T-Mobile is eliminating a huge pain point for an entire generation.
Starting August 9th, qualified customers can get two lines of T-Mobile ONE for just $60, taxes and fees included. The deal comes with unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data.
T-Mobile’s new plan compares well to competitor AT&T’s Senior Nation plan, which costs a similar $29.99 a month per line for customers over 65. But AT&T’s plan offers only 200 anytime minutes, 500 night and weekend minutes, and unlimited calling to other AT&T customers. The AT&T’s Senior Nation plan is “only eligible for basic phones and not eligible on smartphones or tablets.”
In a video explaining the plan, T-Mobile CEO John Legere says the new Unlimited 55+ offering is meant to give seniors a full-fledged cellphone plan for smartphones and modern devices.
“For years, the carriers have been patronizing the generation that invented wireless, says Legere. “They thank these mobile pioneers by selling dumbed down ‘senior’ plans with exactly zero data and — get this — night and weekend minutes! That’s not just idiotic — it’s insulting!” said Legere. “Today, the Un-carrier ends this ridiculousness with T-Mobile ONE Unlimited 55+ — an offer that recognizes how Boomers and beyond actually use their smartphones!”
Here is Legere’s video:
“When this generation was getting their first phones, AT&T and Verizon were the only real options—and the Duopoly has been taking advantage of them ever since!” said Legere. “Where the Duopoly sees another group to patronize and monetize, we see an opportunity to bring the Un-carrier revolution to more people not getting the service or respect they deserve.”
Starting August 9, new customers age 55 and older can stop by a local store to sign up. Current eligible customers can get T-Mobile ONE Unlimited 55+ by calling 1.800.TMOBILE, going to https://www.t-mobile.com or visiting a local retail store.
