T-Mobile CEO John Legere really doesn’t pull any punches when calling out his competitors’ claims to offer the “Best Ever Pricing” when it comes to offering family plans to their consumers. What he is boasting about though is that his company is the only one among the carriers that can really back up this claim, particularly with their new Simple Choice program that gives four lines 10GB worth of data connection on an LTE network.
Based on a comparative table they posted on the T-Mobile blog, the normal monthly charges for a normal family plan for four mobile phones is $160. But the Simple Choice plan is just at $100 a month, which means each family member gets 2.5GB on LTE, which is apparently the average size of data that average people consume on a monthly basis. But aside from that, the plan also offers unlimited texts, calls and data (non-LTE of course), as well as tethering to use your phone’s fast connection on your desktop or other gadgets.
If international charges are your concern, the Simple Choice plan also has unlimited text and data in more than 120 countries, and there is no additional charges for this. Music streaming services are also part of the bundle, including T-Mobile’s own UnRadio, an Internet music service created in cooperation with Rhapsody with over 20 million songs on its database.
The Simple Choice bundle is available for new sign-ups to T-Mobile starting July 30 and will be open to sign-ups until the end of September. With your $60 savings, as compared to the other carriers’ plans, this seems like a deal that is good to pass up. Think also of all the apps and games you can buy on that saved amount!
