Sprint's Truly Unlimited Data Plan Does Have Some Conditions
Sprint, which advertises its network as being the only one to offer a truly unlimited data plan, throttles the data speeds of smartphone users that consume excessive data on its partner networks while roaming.
Dow Jones Newswire quotes Sprint CEO Dan Hesse on an investor call:
"For those that want to abuse it, we can knock them off," Hesse said at an investor conference Thursday. He said Sprint pares back data use for about 1% of users, a practice known as throttling.
