T-Mobile to Do Away with Employer Rate Plan Discounts

Article Comments  38  

Mar 29, 2014, 10:06 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

Beginning April 1, T-Mobile will no longer offer monthly discounts to employees of certain companies. In the past, T-Mobile offered these discounts to help close large corporate sales. Given the changes T-Mobile has made to its service plans and device purchasing policies over the last year, T-Mobile feels the practice of offering employer discounts is now outdated. In its place, T-Mobile will offer those employees $25 toward the purchase of a new device. "This change is about simplifying wireless for everyone, including employees of small and large companies alike," said T-Mobile CEO John Legere in a statement. "It's simple, clear and transparent – like everything we do."

Full of it

T-Mobile is so full of it. I only stay with them because of my employer discount. If they get away it then I will get away with them. T-Mobile must think they are AT&T or Verizon....Please!
how much is your discount?

Actually they are worse than AT&T and Verizon. Those 2 companies still have discounts. Because they respect their customers.

Why people in the first place go with this network I will never figure out. Only for the cheaper plans?
You go out of a major urban area or large town and bye-bye 4G/HSPDA

Yeah, right...

"This change is about simplifying wireless for everyone, including employees of small and large companies alike," said T-Mobile CEO John Legere in a statement. "It's simple, clear and transparent – like everything we do."


What a load of crap.

It's much more likely that the shareholders have decided that they're tired of the uncarrier Rolling Eyes being unprofitable and this is one way to pinch some pennies. We shall see how affected customers react.
Doubtful they have many corporate clients in the US right now, and even more doubtful they will get anymore with this change in policy. But, I'm sure I will get some nasty replies by the T-Mobile Fan Boi peanut gallery who thinks they can do no wrong...

While I dont criticize them for it...

..I think it is that they no longer could afford giving a monthly discount on the new plans.
No, they can afford it. It's just that they're trying to also finish rebuilding the rest of the network past 2G/EDGE/GPRS areas and that's going to take some serious cash.

I'm all for this change if they actually get rid of EDGE/GPRS areas, that's ...
