Sprint announces new Framily Plan, switches on more LTE locations

Sprint has announced the Framily Plan, a aimed at non-family groups that want to share wireless service. As customers on this plan are not expected to be living under one roof, each member is billed separately for their own line. The Framily Plan includes unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of data for $55 per month for one line of service, with the price decreasing by $5 per month for every person you add to the plan, according to Sprint:

For each additional new Sprint customer that joins the Framily group, the cost per person goes down $5 a month up to a maximum monthly discount of $30 per line. Build a group of at least seven people and everyone gets unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data for $25 per month per line (pricing excludes taxes and surcharges).

Plans can be customized within the Framily group, so every line can be tailored to the individual group member's needs. For instance, for $20 more per month per line, a member could add unlimited data to their account. For those looking to sign up for a Framily Plan, they will launch this Friday, January 10, at Sprint stores, as well as third-party Sprint retailers.

In addition to announcing the Framily Plan, Sprint also said today that they have added six new markets to the launch of Spark, which can boost data speeds on Sprint's network to a possible 60Mbps. These cities are Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio as well as Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
