Sprint is pressing down harder on the rate-cut gas pedal.
For the second time, the carrier is extending a promotion offering 50 percent off almost all of the current postpaid-rate plans published by Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile to consumers who switch to Sprint. Sprint also pays switching fees up to $650 per line.
The half-off promotion launched late last year and was later extended to Feb. 11.
On top of that, the company on Friday is launching a limited-time promotion in which families can get four lines of unlimited talk, text and high-speed data for $37.50 per line, excluding the cost of a phone, for a total of $150/month, down from a regular $250/month.
The plan also features 3GB of mobile hotpot access and global roaming with unlimited 2G data speeds and text messaging in select countries.
The promotion counters a similar promotion launched by T-Mobile in early February.
The new plan looks like this:
Limited-Time Unlimited Promotion
–First line for $75
–2 lines for $120
–3 lines for $150
–4th line: free
–Lines 5-10: $30 per line
That compares to the regular unlimited plan below:

–First line for $70
–2 lines for $130
–3 lines for $190
–4 lines for $250
“Sprint is going to continue to offer the best value for unlimited plans for our customers,” said CEO Marcelo Claure.
