Sprint Nextel has revealed that it will offer Long Term Evolution (LTE) services through its two existing pre-paid brands, Virgin Mobile USA and Boost Mobile. The move is expected to significantly lower the cost of the carrier’s 4G service, effectively throwing down the gauntlet to larger rivals AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless – neither of which currently offers LTE on a pre-paid basis. According to Fierce Wireless Virgin Mobile will sell the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE Android smartphone for USD299.99, which can be used in conjunction with its ‘No-Contract Beyond Talk’ unlimited data and messaging plan, which starts at USD35 per month. Boost will sell a pair of LTE-capable smartphones, namely: the HTC One SV Android smartphone (USD299.99) and the Boost Force Android (USD199.99).
