On Tuesday, OpenSignal released their report regarding data speeds, and latency for the four carriers. Now this report used data that was gathered using their own apps from customers like you and I who use their app to do a speed test. It’s a crowdsourced report and showed that T-Mobile’s network was the fastest, albeit by less than a megabit. To celebrate that report, T-Mobile today launched a few new data plans for families. The biggest one being the ability to get 4 lines of Unlimited LTE data for just $150 per month. That’s the lowest price ever offered by anyone. Technically it’s $50 for each line but the fourth line is free.
There are a few other choices included in today’s announcement. Families can also get two lines for $100 per month which gives each line 10GB of LTE data each month. Or you can do four lines with 10GB of LTE data each for $120/month. This, along with the four for $150 can also have more lines added on for just $30. The limit is 12 lines however. It’s a pretty fantastic deal when you think about it. These deals are available for those that are current customers as well as those looking to switch over. There’s no requirement for switching to these new plans (i.e. no number porting, turning in old phones, etc). Also, T-Mobile is allowing customers to stack this with their half-off smartphone event that they launched earlier this week.
T-Mobile’s CEO, John Legere stated in the company’s press release “Last year, I told you we’d massively expand our LTE coverage, and we did. I promised we’d compete nearly everywhere with Verizon’s LTE network, and win. And that’s exactly what real-time, crowd-sourced studies are now confirming.”
Of course, in addition to getting all this extra data at even lower prices, customers will also get plenty of Uncarrier features including Music Freedom, Simple Global, Simple Choice, Binge On and many other features that help to extend your data and also cut out the fees that other carriers charge. Especially when traveling to Canada and Mexico, where you will get 4G LTE data for free. This plan is a limited time deal, but T-Mobile has not mentioned when the deal will be ending, so you may want to jump on this quick before it’s gone.
