T-Mobile has forged radical changes in the American mobile carrier pricing war. The “Un Carrier” has helped demolish traditional two year contracts and has moved other carriers into offering reasonable amounts of data in their monthly shared plans. A new family plan was announced on Tuesday providing a whopping 10 GB of data per family user.
The New T-Mobile Family Plan
A family of four can now enjoy 10 GB of data per users per month with no overages or sharing required. The plan would cost $120 per month and would not charge overages while traveling to over 120 countries and provides their music freedom, Wi-Fi calling, and data rollover in tow. The plan, compared to Verizon gives more to their customers for less, something Verizon and AT&T would have to match to continue competing.
To take advantage of this limited time deal, T-Mobile suggests a family sign up for 2 lines at $50 per line. Each additional line would then cost $20 per line and they are waiving the cost for the fourth line. So at $120 a month instead of $140 a month, T-Mobile is then tacking on unlimited talk and text along with 10GB data usage per line. They created a landing page with more information found here.
Existing family plan users should be able to switch their plans over to take advantage of the changes. The offer begins on Wednesday, July 15th and runs through Labor Day weekend ending on September 7th. T-Mobile continues to shake up the industry that at one point seemed too cold and careless to care about their customers’ needs. As more and more families gobble up loads of data, these changes are welcome.
