Mobile Essentials Is a New Unlimited Plan for $60 a Month

It's virtually useless (and often times more costly), however, if you only need the basics and that's where T-Mobile's new Essentials plan comes in.

In brief: T-Mobile's new unlimited plan could be an attractive offer for some but be wary of the details - taxes and fees aren't rolled in and you'll be the first to be throttled during times of network congestion.

T-Mobile Essentials offers the bare necessities - unlimited talk, text and data in the USA - for just $30 per month.

T-Mobile's new plan may serve to continue to drag down the carrier's average revenue per user. With that said, it does include hotspot data at 3G speeds, 2G data use in Canada and Mexico, and 480p (DVD) quality video streaming.

T-Mobile introduced a less expensive version of its unlimited plan, offering four lines of no-frills service for $120.

De Lille expected to resign as Cape Town mayor: DA sources
She has been accused of nepotism and maladministration, and Cape Town got its first qualified audit in many years under her watch. DA leader Mmusi Maimane said the party would "begin the process of electing a new mayor with immediate effect".

If you want those services, you'll need to bump your plan to the T-Mobile One or similar plans from Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T.

T-Mobile Essentials will be available beginning August 10th.

For a single line of service, T-Mobile's new Essentials unlimited plan sits just above the carrier's cheapest MetroPCS prepaid plan, which goes for $50 for the first line. Unlike this wireless device provider's other unlimited plans, a Netflix subscription is not included. If you'd like to upgrade to 4G LTE mobile hotspot, you can pay $10 per month to get 10GB at LTE speeds. If you just want a plan for your smartphone and don't need extras like Netflix or add-ons for heavy worldwide usage, the new T-Mobile Essentials plan can help you save a little cash each month.

Having more options is always a good thing, and that's what T-Mobile Essentials gives T-Mo customers. Without autopay, it's an extra $5 per month, per line. It offers unlimited talk, text and smartphone data.
