American wireless major Sprint has revealed Unlimited Freedom for Business, offering unlimited talk, text and data at a low price.

For businesses with global operations, unlimited international text has also been included from the U.S. to international countries alongside global roaming plans of the network.

Features of the Unlimited Freedom for Business include:

# Monthly charges of $55 for the first line, $35 for the second line, $25 for lines 3 to 10, and $35 for additional lines

# Unlimited talk, text, with unlimited mobile optimized streaming videos, cloud streaming gaming and music and unlimited 4G LTE data

# 5GB of 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot, VPN and P2P access

Also updated were the Business Share More Plans, while Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and Network Reliability plans by Sprint were revealed.

The carrier enhanced its Sprint Business Share More plans, claiming better access to the right amount of monthly shareable data virtually for the user, ranging from 20GB for 10 lines to 500GB for unlimited lines.

The plan is intended to meet growing business needs while accommodating size or data demand changes in a business. Also, unused data can now be carried forward for the next month usage adding to the regular plan data allowance.

The MaaS offering comes in an all-in-one solution pairing the devices with flexible data plans, alongside extended warranty with account support, offering custom setup for a predictable monthly price per user, in addition to new unlimited data options available across all premium and iconic smartphone options.

Customers signing up for Unlimited Freedom will experience reliable network from the carrier, claims the Sprint with its analysis of drive test data from Nielsen, covering the top 106 metropolitan markets in the U.S., showing that Sprint beats T-Mobile in reliability and performs within 1 percent of AT&T and Verizon.

Sprint has also offered to cover switching fees up to $650 per line via an American Express Rewards Card after online registration and new phone activation.

Previously, Sprint announced Global Wireline Business Unit for the enterprise market.

With the current situation where subscriber growth among wireless carriers is projected to grow 2 percent to 3 percent through 2018 according to S&P Capital IQ estimates, Sprint and T-Mobile have been slashing prices and announcing promotional strategies to compete with rivals Verizon and AT&T.

Sprint had previously announced an expected operating income for the year ending March 2017 to be $1 billion to $1.5 billion, increasing from the $310 million in operating income posted for the year ended on March 31 2016.
