Sprint gives Microsoft’s Always Connected PCs a giant boost with free unlimited data offer

The raison d’être of Microsoft’s Always-Connected PC initiative is being able to work anytime, anywhere, because you are always online.

At its launch, Microsoft said this would become increasingly possible due to an increasing number of carriers offering unlimited data, but at the time this idea appeared rather wistful.

Sprint today helped realize Microsoft’s vision with an offer of free unlimited data for the whole of 2018 for any user of Microsoft’s Snapdragon-powered Always Connected PC, which currently includes the Asus Novago, HP Envy X2 and Lenovo Miix 630.

When the free offer expires on December 31, 2018, and you are well and truly addicted, you can either cancel or start paying $15 per month ($10 if you enable AutoPay).

Sprint is not selling the devices itself, which accounts for the low cost of the plans, but this separation of hardware and data plans will likely mean both will overall be cheaper.

SnapDragon-powered Always Connected PCs have had mixed reviews, mostly living up to the battery life claims, but also suffering from the expected performance issues due to running x86 apps in emulation mode.

Will Sprint’s offer tempt any of our readers to jump in? Let us know below.
