Homebased Business Owners Say Hello To A New Line Of Phone Services.

By Heather Page

On the heels of Sprint's wildly successful Friday's Free campaign for small businesses, the telecommunications giant is gearing up to unveil a new deal designed for homebased businesses: Sprint Sense Home Office. The service, which entered a test phase last month, bundles several phone services for homebased businesses under one pricing plan.

For one flat fee, Sprint Sense Home Office packages together a toll-free number, a calling card and long-distance services. For example, users will be able to purchase 1,000 minutes for $100; the minutes can then be put toward any or all three services without any different pricing structures or extra surcharges, much like how cellular service works.

According to Sprint, the program is designed to deliver the most common phone services homebased businesses need in a convenient fashion. Sprint Sense Home Office is slated to go nationwide early next year. For more information, call the special number set up for Entrepreneur readers (888-280-0274).
