C Spire introduces new unlimited data plan with cash back for tablets

RIDGELAND, Miss., March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- C Spire today launched an unlimited $25 monthly data plan for tablets that gives consumers cash back on their mobile bill when they use less data as part of a continuing effort to make the firm the easiest company to do business with in the wireless industry.

Under the plan that debuts today for existing customers and those who switch to the company's wireless unit from other mobile carriers, consumers who sign up for the unlimited tablet data plan can qualify for a $10 bill credit when they use less than 2 GB of data each month, a 40 percent savings off the regular $25 monthly tablet data plan cost.

Each unlimited data line for tablets also includes HD video streaming and mobile hotspot.  After 25 gigabytes (GB) of usage, the company may slow data speeds to protect its network and other users' experience.  C Spire carries some of the most popular tablets, including the LG G Pad F 8, iPad Pro, iPad mini 4 and the new iPad.

The tablet data plan with cash back extends a popular unlimited plan for mobile phones that was introduced by C Spire for the first time last month, according to Suzy Hays, senior vice president of Consumer Markets.  Under that plan, unlimited users can qualify for the bill credit when they use less than 2 GB of data per month. 

With the growing interest in unlimited plans and the company's long history as a leader in plan innovation, extending the flexible cash back feature for tablet data plans was a logical next step, Hays said.  "The plan flexes with customers' usage, eliminates surprise overages and ensures they don't overpay when they use less data," she said.

The new tablet unlimited data plan option comes at a time when more consumers than ever are connecting their devices to a mobile network.  In 2016, the number of mobile-connected tablets increased 26 percent, according to Cisco's Visual Networking Index, which forecasts and analyzes the growth and use of internet and IP networks.

To optimize the experience, C Spire is offering Unlimited with cash back on your bill for new tablet data lines on Device Payment Plan (DPP), for upgrades or for devices purchased separately without a contract. This makes the experience of signing up or getting a new tablet simple for customers and those who switch to C Spire.

The latest customer-focused unlimited plan with cash back for tablets is the next installment of Customer Inspired 2.0, C Spire's comprehensive customer experience and relationship management initiative aimed at helping the company deliver on its promise to provide world-class products, services and programs that are focused on simplicity and ease and designed around customer needs and desires to ensure maximum satisfaction.

"We're making tremendous progress in our efforts to make C Spire easier to do business with," Hays said, noting that the company plans to continue to regularly introduce new enhancements of Customer Inspired 2.0.
