Sprint To Launch Music Download Service

2005-08-17 09:47:00

The newly-merged Sprint Nextel will launch a mobile music download service before the end of the year, the company told the Reuters news service Tuesday.

The company's chief operating officer, Len Lauer, indicated that the company could charge $2 per downloaded song. That's twice as much as Apple's iTunes service charges. In addition, subscription services such as those from Napster and Yahoo! are available that enable virtually unlimited downloads for a fixed amount per month.

"Customers are paying $2 for a shortened version of a song for a ringtone," Lauer told Reuters. "Will they pay the same for a full song, having the convenience of having it on (a cellphone)? I think they will."

Sprint Nextel is not the first wireless operator to promise a music download service. Verizon previously confirmed it, too, is developing a music service.

The company also disclosed that it would start combining service plans this fall and that early next year it will start selling a phone that works on both Sprint's CDMA network and Nextel's iDEN network.
