T-Mobile announces new low price plan: 4 lines, 10GB of data for $100
T-Mobile has taken the competition's four lines for $160 offers and has applied its usual Legerian math to make them irrelevant. Consider that the mobile operator is the only one of the four majors that won't charge a customer for going over his data cap on these four line plans. AT&T and Verizon start the meter running after 10GB of data is consumed, while Sprint's Framily plan starts counting overage dollars when each member exceeds 1GB. If you exceed your individual 2.5GB of data on the T-Mobile plan, the worse thing you suffer is slower data speeds.
As T-Mobile CEO John Legere points out on the company blog this morning, T-Mobile's plan saves customers $1440 over two years. But don't expect the others to sit back and take this punch. Surely there will be a response from the other three.
It is a deal like this that have many consumers wondering about the rumored Sprint purchase of T-Mobile. Will that transaction end the age of pro-consumer actions that we have come to expect from T-Mobile?
