T-Mobile has stepped up its effort to attract more subscribers with its latest referral program that directly targets the customers of its competitor, Sprint. Both T-Mobile and Sprint are major service providers in the US and the move by T-Mobile will be intensifying the competition between both brands. T-Mobile's referral program offers a full year free unlimited LTE data upgrade for Simple Choice customers or $10 credit each month for twelve months for those who are already in a unlimited plan, for both the referrer and the referred party.
This latest offer by T-Mobile comes after Sprint unveiled a new pricing strategy for individual and family plans last week. The Sprint Family Share Pack, promises twice the amount of data compared to present offers in the market as well as allowing sharing of data across up to 10 lines, covering multiple mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
T-Mobile in its promotion asks its customers to participate in the referral program to benefit from the free data offer while 'rescuing' existing Sprint customers whom it says are left out in Sprint's new offer that is reserved only for new subscribers. According to Sprint, the program, which is available only for post-paid customers, will commence next Friday, 29th of August and referred persons have 30 days to accept the referral and activate their service with T-Mobile to qualify for the offer.
