Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 12, 2014
Sprint says they are pleased by the early response to it’s new half-off deal, according to Computerworld, Dec. 10.
Industry analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.
“The new Sprint Cut Your Bill In Half plan, seems to be a hit. It has only been in the marketplace for about a week so far, but I have been hearing strong and positive opinions from customers in the wireless marketplace.” Says Technology Analyst Kagan.
“Sprint has been struggling for years trying to find their place in the changing wireless industry. Suddenly they seem to be hitting the target with this new half-off plan. A portion of the customer universe seems to love this idea and that’s a great start.” Says Tech Analyst Kagan
“While it’s too soon to weigh in on big questions like the future for Sprint, we have to admit that if they keep this kind of thinking up, they could be at the beginning of the long awaited recovery we have all been expecting for several years.” Says Telecom Analyst Kagan.
Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO launched this new plan last week at a Sprint store. He told the media that Sprint is looking for one of the best Decembers it has ever had.
This Cut Your Bill in Half campaign is not forever. It is a holiday season offering. Customers who sign up for this now can keep the low cost plan going forward. The plan is expected to expire January 15, but may be extended.
“A Sprint recovery will take time and must come from more than just one plan, but if they keep up this thinking and keep introducing more plans of interest, their recovery could be starting right now.” says Kagan.
