Latest Sprint buzz: the carrier may try to acquire T-Mobile. This follows Sprint announcing that it will offer six months of Spotify Premium to “all new and existing postpaid Sprint customers” who are on one of its “framily” plans.
This is good news, except that if you take advantage of the aforementioned offer your carrier is Sprint. Last November Consumer Reports dropped the wireless outfit to last, giving it “dismal marks” in all the major categories: reliability, texting, messaging, and overall value.
Sprint Corporate all but agreed with the assessment, telling CNet that “while the findings in the Consumer Reports’ survey are disappointing, they’re not necessarily surprising. We’ve asked customers during the past year to ‘pardon our dust’ as we build out and upgrade our network.”
You can read Phonedog consumer reviews of Sprint to your heart’s content. First three review titles: “Worst company I have ever dealt with.” “THEY SET ME UP!” and “Absolutely the worst phone service ever.”
On the other hand, Sprint does offer unlimited data plans (at least for now), and the “Framily” group subscription system does appear to make wireless more affordable. So if you are a Spotify fan and crave a commercial-free music sharing experience, the trade-off might be worth it.
