Mobile Introduces New "Essentials" Plan, Starting at $60

Mobile Introduces New

The "Un-carrier" says the T-Mobile Essentials plan is for those who "just want the basics". If not, and you don't ever go to Canada or Mexico, then I'm not sure why you wouldn't downgrade to this new Essentials plan.

One line of T-Mobile Essentials costs $60/month, $30/month for the second line, and $15/month for lines 3-6. Essentials includes unlimited talk, text, and 2G data when roaming, but only in Canada and Mexico. Without the latter, each line will be $5 per month more. Video streaming on the new plan is limited to 480p quality, and during times of network congestion, T-Mobile Essentials customers may encounter slower speeds.

T-Mobile has a new all-you-can eat plan that combines unlimited calls, messaging, and data: T-Mobile Essentials. T-Mobile ONE has all the value and extras that most customers want - the industry's best travel benefits, Netflix included for families, unlimited mobile hotspot and so much more - for just $40 per line, taxes and fees included, for a family of four with autopay. In T-Mobile's home state of Washington, the combined federal, state, and local rate is 25.6%, which is enough to bring a single line of T-Mobile Essentials to $75. And Verizon charges $80 for the first line of service on its cheapest "gounlimited" plan. Customers also get unlimited talk, text, and 2G data in Mexico and Canada as well unlimited texting and $0.25 per minute calling in other worldwide destinations.

Margot Robbie Instagrams First Look At Her As Sharon Tate
DiCaprio previously shared his own first look on Instagram , posting a shot of himself and Pitt in character. A United Kingdom release date hasn't been announced yet.

One other tidbit in today's announcement is that T-Mobile is increasing the high-speed mobile hotspot allotment included with T-Mobile One Plus. Wireless companies (including T-Mobile, which was contacted for this article) don't provide any guidance on average taxes, given the vast difference in how the taxes and fees are calculated and applied in different states.

For starters, the advertised $30 rate is only good for a family of four (or more) with autopay enabled (pricing starts at $60 for a single line and scales down as more lines are added).

Costs aside, it's a bad look for T-Mobile to be adding a new "unlimited" option that doesn't include taxes and fees. The other options debuted many months ago.
