If a leaked document is anything to go by, Sprint will stop offering two-year phone contracts to its new subscribers starting from today. The carrier, however, will continue to offer tablets on two-year contracts.
For “select customers,” Sprint will offer its two-year agreement on a “reactive basis”. As of now, it is still unclear whether Sprint will renew contracts for customers with 2-year contracts or simply recommend them to shift to its newer plans.
Over the last couple of years, all major carriers in the United States have done away with two-year contracts. T-Mobile was the first one to start the trend in 2013, which was followed by Verizon in August last year.
AT&T also announced late last month they will be doing away with two-year contracts starting from today, and now, Sprint has finally joined them. The Now network had announced its plans on doing away with two-year contracts towards the middle of last year, though it did not specify when it planned to implement it.
