Mobile Essentials plan goes back to basics

  • T-Mobile calls itself the Un-carrier and tries to undercut the prices of its competition. Its new Essentials plan is one example

There's one other detail about the Essentials plan that merits attention: the sticker price doesn't include taxes and fees, unlike the T-Mobile One plan.

T-Mobile has a new all-you-can eat plan that combines unlimited calls, messaging, and data: T-Mobile Essentials. If you use over 50GB of data per month, you may get throttled during times of congestion too. Subscribers will get unlimited talk, text, and data in the United States for $30 per line for a family of four with autopay. Lines three through to six are $15 per month each. Customers also get unlimited talk, text, and 2G data in Mexico and Canada as well unlimited texting and $0.25 per minute calling in other worldwide destinations. On the one plan, customers benefit from LTE speeds when roaming, a Netflix subscription and an allowance for in-flight data. Both T-Mobile One at $70 a month and One Plus at $80 a month aren't subject to slowdowns until after 50 GB of data.

Those who want faster mobile hotspot data or HD video streaming will still need to subscribe to the company's T-Mobile One Plus plan.

Most analysts were skeptical, but some said a deal could materialize if Musk succeeded in lining up the right funding. Public companies have four days o report certain material events that shareholders should know about to the U.S.

The plan is a viable option for those who are looking to save money on their phone bill and don't need or want Netflix and the global data.

While it may seem like the company's latest offer isn't much of a deal, T-Mobile is keeping its more powerful Netflix-included, One option around and is not changing its price. In T-Mobile's home state of Washington, the combined federal, state, and local rate is 25.6%, which is enough to bring a single line of T-Mobile Essentials to $75. If you want to take advantage of the cheap pricing, you'll need to enroll in autopay. The Un-carrier wants to make it easy. It starts at $40 per line with taxes and fees included for a family for four with autopay. If not, and you don't ever go to Canada or Mexico, then I'm not sure why you wouldn't downgrade to this new Essentials plan.

T-Mobile One Plus International, finally, is also an upgrade over ONE.
