According to a new report which has been circling this week, U.S telecom network Sprint has confirmed that it does have plans to offer its customers unlimited data packages when its 4G (LTE) network eventually launches publicly.
The report is particularly interesting in the wake of ongoing rumors surrounding Apple’s possible plans to bring next-generation wireless technologies to the iPhone.
TechHog (via Engadget), reports that, upon giving a reply as to whether the network would ever offer unlimited data to its customers upon the launch of its 4G LTE network – (in relation to the launch of LG’s Viper 4G, which becomes available for pre-order on the network on April 12) – the spokesperson reportedly responded:
You are correct, LG Viper 4G LTE will be available on Sprint’s network featuring unlimited data.
Granted, that statement could just have been relating to LG’s upcoming handset and the “offer” of unlimited data to customers who choose to purchase the device, however, the timing of the offer itself is curious — Especially considering this recent report, which could place the launch of the next-generation iPhone at WWDC12, reportedly set to take place this June.
