Mobile’s latest unlimited plan cuts out the extras

T-Mobile store

T-Mobile now offers a less expensive unlimited plan

One line of T-Mobile Essentials costs $60/month, $30/month for the second line, and $15/month for lines 3-6.

The Wireless industry is an ever-changing world where big ideas come along daily. "During times and places with heavy network demand, Essentials customers may notice slower speeds than other customers", T-Mobile warned in a statement.

T-Mobile just added a third unlimited data plan for your iPhone or Android.

T-Mobile's new plan may serve to continue to drag down the carrier's average revenue per user. Customers will receive unlimited talk, text, and data, as well as unlimited 3G mobile hotspot data, 2G data in Canada and Mexico, and T-Mobile's free texting and low-rate calling in over 210 countries.

Keep in mind that to get to those prices, you need to agree to pay account taxes and enable auto payments.

There will be some extras available for the T-Mobile Essentials plan for customers who need them.

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. But if you don't have autopay set up, that will cost you $5 more per line.

Overall, if you don't need extras like global calling, the T-Mobile Essentials plan will let you save a few bucks.

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.

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. The add-on now offers 10GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot data, but that'll be bumped up to 20GB starting August 10th. The other options debuted many months ago. The price of T-Mobile One Plus will also be increasing, going to $15 per month for a single line.
