These days it’s typical that the data associated with carrier family plans are shared. While it may work for some families, others with more data-hungry members may result in complication and overages. As of late, T-Mobile has been looking at how to aid specific pain-points in the industry. Their latest act targets the lack of value in carrier family plans.
Today, T-Mobile is launching a family plan offer that allows 4 members to get 10GB of data each for a total of $120/month. Another way to look at it is $30 a line, which is a crazy deal when you consider that lines start at $50/month with only 1GB of data.
T-Mobile comes up with that total $120/month price as a result of making the 4th line free. The base deal is really $100 for 2 lines and $20 for each line after that.
And if someone on the plan needs more data, it’s $10/month extra to double the data to 20GB, per line. This all of course includes Simple Choice benefits, such as unlimited talk/text, no data count for music streaming, data roll-over, and no charge in Mexico or Canada.
But this pricing is in fact a promotion, not permanent. It is available until September 7th. Is this enough to move you out of your current shared plan?
