T-Mobile began the UNcarrier approach back in March. At the time they announced Simple Choice plans for individuals. Those same plans then came available for families in mid-July and as of today they are available for business users. T-Mobile is pushing these plans as being able to provide customers with “more flexibility and choice about how they buy and use wireless devices.”
With that in mind, T-Mobile has a few options available including the Simple Choice for Business and the Simple Choice Classic. There is also a mobile broadband offering for those who want just the data. The mobile broadband plans range from 500MB of data on the low side to 12.5GB of data on the high side.
The pricing will vary from option to option, however the Simple Choice Classic plans begin at $40. That price includes unlimited talk, text and data with 500MB of that being high-speed. The price then goes up to $70 per month which includes unlimited high-speed data. T-Mobile has said the Classic option will be good for “business customers who prefer to bundle device and service fees into their monthly plan.”
Shifting over to the Simple Choice for Business options and we are looking at what is being described as a good option for the business with a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program in place. This is set up for the business with more than five lines of service and is similar to the Simple Choice option for individuals in that you will not have any long-term agreements to deal with.
Basically all that needs to be determined is how many lines of service are needed and how much data is needed. T-Mobile has said prices range from $20 for unlimited talk, text and 500MB of high-speed data to $50 for unlimited high-speed data. And as we have seen with other Simple Choice plans, these for business come with no caps and no overages.
These plans will all be available beginning on August 26th and details can be found on the T-Mobile.com/business website or by talking to your business sales rep.
