T-Mobile Debuts Plan for Those Over Age 55
T-Mobile today rolled out the T-Mobile One Unlimited 55+ offering, a wireless plan that includes two lines with unlimited talk, text, and LTE 4G data for a total of $60. That price includes taxes and fees, but requires autopay. T-Mobile says the plan includes its Simple Global, Mobile Without Borders (200 MB roaming max), Gogo Inflight, Digits, Mobile Hotspot, Un-contract, Carrier Freedom, and T-Mobile Tuesday benefits. There are some limitations. For example, video is streamed at 480p resolution, and T-Mobile will throttle users who exceed 32 GB per month when the network is congested. Mobile Hotspot is limited to 3G, not 4G, speeds. The plan only supports two lines and requires subscribers to buy a $25 SIM starter kit per line. The plan costs $5 more per line without autopay. T-Mobile says the T-Mobile One Unlimited 55+ will be available starting August 9.
