New Better Choice Plans offer more data at a better value compared to

Plus, try the recently expanded LTE Plus Network – Faster than AT&T,
Verizon and T-Mobile

OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sprint (NYSE: S) knows what wireless users want: simplicity, value and a
fast, reliable network with better coverage than ever. Today, Sprint is
simplifying how wireless users can share data with the introduction of
Sprint Better Choice Plans, available nationwide on Friday, Feb. 19.
Better Choice Plans offer families more data than Verizon at a better
value, and Sprint customers can experience the power and speed of the
Sprint LTE Plus Network, which delivers faster download speeds than
AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile.1

Sprint Better Choice Plans

With Sprint Better Choice Plans, customers get unlimited talk and text
while on the Sprint Network. They simply choose the amount of sharable
data and the number of lines needed for their family. It’s that easy.
When customers reach their monthly data allotment, they will get
unlimited data at 2G speeds, so they never have to worry about overages.2
Or, they can choose the automatic data buy-up option of $15 per GB of
data, so they will never run out of high-speed data.

Sprint Better Choice Plans include Sprint Global Roaming, free unlimited
international texting from the U.S. to more than 180 countries, and a
mobile hotspot (draws from data allowance).

“With Sprint Better Choice Plans, we’ve truly simplified our wireless
data share plans,” said Marcelo Claure, Sprint CEO. “Customers can
choose the amount of data they want from extra small to extra, extra
large, and then they can add the number of desired additional lines.
This is just another example of what millions of new customers are
telling us – Sprint offers the best value and overall experience
compared to the competition.”

More Data than Verizon, Better Value

Sprint offers customers more data than Verizon for a better value. For
Verizon customers who want to switch, Sprint will cover switching fees
up to $650 per line.3

Sprint Unlimited

No one has a better price for unlimited plans including talk, text and
high-speed data among all national carriers.4 For a limited
time, families can get four lines of talk, text and unlimited data for
$37.50 per line.5

Sprint LTE Plus Network

According to Sprint’s analysis of Nielsen Mobile Performance Data, the
Sprint LTE Plus Network beat Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile by delivering
faster download speeds. Recently, the Sprint
LTE Plus Network
doubled its reach and now covers more than 150 U.S.
