Sprint is hoping to merge with T-Mobile, but the agreement still has several hurdles to clear. Until then, it’s business as usual for Sprint customers. The carrier offers a range of unlimited data plans, plus a 2 gigabyte plan for those who don’t need much data. Sprint’s network generally falls in the third place among the Big Four, according to the latest RootMetrics report.
