Sprint 5GB data limit
A Sprint employee has allegedly posted an internal memo on SprintUsers citing that the telecommunications giant is imposing a 5GB bandwidth limit on transfer, or 300MB per month in off-network roaming. According to the employee, the limits would see service on July 13th, and would apply to both PAM and data card plans. The note seems to indicate that Vision and PowerVision packages would still retain their respective limits, unsusceptible to the 5GB limit.
The 5GB data limit puts Sprint, which has frequently used its true unlimited wireless data as a marketing tool, on the same plane as AT&T and Verizon, both of whom currently rely on monthly transfer caps for their computer-based wireless services.
