T-Mobile ends overage fees, calls for other carriers to do the same

overages

T-Mobile is calling on all wireless providers to put an end to the high fees that pain customers in the event of a data overage. T-Mobile president and CEO John Legere on Monday confirmed that effective June 2014 the carrier will no longer charge overage fees. T-Mobile customers who subscribe to plans with usage caps will instead find slowed data speeds should they exceed their data limits. What’s more, the outspoken leader has called on the other providers to do the same.

“Today I’m laying down a challenge to AT&T, Verizon and Sprint to join T-Mobile in ending these outrageous overage penalties for all consumers – because it’s the right thing to do. Overage fees are flat out wrong.”

If you agree with Legere and want to help put a stop to the fees you can sign a petition on Change.org.
