According to the article, which cites promotional material it received from the cellco, Sprint will introduce the ‘Sprint As You Go’ pre-paid brand on 25 January. The new product will compete with Sprint’s existing Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile brands and offer two plans: a USD70 per month plan for smartphones offering unlimited voice, texting and data, and a USD50 per month plan for what it terms ‘feature phones’.
