Mobile to launch cheaper ‘Essentials’ plan

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

Called the T-Mobile Essentials plan, it offers only the basics, without numerous extras that T-Mobile has become known for.

The pricing breaks down as follows: The first line on T-Mobile Essentials costs $60 per month, while the second costs $30.

The new Essentials plan is still unlimited like T-Mobile ONE only it doesnt offer a couple of the carrier's perks. During times and places with heavy network demand, Essentials customers may notice slower speeds than other customers. If you don't choose autopay, the prices are $5 more expensive per line per month.

T-Mobile is making it a little easier for you to get service you want at an affordable rate. It offers unlimited talk, text and smartphone data. Essentials includes unlimited mobile hotspot use, but capped at 3G speeds. 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. Oh, and you won't get that free subscription to Netflix.

Spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said there are reports of other deaths but they still need to be verified. A green and yellow dome rested on the pile of rubble, the only part of the structure still intact.

No changes are being made to the earlier T-Mobile One and One Plus plans. As mentioned. Netflix is included with both plans. All of those prices are with autopay enabled; if you forgo autopay, you'll pay $5/month extra per line. T-Mobile commissioned a survey in which "a whopping 86 percent of respondents "it is wrong for the price on your monthly wireless bill to be more than the advertised price" and said "wireless carriers should include taxes and fees in the prices they advertise", T-Mobile crowed in its press release".

The new offer sees T-Mobile introducing a three-tier system in its plans.

T-Mobile's LTE network has tripled in size over the last three years and now reaches almost every American! Increasingly, we're seeing providers bundle in all sorts of features and services with their plans to differentiate their offering from the competition or seemingly offer a better value. Is T-Mobile still the UnCarrier?

T-Mobile has always been transparent, and this move is a step backwards for the carriers entire UnCarrier movement, the last of which was UnCarrier "Next": which included the movement to eliminate taxes and fees.
