Mobile Essential plan debuts with unlimited basics

Mobile Essential plan debuts with unlimited basics

T-Mobile Essentials does without the usual add-ons of worldwide data access, unlimited mobile hotspot, and other features, in the name of keeping the price down every month. A second line runs $30 per month; lines 3-6 cost just $15 per month.

T-Mobile revealed most of the details of Essentials, but the basics are that it's supposed to be a plan that only includes unlimited talk, text, and data. T-Mobile will throttle Essential customers more than its other unlimited data plans, noting that "during times and places with heavy network demand, Essentials customers may notice slower speeds than other customers". T-Mobile ONE Plus is $50 per line per month, but again comes with more. Lines three through to six are $15 per month each.

T-Mobile's new plan may serve to continue to drag down the carrier's average revenue per user. Essentials includes unlimited talk, text, and 2G data when roaming, but only in Canada and Mexico. For $10/month, subscribers can purchase 10GB of high-speed 4G LTE mobile hotspot data.

Of course, most people want more, and that's why T-Mobile ONE is the Un-carrier's most popular option, setting the bar across the industry. They've got Above Unlimited, Unlimited Plus, Beyond Unlimited, Unlimited and More...

Indonesia quake death toll almost triples to 347
Officials have said that the death toll will likely rise as rescuers continue to sift through the rubble. Officials said the epicenter of the aftershock was on land and so there was no risk of a tsunami.

Although it comes with unlimited services, the Essentials plan is stripped down compared to numerous other plans you'd find at T-Mobile and other carriers. Sign up today to get wireless news and updates delivered to your inbox and read on the go.

The plan is a viable option for those who are looking to save money on their phone bill and don't need or want Netflix and the worldwide data. As you might expect, though, the savings only really kick in when you activate multiple lines.

Overall, if you don't need extras like global calling, the T-Mobile Essentials plan will let you save a few bucks. This might make things complicated for current and potential T-Mobile customers. The carrier's other plans cost more, but have more features. It starts at $40 per line with taxes and fees included for a family for four with autopay.
