T-Mobile launches $15/month 5G plan ahead of time

The carrier made T-Mobile Connect available this week to help those impacted by Coronavirus.

T-Mobile announced this week it will launch T-Mobile Connect, its lowest priced smartphone plan, ahead of schedule to ensure everyone can get and stay connected affordably amid the Coronavirus outbreak. The carrier initially planned to launch T-Mobile Connect after its merger with Sprint was finalized. It will now be available as of yesterday, March 25. Meanwhile, T-Mobile will add lower-cost options for its Metro customers, too.

“Right now, having a reliable, low-cost connection is absolutely crucial for Americans, and with many facing financial strain, time is of the essence,” T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in a statement. “We knew we couldn’t wait for the merger to finalize to launch T-Mobile Connect, our lowest priced smartphone plan, so we’re rolling out ahead of schedule. With T-Mobile Connect, we’re giving those hardest hit an even more affordable way to stay in touch. Half the price of our lowest-ever priced smartphone plan. So everyone can stay connected.”

T-Mobile Connect was announced in November 2019 as part of the company’s “5G for Good.” T-Mobile Connect will cost $15 per month (plus tax), which is half of the carrier’s currently lowest price plan, for unlimited talk and text plus 2GB high-speed smartphone data as well as access to T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network. For $25 per month plus tax, T-Mobile customers can get 5GB of high-speed smartphone data. T-Mobile Connect also has an Annual Data Upgrade that gives customers an extra 500MB of monthly data annually at no additional cost for the next five years.

Metro by T-Mobile customers will receive lower priced plans, too.

For the next two months, Metro by T-Mobile is also offering a $15 plan to help its customers stay connected affordably. For 60 days after customers activate, it will cost $15 a month for unlimited talk and text, plus 2GB of high-speed smartphone data. Meanwhile new and existing Metro customers with any voice line can get a free 8” tablet through a rebate redemption that includes a $15 unlimited tablet data plan. MetroSmart Hotspot devices will be half off and the $35 per month data plan will include 20GB for the next 60 days.

“More than ever, staying connected matters – to family, friends, work, school, information,” T-Mobile said in a release. “With these moves, T-Mobile can help millions of families and individuals faced with financial stress get and stay connected.”
