Sprint and Verizon jump on the double data promotion bandwagon to compete with AT&T

verizon sprint logoTo match AT&T’s latest double data promotion, Sprint and Verizon have beefed up their offerings allowing customers to pick up a ton of extra data at little to no cost. AT&T bumped up their top data packages (anything 15 GB and up) and will give customers twice as much data for free until the end of the month. Sprint and Verizon are taking a similar path.

If you are a Sprint customer on the 32, 40, or 60 GB shared data package, the carrier will give you 60, 80, or 120 GB, respectively. The 32 isn’t quite doubled, but it’s close enough to count. The plans still come with unlimited texting and calling, so if you need a ton of data on an account with multiple lines, it’s a great deal.
