T-Mobile reverses decision on ending employer rate discounts for current subscribers
On Tuesday, the nation's fourth largest carrier partially reversed its decision by announcing that it was keeping the discount for those subscribers who are already receiving it. A tweet from T-Mobile's CMO, Mike Sievert, announced that the carrier was grandfathering current members.
New members, however, will no longer be offered the employer rate discount, which could be as much as 50% off the price for new handsets, and 15% off the price of a monthly data plan. New customers who would have qualified for the employer rate discount, will now receive a $25 T-Mobile gift card when they purchase a new device.
