T-Mobile Debuts New No-Contract Plans
Message to T-Mobile subscribers
Smartphone mobile hotspot is free. (save $14.99) 500MB of data, also included free with the plan (save $10.00). The buckets of data now go up to over 12 Gigabytes in increments of two (2.5gb, 4.5gb, 6.5gb, 8.5gb, 10.5gb, 12.5 gb).
Mobile broadband rate plans, the majority of them, have had the prices HALVED.
There is no reason to remain on an old classic or value plan when these new plans offer MORE service, have NO contract, and cost less. I should point out, I don't make comission, but I like doing my best for the customer, and these new plans are nearly perfect.
Oh - also, the Add-a-lines (3rd, 4th, 5th line on a family plan) no longer get 500 Minutes.... they get...
well said though.
prepaid seem to be the wave of the future as well as value type plans (which the announcement) for that is shortly too
Lets say you are a customer that is currently paying extra for Smartphone Mobile Hotspot ($14.99), or you have upgraded your data feature ($15.00) to get free SMHS. You'll save that much.
Lets say you're a customer who has the 200MB data feature, and is paying $5 to $10 for that (classic or value). New plans More than double that, include SMHS for no cost, and also include that amount of data for no cost. Before, 200MB $10.00 + SMHS $14.99 = $24.99.
Now, 500MB + SMHS = $0
Before 2GB + SMHS = $34.99 (classic)
Now 2.5GB + SMHS = $20.00. (classic)
Value plans cost less, value plans save you even more.
Its a win-win situation.
you can get unlimted talk, txt and 500MB of data that you can use for hotspot for 49.99 + unlimited data no caps for 20.00( no hotspot) for a total of 69.99.. you can use the 500MB for hotspot and if its not enough you can add another 2G for hotspot for 20.00 extra.. this is good for business because you can use the phone unli internet for regular usage without the 2.5 gig being affected that you can use for your hotspot and if 2.5gig is not enough, you can add anotrher 2 gig anytime for the same price. .
Wait, wait... wait...
You mean a carrier actuially listened to what people want, and is offering it at a great price?
IMPOSSIBLE. We must be in some kind of Mirror universe, where every has a goatee, and if you're bad, you go into the agonizer.
But seriously - no more paying for a phone you arent getting. This is as transparent as a carrier can get, this is a great thing for the industry. We're really excited here at T-Mobile about this.
Z10 LTE, HTC One coming soon, iPhone coming soon, LTE network that is upgradable to LTE-A, Galaxy Note II getting an update to unlock the LTE radios, no more contracts, free mobile hotspot, Free data, additional lines getting fully unlimited minutes.
T-Mobile is back.

T-mobile Note 2 uses: 1.7/2.1GHz spectrum, 1.9ghz also (from failed merger) i havnt read anything that says that T-mobile will be utilizing their 700mhz, if they have any, for LTE.
so you might be able to given the fact that they are using the other spectrums but cant give a definitive answer.

"According to PhonesReview, T-Mobile anticipates that its LTE network will be accessible to over 200 million A...
...BUT, if you want LTE access, you don't need to deal with verizon anymore.
I should also point out - the ONLY single reason they allow their customers to have free Mobile Hotspot is becuase the law says they must, something that was specified in their 700mhz spectrum auction.
T-Mobile's spectrum does NOT have the same restriction, but hey, they give it to you for free! They are not legally obligated to, but do anyways. Just for the hell of it.
So, how does Verizon look now ?
1. acquire spectrum
2. pay heavily on subsidies
3. pay a lot for their employees and overhead
4. pay a lot on their network
because of the above 4 they have the right to charge any price point they want; however, that will backfire in the end. low cost/ ("value") proposition is where people want to be. Rich Brome actually nailed it with his article. I also wrote something on this for my MBA thesis. it was interesting to see that we had similar ideas.
