Simple Choice customers still start with one line at $50 per month for unlimited data, talk and text on our nationwide network – but will now get a full 1GB of 4G LTE data and tethering – double the previous amounts. Customers can still add a second line for $30 per month and up to three additional lines for $10 per month. Those additional lines also get the extra 4G LTE data with these changes.
As before, Simple Choice customers can always add more 4G LTE data to each of their lines. They can opt for 3GB of 4G LTE data, including tethering, for an additional $10 a month per line (vs. 2.5 GB previously), or 5GB for an extra $20 a month per line. There is a new unlimited 4G LTE option, which now comes with a full 5 GB of tethering, double the previous amount, for an extra $30 per month (vs. an extra $20 previously).
Second, with the new global texting benefits from the U.S. now included in Simple Choice, T-Mobile is the only US wireless carrier to deliver unlimited international texting to virtually anywhere - now from the United States and over 120 countries and destinations around the world - at no extra charge. Unlike with competitors, there is no need to purchase an additional package or special plan to get unlimited global texting and data. It comes automatically with every Simple Choice plan.
"In the mobile age, wireless data caps and overage fees are just this side of extortion," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "Take the basic plans from the Big Two with ridiculously low data limits that hit you with fat overages each month. It's like getting your data from the neighborhood loan shark and paying 100 percent interest when the bill comes due. It's the classic shakedown."
These changes will take effect automatically on March 23. Those on the current unlimited 4G LTE plans will not automatically switch over, unless they would like to opt-in to pay $10 more for twice the tethering. Mike Sievert, T-Mobile's CMO, has given a full run-down on the changes, which you can read over here.
