which also offers a diminishing texting option and instant voicemail deletion. “Our subscribers will love the ability to use unlimited FaceTime for the first three months and then pay a lower fee as they slowly cut back on video calls to maybe every other week. Best of all, they can gradually rededicate the 500 MB of data they use for sharing sexually explicit photos with someone 1,500 miles away to someone in their local area at no additional cost.” Kane went on to say that even if customers decide to terminate their long-distance plan, they will still have access to a complete archive of all photos and texts that they can obsess over as often as they want.

Marcelo sure is getting innovative! I hear Legere is looking into Hookers for Uncarrier 10.0 to out-do Marcelo. ;)

    • I was down in southern TN last week when the update hit and then noticed that all of a sudden when my brother and I drove back down to Huntsville - knew I'd never seen the UC addendum before, now I know why.
    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:  Edit:  Two more confirmed locations of conversion sites:  T-Mobile eNB 875316 Location: 40.7314623618499, -73.82849493999701   T-Mobile eNB 875868 Location: 40.75304305996773, -73.85311593221213
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use.
