T-Mobile on Thursday introduced a new option for its “Unlimited 55” plans for subscribers who are aged 55 or older. They’re much like the standard options available to customers, but about 40% cheaper per month.
The Unlimited 55 plans are available for single and two-line accounts, and include unlimited talk, text, and data. For those who have two lines on a plan, only one of the users need be aged 55 or older to qualify.
EDITOR NOTE: Updated to reflect the Essentials Unlimited 55 being the only new plan.
Essentials Unlimited 55
The newest member of the bunch, the Essentials Unlimited 55 costs $55 for two lines, or $27.50 each. A single line plan would be priced $40 per month.
Included in the plan are 3G hotspot speeds, roaming in Mexico and Canada at 2G data speeds, and texting abroad.

The Magenta Unlimited 55 runs $70 per month, or $35 each line. Seniors and boomers going it alone costs $50 per month. Taxes and fees are included in the monthly bill here.
