In its bid to get a leg up on the other three nationwide carriers T-Mobile has kicked off yet another promotion. Recently the company started a promotion which promises a year’s worth of LTE data for those who convince their friends to switch from their current carriers to Magenta. The latest promotion is aimed at those subscribers who are using T-Mobile Simple Starter plans, for just an additional $5 per month the carrier will offer them quadruple LTE data.
T-Mobile announced the Simple Starter plan back in May. Apart from offering unlimited talk and text it gives subscribers 500MB of LTE data for $40 per month. Starting September 3rd, these customers can get 2GB of LTE data for just $5 extra per month.
John Legere, the president and CEO of T-Mobile, claims that “people who use loads of data use T-Mobile.” He also criticized the other nationwide carriers for charging overage and other fees when people use more data on their networks. Legere cited Verizon’s $50 plan, “use just on gig more data, and the price jumps to $65. It’s crazy,” he says.
The carrier has pointed out though that this promotion is being run for a limited time, so if you’re interested in 2GB LTE data on your $40 T-Mobile plan, it would be best to add the extra data for just $5 per month before the promotion ends.
