Un-carrier celebrates results of OpenSignal’s new report on network performance
by giving families more of its blazing fast LTE with its best-ever price on its 10 GB and Unlimited LTE plans
Bellevue, Washington — February 3, 2016 — Just yesterday, in its 2016 State of Mobile Networks report, OpenSignal confirmed T-Mobile’s not only fast “closing the gap with Verizon” in LTE coverage, but is still delivering America’s fastest 4G LTE network. Today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) is celebrating the results with its best-ever pricing for families on the Un-carrier’s most popular 10 GB and Unlimited LTE plans for a limited time. And, not only is T-Mobile dropping prices on these plans with Family Match, but the Un-carrier is also giving families the 4th line free—for a truly unmatched deal.
With this deal, families can now get four lines of Unlimited LTE for their smartphones for the unheard of price of $150 total per month for the entire family. Plus, families (and small businesses) can add more lines of Unlimited LTE for just $30 each—up to a total of 12 lines. Or families can get two lines for just $100 per month with 10 GB per line (20 GB total)—no sharing! Or four lines with 10 GB per line (40 GB total) for $120 per month for the whole family—just $30 per line!
“Over the past year alone, we’ve more than doubled the reach of our LTE coverage, so more people than ever can now ride America’s fastest 4G LTE network,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Last year, I told you we’d massively expand our LTE coverage, and we did. I promised we’d compete nearly everywhere with Verizon’s LTE network, and win. And that’s exactly what real-time, crowd-sourced studies are now confirming.”
OpenSignal’s most recent tests have concluded what other real-world, crowd-sourced test results have been pointing to—T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is fastest and fast closing the gap with Verizon on coverage reach. In fact, last year, T-Mobile more than doubled its LTE footprint, adding nearly 1 million square miles of coverage, and the Un-carrier now covers 97% of the people Verizon reaches—and with a faster 4G LTE network.
T-Mobile’s Family Match means that families save more when everyone in the family gets extra data on their wireless plan.
