T-Mobile has already hit back with new additions to its own unlimited plan to match Big Red’s just after the announcement of Verizon.
T-Mobile U.S. CEO John Legere went on a tweetstorm to even the unlimited playing field.
In addition to slamming Verizon for copying its T-Mobile One unlimited plan, losing its network advantage, and still advertising that people don’t need unlimited data plans, Legere announced T-Mobile One, the company’s unlimited data plan, will also get HD-quality video streaming and 10GB of 4G LTE hotspot data for tethering starting on Friday.
Existing T-Mobile One customers will automatically be upgraded with the two new features at no extra charge on Friday, Feb. 17.
To sweeten the deal, T-Mobile is also offering a limited-time promotion that gets you two lines on its unlimited data plan for $100 (regular cost for two lines is $120). In comparison, two lines on Verizon Unlimited will run you $140.
With the addition of HD video streaming and 10GB of 4G LTE hotspot data, T-Mobile One is now the better deal since customers will get 6GB more of 4G LTE data (28GB on T-Mobile One vs. 22GB on Verizon Unlimited) before speeds are potentially throttled, and end up paying less per month.
