I used to be a Federal employee (for a summer when I worked at a Post Office), but I already get a 25% discount with Sprint from my current employer. So there!

I was told that Boeing is one of the four companies that gets a 25% discount with Sprint as well. They're such a big company that it doesn't surprise me that they'd get discounts from more than one provider.

In addition to Sprint, we also got a discount with AT&T Wireless, though I have no idea what the status of that is now that Cingular bought them.
