In response to COVID-19, T-Mobile announced today that it will launch its lower priced plan options early, starting this Wednesday, March 25.
“Now more than ever, reliable connectivity is crucial. To help ensure everyone can get and stay connected affordably, T-Mobile is launching its lowest priced smartphone plan today, rather than waiting for the merger with Sprint to finalize, as originally planned. And at Metro by T-Mobile, the Un-carrier is adding lower-cost options to help individuals and families stay connected,” the company said in a press release today.
T-Mobile Connect is a new tier for the mobile carrier, first announced in November 2019. At $15 plus tax, it will be the lowest priced plan for T-Mobile, including unlimited talk and text plus 2GB high-speed smartphone data, including access to T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network. For $25/month, customers will get 5GB of data.
“Right now, having a reliable, low-cost connection is absolutely crucial for Americans, and with many facing financial strain, time is of the essence. We knew we couldn’t wait for the merger to finalize to launch T-Mobile Connect, our lowest priced smartphone plan, so we’re rolling out ahead of schedule,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “With T-Mobile Connect, we’re giving those hardest hit an even more affordable way to stay in touch. Half the price of our lowest-ever priced smartphone plan. So everyone can stay connected.”
