Sprint low bandwidth network

I've misplaced a contact. A sales guy from Sprint was talking to me about a low bandwidth wireless offering they had. I seem to recall it might have even been in the 10s of kilobytes. I didn't have any need for such a service at the time - low bandwidth but very low cost too. But I might have use for it. Does anyone know what that network might be called? I've scanned all the emails and I don't want to a bunch of dialing to find a new Sprint rep. Just interested in what the technology might have been they were referring to.

Looks like Sprint's low is 100 MB

That speed is very old tech, like 9.6 K W/S or 14.4
This is akin to FAX speed - very slow.
AT&T used to do that for option to add/connect laptop to any SmartPhone - that never worked.
Price was not low, but over $40/mo added to phone already having costly 'unlimited' service, (including internet)
If that is something you want (PC to use, piggyback phone's connection)
then you know more what to ask your local sales office. Or one of their competitors
Note it requires their tech staff for setup and could be costly unless you are on the road a lot and would otherwise be without internet access. It would also be subject to capability of your phone.... or theirs.

Oh I see - Sprint has a 100 megabyte plan for tablets $10. But I don't see where the speed it described.

If the Sprint network works for you, you might consider Ting.  Ting only charges you for the data you actually use and they use the Sprint network.
