The US government continues to think about the possible merger from T-Mobile with Sprint to. This has not stopped T-Mobile from giving its most popular phone plan a new name and additional benefits, but at the expense of a bit more complexity.
T-Mobile today launches Magenta and Magenta Plus to replace the existing T-Mobile One and One Plus plans, offering the same features as before with three new features. The first big change is that, unlike the T-Mobile One baseline, Magenta now includes 3GB of 4G LTE hotspot data for free, using 3G speed when using hotspot data over 3GB. Previously, T-Mobile customers had to switch to the more expensive One Plus plan, which includes $ 15 per month for one line or $ 10 per line for accounts two or more lines.
Second, Magenta is making the deal a bit more complicated for customers using T-Mobile's Netflix on Us program to receive free Netflix subscriptions with T-Mobile One customers. With the Netflix price increase coming into force this summer, Magenta will include a Netflix Basic-Sub, which will stream standard-definition rather than Full HD video, unlike the previously included Netflix Standard Sub ,
Existing T-Mobile One customers with Netflix on Us will receive a monthly fee of $ 2 for their Netflix Standard subscriptions to reflect increased Netflix pricing. If you do not want to spend extra dough, T-Mobile's One Plan customers can avoid these fees by deactivating Netflix on Us or switching to Magenta before July to downgrade to Netflix Basic.
lure more users to switch to magenta. From 2 June, T-Mobile will also introduce a new rebate system that will allow customers of other mobile operators to rebate when they sign up for a new T-Mobile rate. Discounts are granted in increments of 5 USD (5 USD, 10 USD or 15 USD discount). Savings of up to $ 15 for a single line or up to $ 30 for accounts with two or more lines are possible.
Allowable discounts include all discounts for corporate, partner, military or senior services. However, to receive the offer, you must have verified your latest invoice from Verizon, AT & T or Sprint in a T-Mobile retail store. There is also a new deal that will bring customers up to $ 900 off a second device after purchasing a new phone and adding a new line to their account.
All in all, T-Mobile's new plan seems to be a relatively simple upgrade to the old One plan, while the company's love for Pink doubles. However, for a plan focused on simplifying the introduction of taxes and additional fees in a single lump sum, the added complication of Netflix's price increase is somewhat unfortunate.
