T-Mobile USA, Inc. today announced new Value plans, making it more
affordable to step up to data on the company's 4G Network, in a move
aimed at wooing customers of bigger rivals Verizon Wireless and AT&T
which had stopped offering such plans.
The new plans are slated to be available beginning on July 24. The
unlimited plans will be available with a two-year agreement for new
and existing customers.
The Value plans offer single-line and multiline options with a range
of price points for talk, unlimited text and unlimited data with 2
GB, 5 GB or 1. 0 GB of high-speed data - with no data overage
For example, T-Mobile's new Value family plan with unlimited talk,
unlimited text and unlimited data with 2 GB of high-speed data is
just $49.99 per line for two lines. Even with the addition of
purchasing two smartphones, such as the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide,
on T-Mobile's Equipment Installment Plan, customers may yield
savings of more than $800 annually.
T-Mobile also will offer a lineup of mobile broadband service
options under both the new Value and Classic plans. For instance,
customers could add an overage-free mobile broadband Value plan to
their voice service for $19.99 per month with 2 GB of high-speed
data for products, including laptop sticks, tablets and the T-Mobile
4G Mobile Hotspot, which allows a family to share their 4G mobile
connection with up to five Wi-Fi devices using a single mobile
T-Mobile's new Value and Classic plans are expected to be available
beginning July 24. In addition to the unlimited Value and Classic
plans, T-Mobile also will introduce new Value plans for small
business customers this summer.
Verizon Wireless, the biggest U.S. mobile provider, said earlier in
July it will stop offering unlimited data service plans, meaning
higher prices for heavy users of services such as mobile Web surfing.
AT&T had stopped offering unlimited data services last year.
