T-Mobile Ups Free Tablet Data to 1GB for Voice Customers
T-Mobile today announced the second of three new initiatives meant to help lure in customers. The company is targeting tablet customers with its latest offer, which will give current voice subscribers a total of 1.2GB of free tablet data until the end of the year. T-Mobile already offers 200MB to all tablets for free and is adding 1GB to that pot. Second, T-Mobile is selling LTE-equipped tablets at the same price as their Wi-Fi-only counterparts. That means a 16GB Apple iPad Air with LTE will cost $499 instead of $629 when purchased through T-Mobile. T-Mobile is carrying over its Contract Freedom initiative to tablets, as well, and will pay the ETF for customers who break their tablet contract and switch to T-Mobile. Last, T-Mobile is offering tablets for $0 down with corresponding monthly payments for those who prefer to finance their hardware.
Well technically, AT&T has them for $429
For most people on the network already, it's a measly $10 a month to share the data on the account, so not a biggie there - and far superior speeds and coverage.
I don't seen any compelling reason to run to T-Mobile.
iPad Air Price $630
Or is the offer limited to only existing customers?
No WiFi Only Models
If they mean selling their 3G/4G tablets for the same price as a store like Google or Best Buy or Apple is selling a WiFi only version of their tablets, then sure, Id be interested in upgrading my Nexus 7 to a new version.
Half the stuff they already offer
So unless everyone is getting $0 down (like people like me who don't qualify) then i don't get the point of mentioning these two points.
