Only a few days after Sprint announced its revised family plans, T-Mobile has launched something of its own in a bid to take down the competition. The carrier is offering free LTE data for over an year to customers who switch over to T-Mobile from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. Existing customers will have to add a lifeline to their account and both customers will get these data benefits. For those who are already on the unlimited data plans, the carrier will offer a credit of $10 on the monthly bill for an year. You can find the complete details of this plan in T-Mobile’s statement below.
“Starting next week, whenever a T-Mobile Simple Choice customer throws a lifeline to a Sprint (or AT&T or Verizon) customer and brings them to the Un-carrier, both receive unlimited LTE data for a full year on T-Mobile’s blazing-fast LTE network, at no additional charge. T-Mobile Simple Choice customers who already have unlimited LTE data receive a $10 credit each month for twelve months.”
If there’s one thing standing in the way of T-Mobile, it’s the LTE coverage areas. The carrier doesn’t enjoy the coverage seen by the likes of AT&T or Verizon, so that might prove to be a major obstacle. However, if you’re a customer of Sprint, this deal could be very enticing, considering that both carriers are on level footing as far as LTE coverage is concerned.
