“Regardless of which IoT planning stage you're in, this tool quickly and easily shows customised pricing by gigabyte for our leading IoT data services,” said Ivo Rook, Sprint SVP of IoT and product development in a statement. “By showing our customers exactly what they need to budget for IoT data services, it eliminates the guess work and highlights the confidence we have in our IoT data pricing."
Taking aim at its opponent ‘AT&T’ for alleged ‘fake 5G’ marketing, Sprint took out a full-page advert in the New York Times earlier this month. Despite being a 4G network, AT&T’s marketing strategy for its ‘5G-E’ network has irked its rivals. According to some critics, the branding is deceptive and some consumers will believe that they have early access to a 5G network. Before filing a lawsuit in February, Sprint conducted a survey where it found that 54% of consumers believed that 5G-E is the same as – or even better than – a 5G network.
