Google and T-Mobile have partnered up for an exclusive Google One subscription plan for the latter’s postpaid customers, The T-Mo Report reports. The exclusive plan will reportedly include 500GB of Google One cloud storage at just $5 per month. The offer will be available to all T-Mobile postpaid customers, including business customers, with 12 lines or less starting September 1st. Users of both Android smartphones and iPhones can avail of this offer. For a limited time, T-Mobile is also offering a one-month free trial when you sign-up.
According to the report, subscribers will be able to share the 500GB of cloud storage space with up to five Google accounts. The shared storage will be available across everything-Google, including Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos where you can upload and store 4K photos. You also get all other Google One features such as seamless device backup and restore, and direct access to Google experts over call, email, or chat.
There’s no VPN service bundled here though, at least that’s what it appears right now. VPN by Google One is currently reserved for the priciest subscription plan, which costs $10 per month and offers 2TB of cloud storage. It also gives you 10 percent cashback on the Google Store.
Other Google One subscription plans include the $2 per month plan with 100GB of cloud storage and the $3 per month plan with 200GB storage. So T-Mobile’s 500GB storage plan for $5 a month fits right in with these tiers. There aren’t seemingly any notable exclusive benefits besides the plan itself being exclusive to T-Mobile postpaid subscribers. We’ll have to wait until the company officially announces this promotion to know if there will be any cashback offers or any other extra benefit as part of this plan.
An exclusive Google One subscription plan is on way for T-Mobile customers
Primarily a cloud storage service, Google One has expanded to much more than that in recent years. Most notably, it added a VPN service that’s now available in eight countries including the US. It is also preparing to offer Google Play Pass in a discounted bundle soon. Now, according to the latest report, T-Mobile postpaid customers will get an exclusive subscription plan for the service.
Unfortunately, users on Sprint’s network will not be eligible for this promotion. However, the bigger picture is that T-Mobile will offer an exclusive 3-month trial to those users via its T-Mobile Tuesdays program on September 7. Perhaps the company wants to lure Sprint customers to switch to its network as soon as possible, so it can shut down the latter’s legacy networks.
