After OpenSignal declares network results & Verizon caves-in on unlimited data, Un-carrier puts Verizon on notice, includes HD video and 10 GB high-speed Mobile Hotspot with T-Mobile ONE
Celebrates with offer of two lines for just $100 on T-Mobile ONE – WITH monthly taxes and fees included
Bellevue, Washington — February 13, 2017 — The results are in, and the facts are clear. Verizon’s lost their network advantage and had to cave-in on unlimited data. And, because this was all so predictably “carrier” of them, the Un-carrier was ready. Days after OpenSignal ranked T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) and Verizon tied on speed and neck and neck on LTE availability(only in English), Verizon began pitching its own unlimited plan today, reversing course on all their previous rhetoric about unlimited data. And today, T-Mobile announced the addition of HD video and 10GB high-speed Mobile Hotspot data to T-Mobile ONE – all at no extra charge – and all with monthly taxes and fees included. Right on top of that, the Un-carrier introduced a new offer of two lines on T-Mobile ONE for just $100.
"I don't blame Verizon for caving. They just lost their network advantage. T-Mobile and Verizon's networks are at parity, and Verizon knows it … and more importantly, more and more customers know it. Their back's against the wall," said John Legere, president and CEO at T-Mobile. "This is what the Un-carrier does-drag the carriers kicking and screaming into the future. Next up, we're going to force them to include monthly taxes and fees. Mark my words."
These upgrades are available starting this Friday, February 17, at no extra charge for customers on T-Mobile ONE. Customers can simply activate their new features in the T-Mobile app or at my.t-mobile.com. Customers will get HD quality video streaming and up to 10GB of high-speed Mobile Hotspot data per month, so they can 'tether' a laptop or other device to access the Internet. And, after the included 10GB of high-speed data, customers still get unlimited 3G data through the end of the month.
The Un-carrier today also announced a killer new deal for T-Mobile ONE with two lines. Also starting this Friday, February 17, new and existing T-Mobile customers can now get two lines of T-Mobile ONE with monthly taxes and fees included for just $100 per month.
T-Mobile is kicking off this screaming, limited-time deal to celebrate T-Mobile's wins in the OpenSignal report - the most extensive test of LTE network speed and customer experience based on 4.6 BILLION actual user experiences. That study found the Un-carrier's LTE network is just as fast as Verizon's and with nearly equal LTE availability. T-Mobile customers get an LTE signal about as often as Verizon customers. That fact underscores the expansive breadth of T-Mobile's LTE coverage, which now reaches 313 million people and covers more than 99% as many people as Verizon.
OpenSignal isn’t alone in recognizing T-Mobile’s network gains. T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is also recognized as America’s fastest according to independent third-party data from Speedtest.net, the FCC and Twin Prime. Like OpenSignal, those tests are also based on tens of millions of real-time, crowd-sourced tests by millions of real customers, not paid consultants, using their own devices where they live, work and play.
T-Mobile ONE with monthly taxes and fees included is just $40 a line for a family of four with autopay (and yes, you can use a credit card! And, no, that's not an "introductory price" like Verizon's). That also includes unlimited talk, text and high-speed data on the nation's fastest LTE network in the US, Canada and Mexico, as well as free data roaming in 140+ countries and destinations.
Don't forget, with T-Mobile Kickback, you get PAID BACK up to $10 per line when you use less data. And only T-Mobile offers the Un-contract pricing guarantee, so ONLY you have the power to change the price you pay.

El uso en un dispositivo tendrá prioridad sobre el uso a través de la capacidad de enlace, lo que podría brindar velocidades más rápidas al usar los datos en un dispositivo.

Kickback on qualifying lines with <2GB data usage in previous bill cycle. Must make on-time payments; must activate by end of bill cycle & be active/in good standing when credit applied.
