Sprint Nextel Launches EVDO, Video, Music

By Glenn Fleishman

Sprint Nextel has announced its 3G network: Music for $2.50 per download (to the phone and to the desktop as separate downloads), video, location-based services, and data. They’re in 75 markets initially that they say covers 130 million people by mid-November. They also claim 222 airports in the U.S. with 435 by the end of the year. The service will cost $60 per month for unlimited data via a PC Card in parity with Verizon Wireless’s pricing: two-year commitment and voice account required for that price.

The folks at TechDirt note, however, that a “tethered” option as it’s called—using a phone as your data network adapter—adds just $25 per month for unlimited Sprint Nextel EVDO service. The phone plans cost as little as $15 per month with some services included, so a $40 per month unlimited EVDO subscription isn’t hard to obtain, Carlo Longino writes.

Verizon Wireless confirmed for me a few weeks ago that they offer no tethered plans: it’s either a PC Card or a non-data phone/device subscription. Sprint Nextel may have just changed that policy.
