There are a several similarities between Sprint’s new Framily program and the the multilevel marketing business model of mobile carrier Solavei. But Sprint has adopted the best aspects of Solavei’s model while avoiding the worst.

ACN’s wireless arm Flash may not have the most compelling rates today, but with a new deal with Devicescape it may be setting the stage for cheaper data plans in the future.
