T-Mobile family promo 002

T-Mobile USA, the self-proclaimed “Uncarrier,” on Wednesday launched a new family plan promotion which starts at $100 per month for two lines with unlimited 4G LTE data (2.5GB per line with no sharing required), with an additional $40 per line cost on up to ten people.

Additionally, the Deutsche-Telekom owned carrier is again offering four lines for $100 with ten gigabytes of 4G LTE data. That particular offering used to be available before and has grown to become T-Mobile’s most successful promotion.

The deal has no strings attached to it and comes with the carrier’s usual perks like no annual service contracts or domestic overages, unlimited talk and text, unmetered music streaming on T-Mobile’s nationwide network plus unlimited data and texting in 120+ countries and destinations, Wi-Fi calling and free in-flight messaging.

Every T-Mobile Simple Choice postpaid customer qualifies for the promo. The Unlimited 4G LTE family plan promotional offer is available starting today, for a limited time.

“Your family will get the extra data until 2016 starts, and after that, you’ll still get 1 GB of 4G LTE data per line,” said the firm. “And, as always, you’ll never face domestic overages when you use more data.”

As is his wont, T-Mobile CEO John Legere slammed competition saying rivals AT&T, Sprint and Verizon are confusing costumers this holiday season with as many as 24 different family and promotional rate plans.

Citing its own survey, the carrier claims that 81 percent of surveyed customers have found these wireless data offerings as ‘Somewhat Confusing’ or ‘Very Confusing’.

Furthermore, approximately 75 percent of people “hate” monitoring their families’ data usage on carriers’ confusing shared data plans.

“Right now we are in a great spot,” Legere told Re/code commenting on the new unlimited family plans. “Unlimited is what customers want and need right now,” he said.

Touching on the subject of Verizon’s profit warning, the CEO said he wasn’t surprised that Verizon’s earnings are slipping given the company’s many promotional offers.

    Now put up a few more towers and it might be worth it.

      This. I didn’t realize how bad T-Mobile was until I had to travel out of town by car. In some parts I lose service, in some I have service but I have edge. Or I have 4G but it’s simply super slow.
      But their prices are good to say the least, a lot of people is for sure beneficiating from this

      In New York they have excellent service!! Trust me their speeds match my home internet speeds. They just need more coverage because it’s not everywhere I get that. They are definitely gaining more customers though.

        You’re right. And as long as you have no need to travel, you’ll be fine.

  • InfinitePlusOne

    I pay £15/month for unlimited 4GLTE. 200 minutes and unlimited texts.? + 4GB tethering

    The first paragraph is wrong. The 2 lines for $100 does not get 2.5 gigs each. They both get unlimited LTE data. This is from T-mobile’s site…Available tomorrow, the new Simple Choice family plan starts at just $100 per month for two people – and it goes all the way up to 10 people for just $40 more per line – when everyone on your plan wants unlimited blazing-fast data on America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network.

    They have two plans. One is 2 phones for $100/month with unlimited LTE (each phone after is $40 up to 10 phones total.)

    The other plan is 4 phones that share 10 gigs for $100/month.

  • Victor Molina

    So with this plan I only get 2.5 gb of data or unlimited 4g LTE per month

  • Rodney Coleman

    T-Mobile weak… Just like sprint lol

  • Instead of spending their money on discounts why don’t they erect a few more towers
