Mobile Introduces a Cheaper Unlimited Plan

T-Mobile now offers a less expensive unlimited plan

T-Mobile Essentials does without the usual add-ons of global data access, unlimited mobile hotspot, and other features, in the name of keeping the price down every month.

The pricing breaks down as follows: The first line on T-Mobile Essentials costs $60 per month, while the second costs $30.

Called T-Mobile Essentials, you're given unlimited talk, text and data. If you use over 50GB of data per month, you may get throttled during times of congestion too. Using that average, a single line of T-Mobile Essentials would cost $71, which is more than a single line of T-Mobile One! Each line after that, for a total of up to six lines, costs $15 per month. That's a hypocritical move from T-Mobile, a company that has raked its competitors over the coals over the added cost of their taxes and fees, but it also makes the Essentials plan less of a bargain than it might seem. The plan is similar to pared-back "unlimited" plans that have recently been debuted by Verizon and AT&T: You get mostly-unlimited mobile data, talk, and texts for less than the flagship plan, but lose additional extras like high-speed hotspot data and global roaming.

The cheaper plan limits video to 480p and hotspot connections are always 3G. And T-Mobile ONE Plus International is $65 per line per month; yes, it adds yet more still. Theyve got Above Unlimited, Unlimited Plus, Beyond Unlimited, Unlimited and More…Unlimited and More Premium?!


T-Mobile Essentials will be open for new and existing subscribers to sign up as of August 10. Credit approval, deposit, and $25 SIM starter kit may be required.

One other tidbit in today's announcement is that T-Mobile is increasing the high-speed mobile hotspot allotment included with T-Mobile One Plus. This might make things complicated for current and potential T-Mobile customers. Despite that, the company thinks there are some customers out there who may be willing to give up a few perks that normally come with their plans in exchange for small reduction in the monthly bill.

T-Mobile One Plus International, finally, is also an upgrade over ONE.

As T-Mobile sees it, not all of its users need the frills and benefits of its One or One Plus plans. If you add a 2nd line, that'll be an extra $30/mo. It starts at $40 per line with taxes and fees included for a family for four with autopay.
