T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere is in New York City with the T-Mobile crew to present Uncarrier 9.0. This particular event ups the ante for T-Mobile public relations and their business customers.
The best price is the only price for everyone (in terms of business lines). Unlimited talk & text plus 1GB of 4G LTE data, at $15 per line at 20+ lines; at 1,000 lines a business can get each line priced at $10. Adding more data per line is accomplished per line, or per pool. In pooled purchasing of additional 4G LTE data for business users, $4.75 per gigabyte (an overage over the gig is still $4.75) is the price for a pool (say a 100GB pool).
To help invigorate the use of websites for businesses: T-Mobile has partnered with GoDaddy (!) to supply a free .com domain and website plan, as long as a single business line is activated. For a custom .com email, T-Mobile has also partnered with Microsoft, for customized email addresses.
Business family discounts are also being introduced, says Legere. Employees’ families save up to 50% when a business line is activated at T-Mobile, since family members are added as lines, rather than as completely new customers.
But, don’t fret: consumers will experience a different plan, called Carrier Freedom, which allows T-Mobile to pay the ETF up to $650, now including devices and the plan.
Legere, also states he’s bringing the contract back — in a new format, called the Un-Contract. It’s a consumer commitment that makes promotional plans permanent. Fixed plans won’t be changed, and unlimited plans will not be changed in price (but it might go down) or availability for the next two years.
