Sprint Rumored to Offer Apple Unlimited Data Service Plan

Don Emmert/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Sprint Nextel Corp. may be the latest wireless carrier to team up with Apple Inc. in a unique way in an attempt to distinguish itself from rivals AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

Bloomberg News reports that Sprint is planning to offer Apple’s iPhone 5 unlimited data service plans, beginning in October.

Under the deal, Sprint—the third-largest U.S. wireless carrier—will become the country’s only operator to offer the iPhone unlimited data service for a flat fee in an effort to pull customers away from AT&T and Verizon Wireless and to Sprint instead.

Kansas-based Sprint has reported sales losses for 15 consecutive quarters as it has struggling to compete against larger rivals.
