Just when you thought John Legere n’ friends were going to give Verizon and AT&T a break for the holidays, the #4 largest carrier in the US (that’s T-Mobile) announced a new Family Plan that’s sure to make the big dogs squirm.
The new family plan gives customers unlimited talk, text, and data for only $100 (that’s 2 lines), undercutting family plans offered by anyone in US by a huge margin. Additional lines can be added for $40 per line. Data sippers with larger families will also find the 4-line $100 family plan making a return, and comes with 10GB for everyone to share.
Keep in mind the new plans is only available for a limited time, so you might want to check T-Mobile coverage in your area before jumping ship. The new plans will be offered to both existing and new customers starting tomorrow and we can’t wait to see how Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint launch their counter offensive.
UPDATE: Here’s some of the fine print to go along with the promotional pricing from T-Mobile:
“The 4 Lines for $100 promotional data feature returns to the normal 1GB max-speed per line in January 2016, and that the 2 Lines for $100 data feature has a hotspot/tether cap at 5GB.”
