Mobile launches $15/month plan ahead of Sprint merger closing

Starting Wednesday, T-Mobile is offering a pay-as-you-go plan with 2 gigabytes of data for $15 a month. But due to the current climate, and many being out of work, T-Mobile made a decision to launch it early and help those that are affected the most by COVID-19 closings.

The plans offer unlimited talk and text, as well as 2GB of data. If customers can download data at a much faster clip, they're going to be able to get more done within a given period of time, which is going to get them into trouble. The prepaid package will deliver unlimited talk and text as well as 2GB of data for $15 per month (or 5GB for $25).

T-Mobile first announced T-Mobile Connect last November at a time it was trying to clear the last remaining legal hurdles for its proposed merger with Sprint.

The plans compare favorably with low-priced MVNOs like Ting and US Mobile, which generally charge $20 or more per month for this level of service. The plans come with an annual data upgrade each year, providing 500MB of additional monthly data at no extra cost for the next five years.

T-Mobile this week also launched its lowest-cost smartphone plan, T-Mobile Connect, ahead of schedule.

T-Mobile has also been taking significant steps as the nation continues to deal with the adverse economic impact of the virus outbreak.

As for why T-Mobile has pushed up the launch of Connect, I think we all know that there is an at-risk population in this country that could certainly benefit from a less expensive cell plan. That is a great feature to have, as we're going to be using more and more data with 5G becoming more readily available. The be offering is part the cost of the former one and was once scheduled to release after the corporate's takeover of Sprint Corp.is done subsequent month.

MetroSmart Hotspot devices will also be half off, and the $35 per month data plan includes 20GB of data for the next 60 days. In New York City, Ray said T-Mobile has seen an 86% increase in subscribers with limited mobility, "meaning they connect to cell sites only in their primary location".

"The things consumers love about T-Mobile will not change", said T-Mobile President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Sievert.

Because this is a new plan, T-Mobile's current coronvirus pledge to give existing customers unlimited data for 60 days does not apply. That's double the normal monthly limit.
