Sprint Data Only MVNO, Charge is Going Out Of Business on June 30th
We never like to see an American business fail but the prepaid wireless market is extremely competitive. Charge is Going Out Of Business but it isn’t for a lack of trying. They had a very inexpensive plan that only cost customers a $3 monthly service charge or, “line access fee” as many phone companies call it. Their data cost only $13/ GB. This isn’t confirmed but we’re guessing they hoped to gain enough customers at this lost leader type of pricing that they could eventually turn a profit if the carrier gave them a volume based price break?
