Mobile Launches $15/Month 5G Wireless Plan, But There's A Major Catch

T-Mobile today announced three new low-priced service plans that seem designed for people who need to make a lot of voice calls but are mostly leaning on Wi-Fi for data.

T-Mobile has announced a series of new steps it's taking to help Americans impacted by the coronavirus crisis, which include everything from launching its most affordable plan yet (for $15/month, offering unlimited talk and text plus 2GB of data).

There's a $25 Connect service tier too, bumping up your high-speed (4G LTE and 5G) data bucket from 2 to 5 gigs per month, and naturally, that option is eligible for a nice Annual Data Upgrade as well. Thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform, almost every flagship smartphone launching this year with have 5G capabilities.

"Right now, having a reliable, low-priced connection is absolutely crucial for Americans, and with many facing financial strain, time is of the essence", T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in a statement.

As for why T-Mobile has pushed up the launch of Connect, I think we all know that there is an at-risk population in this country that could certainly benefit from a less expensive cell plan.

Mahoning Valley cases now sit at 21; there are 18 confirmed cases in Mahoning County and three confirmed cases in Trumbull County. On Saturday, DeWine ordered the closure of adult day centers for individuals with developmental disabilities and Lt Gov.

In unrelated news, the company is on track to complete its $26 billion acquisition of Sprint after a federal judge in recent weeks sided with T-Mobile in an antitrust lawsuit brought by a group of state attorneys general trying to stop the merger.

T-Mobile Connect will be available starting March 25th.

T-Mobile Connect was first announced in November 2019 as part of the New T-Mobile Un-carrier 1.0 announcements. However, that rate will only be offered for the next two months and subscribers who sign on to the plan will only receive it for two billing cycles before they begin to pay the usual rate of $30 per month.

T-Mobile Connect will cost $15 per month plus tax, as mentioned already. Similar to T-Mobile Connect. Which is the most affordable plan that Metro by T-Mobile now offers.

On top of that, new and current Metro customers that have a voice line can also get a free 8-inch table, with a $15 unlimited tablet data plan. That's double the normal monthly data amount for this plan.
