There was another side of T-Mobile’s Uncarrier announcements today that business owners might want to be made aware of. The first is an all new simple choice of plans that get cheaper with the more employees you have.
It starts off at $16 per line from 1-20 lines, goes to $15 per line for lines 21-1,000, and $10 per line for anything above that. All plans feature unlimited talk and text, and come with at least 1GB of data for your employees to use should they need it. Doesn’t sound too bad. T-Mobile says this effectively makes their business plans up to 40% cheaper than the other wireless carriers.
To continue on the front of simplicity and choice, the company gives you the freedom to add more data on a per-line basis, so if the CEO needs 10GB and his underlings only need 5GB, that’s totally possible. You could even opt for a “data pool” where you pay only what you and your employees use, from 100GB ($4.75 per GB) up to 1TB ($4.25 per GB). T-Mobile says it solves the problem of businesses paying for far more data than they’ll ever need, something other carriers purportedly design their plans around.
There were a few other perks sprinkled throughout the announcement, including a free .com domain name and website through GoDaddy, free .com email address and service through Microsoft Office 365, and discounts of up to 50% for family members of business customers. Not too shabby at all. Be sure to run these new features by your boss if you want them to consider giving it a go.
