Sprint denies reports that it throttles smartphone data


Recommended Posts


Almost every one of Sprint’s recent commercials takes aim at other carriers’ data caps and throttling, while the Now Network promotes “truly unlimited” data. However, on Wednesday reports began to circulate that Sprint throttles the top 1% of unlimited data users. Sprint responded to these claims and assured customers that it is indeed the only carrier with truly unlimited smartphone data. “Sprint does not throttle any postpaid phone data users for on-network or off-network usage,” a Sprint representative posted on the company’s website. “Sprint is the only national carrier offering smartphone users truly unlimited data with no throttling, metering or overages while on the Sprint network.” The company clarified that it has various “terms and conditions which prohibit certain types of data use that may impair other customers’ usage or harm or interfere with the network.” Sprint claims CEO Dan Hesse was referring to the company’s right to terminate the service of users who violate these terms when he said “for those that want to abuse it, we can knock them off.”
