Sprint’s going to offer unlimited data consumption with the iPhone 5 it will begin selling in October, Bloomberg‘s reporting.
Sprint would be the only U.S. carrier to offer an unlimited data plan for the device, since AT&T and Verizon offer it only with tiered data plans.
The companies declined to comment for the article, which cited “people familiar with the matter.”
Pricing of Sprint’s iPhone 5 plan wasn’t specified but the company offers a $100 per month plan that provides unlimited data and voice usage.
Sprint’s been rumored to be getting the next iPhone for some time but hasn’t confirmed the arrangement with Apple. Sprint is holding a high-profile press event in New York on Oct. 7, which suggests the timing in the Bloomberg story is correct.
The story also said that Sprint postponed the release of a new 4G device that was planned for September to clear the way for the iPhone.
