While we know almost nothing about the upcoming iPhone release that’s doubtless going to happen later this year, we do know that Sprint will keep offering unlimited data. Talking to CNET,CEO Dan Hesse confirmed that the unlimited data plans are set to stay.
“I’m not anticipating the unlimited plan would change by that point,” he said. “That’s our distinctive differentiator.” Hesse believes that unlimited data is enough to seduce users from other carriers — and with the very real possibility of the new iPhone being LTE enabled, you’ll burn through data caps all the faster.
Hesse claims not to know if the new iPhone will be LTE, or when it’ll land, but that promise of unlimited data will certainly sway a few customers.
