T-Mobile’s Un-Carrier Amped initiative continues unabated with Tuesday’s announcement of a brand new plan which offers families of four a cool ten gigabytes of high-speed 4G LTE data each, in exchange for an average monthly fee of $30 per person.

The way it works is this: two lines get ten gigabytes of data per line for a total of $100 per month ($50 per line), with a third line getting the same 10GB allowance in exchange for $20 per month and a fourth line being offered at no additional charge.

If you do the math quickly in your head, that’s a total of $120 per month for four lines, each with 10GB data allowance.

The fourth line will be provided free of charge only if you sign up between today and Labor Day holiday on September 7. If ten gigs of 4G LTE just isn’t enough for you, the carrier will happily double that to 20 gigs for an additional $10 per month per line.

This time-limited offer applies to Family Plans only and is available in all T-Mobile stores, including telesales, and with many of the firm’s partner dealers. It will also be available online “in the next few weeks.”

The carrier allows customers who take advantage of this promotion to mix and match between 10GB and 20GB data amounts. “10GB are included with your plan, and an additional $10/month gets you 20GB for each person who needs more data,” explains T-Mobile.

The new plan comes with standard Un-Carrier perks like unlimited data, talk and text, Music Freedom, no overages, Wi-Fi calling, Data Stash and more. Current Simple Choice families can switch to the new 10GB plan starting tomorrow and can keep their plan as long as they stay on it.

Here’s T-Mobile’s John Legere:

It’s no surprise Verizon’s spent what looks to be over $100 million in just two months promoting an $80 data plan with 10GB everyone has to share. The catch is, it’s not actually an $80 plan. You can’t actually use any of that data until you pay additional ‘line access’ fees for data you’ve already bought.

So, when they say $80, they actually charge a family of four at least $140. And that’s to share 10GB. Leave it to Verizon to push a plan that gives you a pile of data you can’t use unless you fork over more in hidden fees.

For more information about the new family plan, check out T-Mobile’s website.

As part of its Un-Carrier Amped moves, T-Mobile has also rolled out the new JUMP! On Demand plan which allows you to upgrade to a new phone three times per year and unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data in Canada and Mexico.

  • Not related to this post,But I highly recommend u guys to check out “Amulet”.
    It’s a free theme and supports iOS 8.0 to 8.4 ^_^

    10G of data that I can hardly use if I stray more than 10 miles from a major city

    • Manuel Molina

      Were you reading my mind? T-Mobile should start forking over some cash and get some spectrum so we can see more bars instead of a no signal sign every time you leave a city.

      • Vince Reedy

        I have had them since October and have not been pleased. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt since they said they were upgrading their network by this summer. I will give them until the end of the summer, then I’m moving back to my old network. (The big V)

      • Manuel Molina

        I wouldn’t go back to Verizon. I loved their coverage and their data was just beastly quick. But I’m not giving them 120 dollars for 2 GB of data.

      • Vince Reedy

        I won’t go back for that either. They need to come off some cash or add some GB first.

  • Wow this would cut my ATT bill in half.

    • If only they had good coverage in my area I’d switch..

    • Merman123

      Unfortunately it will also cut your coverage and speeds in half as well.

  • stylesbeyond

    hahaha 10gb you americans get screwed so much all you can’t eat data here in the uk truly all you can use unlimited i can use mine 24/7 every day the year for £15 a month

    • Manuel Molina

      Can’t eat? Maybe you should worry about your English being how you’re from the UK and all, and spend the money you’re saving on some writing classes. 🙂

      • Vince Reedy

        We will keep our unsubsidized free market internet thank you very much. Hopefully it stays that way.

      • stylesbeyond

        oh no the grammar police is out quick someone grab a gun and shoot oh wait I’m in the uk we think before shooting

      • askep3

        Nice one

      • Manuel Molina

        Maybe that thinking with guns is why the Brits lost to the states during the war, yes? Way to use you guns, love.

      • stylesbeyond

        haha you’re a funny one, yeah cause guns makes you hard!! thats why we have less killings from guns here oh wait we don’t use guns only stupid country who legalise guns use them then wonder why theres killings

      • Manuel Molina

        First off, I personal don’t have nor use guns. Second, you clearly are a moron to put an assumption of these values onto an entire population. Either you are a racist or a moron. Third, your comment is dragging its feet to defend your country at best, as you are faulting a country who bears the right to have guns but your country calls ours to bring guns when you clearly do t have the army or don’t have them period. So if we are stupid, that makes you even dumber for having such strong ties to the United States and people who you call dumb for having guns.

      • Vince Reedy

        Oh wait you’re in the UK, you don’t have guns.

      • stylesbeyond

        and thats why we rarely have any gun killings cause we’re smarter

  • Thanh

    Can I upgrade my current plan to this one or no?

    • Kevin Chen

      IDK what plan u currently have, but I’m fairly certain u meant “downgrade” instead of “upgrade” (t-Mobile = band-aided network, literally + throttling + poor coverage + slow data speeds..). That’s why they typically offer the cheapest plans (u get what u pay for). IMHO Verizon is best but also most expensive. I’ve had AT&T since 2009 and have been relatively pleased (had t-Mo before).

      • Mike Colacone Saal

        slow? st Pete Florida 30 mbps. Visiting little Rhode island and got the same speeds. Depends on where you live honestly.

  • Ethan

    Wow … 30$ for 10GB in US … that’s insane … I pay 15€ for unlimited in EU (I already had month where I used 35GB). US carriers should start acting normally and not squeeze every penny from theirs customers.
