Last year, T-Mobile’s free-data-for-life program debuted for connected iPads by serving up 200 MB of free LTE data per month for the life of their T-Mobile iPad. Now, the Un-carrier’s making it easier and more affordable than ever for customers to experience life with a connected iPad − with a new offer to double your data when you add an iPad to your Simple Choice smartphone plan on the fastest LTE network in the nation.
Starting September 3rd, adding an iPad to a postpaid Simple Choice phone plan costs just $10 per month. And right on top of that, the Un-carrier will match your smartphone’s LTE data plan – up to 5 GB a month – reserved for use on your iPad. For example, a customer with a Simple Choice smartphone plan with 5 GB of LTE data can add an iPad with another 5 GB of data set aside for use on that iPad, for just $10 per month. That’s a total of up to 10 GB of LTE data. And that’s all on top of the 200 MB of free LTE data every single month for the life of your iPad.
“The old school carriers make you pay for the privilege of connecting your tablet to their network−just to tap into the same limited pool of data you already bought for your smartphone,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile, in a statement. “With the Un-carrier, you can now get double the data on a network designed for data for one simple price. It couldn’t be simpler or more straightforward.”
Today at AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, you can add a tablet to your account for a monthly $10 access fee that gets you exactly zero additional data. That $10 at the old guard carriers gives you nothing more than ‘access’ to your existing shared data pool.
At T-Mobile, if you have 1 GB of LTE data on your Simple Choice iPhone plan, you can get up to 1 GB of LTE data on your iPad. 3 GB on your iPhone? Get 3 GB on your iPad. 5 GB? Get 5 GB on your iPad – for just $80 per month. Pay nearly the same amount at Verizon, AT&T or Sprint and get less than half the value – or worse.
“Our tablets are the most data-hungry devices we have, and yet most people live in fear of using their tablet outside of the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot because of those crazy overage fees the big telecoms hold over their customers’ heads,” said Mike Sievert, chief marketing officer for T-Mobile, in a statement. “T-Mobile customers live in a different reality. T-Mobile customers can use their tablets worry free – on a network designed data strong – without the fear of bill shock or those ridiculous overage fees.”
