YOU ARE NOT FORCED TO CHANGE PLANS, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR CURRENT PLAN!

This new plan only replaces the current "Simple Choice Unlimited LTE" plan ($95 + $75 + $55...). The 2GB & 6GB Simple Choice plans will remain (for now).

If you want to sign up for the current "Simple Choice Unlimited LTE" plan ($95 + $75 + $55...), you have until 9/5/2016 to do it.



As far as how good this plan is, it all depends on the customer. If you're a customer that uses a lot of LTE on your smartphone, rarely tethers, rarely watches streaming video off Wi-Fi (or doesn't mind 480p), then this plan can save you around $25/line/mo (which can add up fast if you have multiple lines). If you're a customer that tethers and watches streaming video on your phone off Wi-Fi frequently, then the older plan may give you more "bang for the buck". Don't forget T-Mobile is still keeping their Simple Choice 2GB & 6GB option... this new plan will be cheaper than T-Mobile's current Simple Choice 10GB.

As far as how good T-Mobile's network is, it all depends on where the customer travels. If you generally travel to locations where T-Mobile has decent coverage, then you may not need to pay for service with Verizon or AT&T... why pay for more coverage that you'll never/rarely use? If you travel all around the U.S. (especially rural areas) and you insist on only having 1 cell phone, then Verizon or AT&T will give you more coverage (but still won't cover every location in the U.S.).


T-Mobile's Uncarrier 12 'Unlimited' Plans: What You Need to Know: http://www.pcmag.com/news/347143/...ou-need-to


Click for the current state of wireless networks in the US. [opensignal.com] The results may shock a lot of people. Definite must-read.

The Fine Print:

Data may be de-prioritized after 26GB - De-prioritized means you get slowed down enough so that customers who haven't hit the 28GB limit get LTE speeds IF and ONLY IF the cell phone tower is at maximum capacity. (throttling slows you down 24/7, whether the tower is at capacity or not)

Video is downgraded to 480p
Tethering is unlimited at 128k

$15 to add a 5GB LTE spped data tethering bucket - Customer service wasn't sure whether the data would sit in the bucket for a year like Data Stash, or just 30 days like regular On-Demand data.

$25/mo to remove 480p video throttling - per line - unless held close to your face the difference is minor on a phone, but becomes noticeable on a tablet

$20/mo "tablets" - Customer service was unable to say whether the plan could be applied to hotspots (as in the physical, not phone, kind) Currently SIMs are swappable between tablets and hotspots.

Current plans can be kept "forever" [t-mobile.com]. That said, they've also said they want to eventually move all customers to the new plans. In the past that has meant a specially discounted version of the current offering that offered more than the grandfathered plan.

With T-Mobile ONE, even video is unlimited at standard definition – typically DVD quality (480p) – so you can stream all you want from ANY video site out there. For customers who want higher definition video, T-Mobile ONE has you covered too with an HD add-on for $25 a month per line. And, T-Mobile ONE includes all the Mobile Hotspot data you want at 2G speeds.
That's a bit of a rip off imo....Not really sure how this is much different than what they did before since it's unlimited slow video streaming.

This is great. Just compare it to AT&T and Verizon and you will see T-Mobile kill them for good.

With AT&T and Verizon, they charged freaking 20 to 30$ per line, called accessing fee to share data and of course that's not even including overage.

Thats laughable. Drive anywhere away from the highway or city and TMobile no signal.

I'll stick with Verizon. At least I know it works pretty much anywhere......

Coverage is YMMV with any carrier in any location so just be aware that other's experience might not match your own

Edit: Coverage in my area is about the same for T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon based on personal experience.

lol I like how they throw around unlimited but throttle your data after 5gb so is it really unlimited if you can't even stream a video after you got your 5GB?

With Legere in charge- that will change too for the better.

If anything it's forced VZW & ATT & SPCS to change their business practices in the last 3 years.

Not saying T-Mo is bad but this "deal" seems like the same deal they had before but he took away the binge on name and music freedom I think it was called and just rolled it into plans. Maybe I'm missing something.

Where are you at?

T-mobile got rated the #1 carrier overall recently in terms of LTE coverage, doubt it's that bad anymore.

T-Mobile One brings back a single line down to $70 as it originally was as a Value Plan pre-Uncarrier one. This is an amazing offer and would switch to that if I weren't on the $150 unlimited 4 lines already.

This will end up costing the average family more money. I have 4 lines 2.5 GB $100 and additional lines are only $10 more, now two other family members wanna join but want more than 2.5GB (all lines will need to upgrade). With this announcement, I better switch to the 6GB plans which will be way more than enough for us before it goes away.
