T-Mobile Intros New, Cheaper Small Biz Plans
T-Mobile today announced out new small business plans called Business Unlimited. The three new options offer a better value than the existing Magenta for Business plans in several ways. The cheapest option is as low as $25/line/month, cheaper than before. The most premium plan is now as low as $40/line, $5/month cheaper than Magenta Max for Business while offering similar features. The cheapest multi-line pricing also kicks in at just six lines instead of eight, and all plans now include much more high-speed mobile hotspot data. All include unlimited talk and text, as well as 5G access. The plans are:
- Business Unlimited Select: For $25/line/month (with at least six lines and AutoPay), this offers 50 GB of speedy "Premium Data", 5 GB high-speed mobile hotspot, unlimited talk, text, and 2G data in Canada and Mexico, and unlimited texting and 2G data overseas. Although T-Mobile advertises 50 GB of Premium Data for this plan, the fine print says "During congestion, ... customers choosing lower-prioritized plans (Select) may notice lower speeds than other customers". T-Mobile confirmed to Phone Scoop that this mean this plan has "a lower prioritization level, similar to Metro or T-Mobile Essentials" for data speeds. The other two plans do not have this limitation.
- Business Unlimited Advanced: For $30/line, this ups the Premium Data to 100 GB (with top priority) and the high-speed mobile hotspot to 40 GB. It also adds 1 hour of Gogo In-Flight Wi-Fi, 5 GB high-speed data in Canada and Mexico, Microsoft 365 on Us, and HD video streaming.
- Business Unlimited Ultimate: For $40/line, this steps up to truly unlimited Premium Data on each smartphone, 100 GB high-speed mobile hotspot, and Unlimited Gogo In-Flight Wi-Fi. It also offers 2x faster data internationally (256 kbps) and 4K video streaming.
