Mobile rolls out cheaper tier of unlimited service

Mobile rolls out cheaper tier of unlimited service”

Called the T-Mobile Essentials plan, it offers only the basics, without numerous extras that T-Mobile has become known for. The plan will be available Friday and costs $60 for a single line, $30 for the second line and $15 per line for lines 3-6, plus taxes and fees with autopay.

As always, T-Mobile is listening to customers, and T-Mobile Essentials is designed for those who say they just want the basics: unlimited talk, text and smartphone data in the USA - all at the industry's best price, only $30 per line for a family of four with autopay.

One other tidbit: T-Mobile will throttle Essentials data speeds when its network is congested. But if you don't have autopay set up, that will cost you $5 more per line. That's who T-Mobile Essentials is for. Customers also get unlimited talk, text, and 2G data in Mexico and Canada as well unlimited texting and $0.25 per minute calling in other global destinations. And Verizon charges $80 for the first line of service on its cheapest "gounlimited" plan. For $10 more, users get 1080p video and 10 GB of hotspot data before dropping to 3G. But things have gotten decidedly more complex since T-Mobile announced that it would offer only a single unlimited plan to its customers. Credit approval, deposit, and $25 SIM starter kit may be required. As mentioned. Netflix is included with both plans. If not, and you don't ever go to Canada or Mexico, then I'm not sure why you wouldn't downgrade to this new Essentials plan.

"The Un-carrier wants to make it easy", CEO John Legere said in a press release.

Keep in mind that to get to those prices, you need to agree to pay account taxes and enable auto payments.

T-Mobile's move to a tiered pricing structure for its unlimited options follows similar moves by the rest of the nation's wireless operators. Taxes and fees are also not included in that rate.

As T-Mobile sees it, not all of its users need the frills and benefits of its One or One Plus plans. Is T-Mobile still the UnCarrier?
