T-Mobile Increases Family Plan Limit to 10 Lines
T-Mobile today expanded the flexibility of its family plan from a maximum of five lines per plan to a maximum of 10 lines per plan. T-Mobile Simple Choice subscribers can add new lines to their plan for $10 each after the second subscriber. Beginning August 27, they'll be able to add up to 10 lines. T-Mobile says the increase is in response to demand from large families as well as small business. Each T-Mobile Simple Choice plan provides unlimited talk/text, unlimited 2G data, and up to 1GB of LTE data. Subscribers can add unlimited LTE data for $30 per line if they wish. T-Mobile's Simple Choice plans do not require a contract, don't charge overages, and include 2G data and texting while abroad, in addition to free music streaming in the U.S. In addition to the expanded Simple Choice family plans, T-Mobile is upping the data available to tablets. Beginning September 3, customers can add a tablet to their plan for $10 per month and T-Mobile will match the customers' smartphone data allotment up to 5GB. For example, a Simple Choice subscriber who pays for 3GB of LTE data for their smartphone will receive that same amount of data for their tablet for $10 per month.
