Mobile Announces New Lower Cost 'T-Mobile Essentials' Plan

T-Mobile store T-Mobile now offers a less expensive unlimited plan
Roberta Sherman | 09 August, 2018, 16:20

T-Mobile may have said last week that they had no current plans to increase pricing on their unlimited offerings, but that doesn't mean they won't continue to make changes. Essentials doesn't include things like a free Netflix plan or the ability to use data internationally. The price of T-Mobile One Plus will also be increasing, going to $15 per month for a single line.

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. How exactly is this easier for the customer?

Priyanka Chopra swerves questions about Nick Jonas engagement
Speaking about the constant media glare on her personal life, Priyanka said, "Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I get annoyed". When asked what milestone she would like to achieve next, Priyanka said that she would love to play a man.

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. What used to be a $10 add-on for more tethering data and unlimited 3G speeds while traveling overseas, is now $15 per line. T-Mobile Essentials is designed for those who say they just want the basics: unlimited talk, text and smartphone data in the USA - all at the industry's best price, only $30 per line for a family of four with autopay. And T-Mobile ONE Plus International is $65 per line per month; yes, it adds yet more still. Wireless companies (including T-Mobile, which was contacted for this article) don't provide any guidance on average taxes, given the vast difference in how the taxes and fees are calculated and applied in different states. "They seem to be doing everything they can to turn rate plans into a hot, confusing mess". Theyve got Above Unlimited, Unlimited Plus, Beyond Unlimited, Unlimited and More…Unlimited and More Premium?! The other guys make it sooo confusing!

Is it is really stupid simple now?

The Roku Channel Is Now Available on Samsung Smart TVs & Web Browsers
The new web version of The Roku Channel is now live and can be accessed on a wide range of devices. Roku announced that it would come to Samsung Smart TVs earlier this year .

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

If you want unlimited calling, and 512 MB of up to 4G LTE data, in those countries, you can buy a $5/day 24 Hour Global Pass. Now you have to decide if you want all the extra stuff and whether you want to pay for it or not.

Alex Jones's Infowars podcasts pulled from iTunes and Spotify
While Jones said he now believes the shooting was not a hoax, he said his earlier claims were protected under US free speech laws. Facebook stressed that it was the violent language used by Jones, rather than his conspiracy theories , that prompted the move.

An individual Essentials plan is $60 per month, not including taxes and fees.
