Citing unnamed sources, Bloomberg reports today that Sprint will offer the iPhone next month with unlimited data. That will immediately separate Sprint’s offering from AT&T and Verizon, which offered tiered data plans for the iPhone and other similar smartphones.
Such an unlimited data offering might help the nation’s No. 3 carrier lure customers away from AT&T and Verizon, which charge $25 and $30 for 2 gigabytes of data. AT&T has a 200 megabyte data plan for $15 per month. There have also been reports of a possible T-Mobile iPhone next month, too. T-Mobile offers a version of unlimited data, but once a user passes a certain paid data threshold, T-Mobile will slow data speeds.
A Sprint spokesperson declined to comment to Bloomberg when asked about an impeding iPhone on the service.
