New CATA, Sprint partnership can save dealers 16% on phone bills

November 11, 2010

The CATA has signed a two-year agreement with Sprint that makes significant cell-phone discounts available to CATA dealers.

Highlights of the plan include an across-the-board 17 percent discount on business lines and lowest available pricing on equipment. Also, Sprint will cover early termination fees and provide a $100 credit for each line that is switched from a competing carrier.

Said CATA Chairman Steve Foley Jr.: "This agreement is a great example of how the CATA is expanding its offering of benefits to members. It allows dealers to consolidate and reduce cell phone costs with no expense, and perhaps a even a credit."

The CATA selected Sprint because it offers quality equipment, the largest 4G network in Chicagoland and, most important, the best pricing plans. Details of the plan include:

• 17 percent Corporate Liable NVP Discount
• Flat Rate Pricing (lowest pricing available) on equipment
• Waiving of Early Termination 
• $100 Port-In Credit per line switched over from a competing carrier
• A discretionary credit per phone purchased to bring device cost to as close to zero cost as possible, up to a maximum of $100.
• Buyback program available when ordering new HTC EVO 4G device
• Free Blackberry Enterprise Server
• Direct Wireless Account Manager & Solutions Consultant
• Dedicated Support Rep (with a minimum of 25 lines)
• Sprint’s Premier Customer Care

Sprint also would extend a 16 percent discount on all customer-liable lines, as a perk dealers can offer to their employees.
