Mobile Unveils 'Essentials' Unlimited Plan For Customers On A Budget

T-Mobile Essentials is a new and cheaper unlimited plan with a few caveats

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 has announced the launch of a new lower cost "T-Mobile Essentials" plan for customers who just want the basics.

One other tidbit: T-Mobile will throttle Essentials data speeds when its network is congested. T-Mobile ONE Plus is $50 per line per month, but again comes with more. One Plus costs an additional Dollars 10 per line per month.

What's not included in T-Mobile Essentials are features like free Netflix for family plans.

For the money, customers will get unlimited talk, text, and high speed data. On the one plan, customers benefit from LTE speeds when roaming, a Netflix subscription and an allowance for in-flight data. T-Mobile One is $160 for four lines.

Although it comes with unlimited services, the Essentials plan is stripped down compared to numerous other plans you'd find at T-Mobile and other carriers. "T-Mobile Essentials is a plan for people who predominantly use their phone domestically", the carrier says, pointing frequent travelers in the direction of T-Mobile ONE instead. Well have to wait until T-Mobile releases its terms and conditions for the new plan to see exactly which of the T-Mobile perks it will or will not include. Subscribers can still take advantage of the company's T-Mobile Tuesday's app and its weekly offers such as discounted movie rentals. The Un-carrier wants to make it easy. This might make things complicated for current and potential T-Mobile customers. Increasingly, we're seeing providers bundle in all sorts of features and services with their plans to differentiate their offering from the competition or seemingly offer a better value. Without autopay, it's $5 more per line.

T-Mobile One Plus International, finally, is also an upgrade over ONE. Oftentimes, the only way to find out what you'd actually be paying in taxes and fees is to start the application process for a new line, which requires proof of residency and is therefore hard to do.
