Last year, T-Mobile’s (NYSE: TMUS) free-data-for-life program changed the way
American’s think about connected tablets by serving up 200 MB of free LTE data
per month for the life of their T-Mobile tablet. Now, the Un-carrier’s making
it easier and more affordable than ever for customers to experience life with
a connected tablet−with a new offer to double your data when you add a tablet
to your Simple Choice smartphone plan on the fastest LTE network in the

Starting September 3^rd, adding a tablet – any tablet – to a postpaid Simple
Choice phone plan costs just $10 per month. And right on top of that, the
Un-carrier will match your smartphone’s LTE data plan – up to 5 GB a month –
reserved for use on your tablet. For example, a customer with a Simple Choice
smartphone plan with 5 GB of LTE data can add a tablet with another 5 GB of
data set aside for use on that tablet, for just $10 per month. That’s a total
of up to 10 GB of LTE data. And that’s all on top of the 200 MB of free LTE
data every single month for the life of your tablet.

“The old school carriers make you pay for the privilege of connecting your
tablet to their network−just to tap into the same limited pool of data you
already bought for your smartphone,” said John Legere, president and CEO of
T-Mobile. “With the Un-carrier, you can now get double the data on a network
designed for data for one simple price. It couldn’t be simpler or more

Today at AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, you can add a tablet to your account for a
monthly $10 access fee that gets you exactly zero additional data. That $10 at
the old guard carriers gives you nothing more than ‘access’ to your existing
shared data pool. And, what’s worse anyone on the account can use all your
data – leaving you stranded and racking up more fees. Who wants to run out of
data on their tablet and be charged overages all because Dad streamed Netflix
for 3 hours on his smartphone?

At T-Mobile, if you have 1 GB of LTE data on your Simple Choice smartphone
plan, you can get up to 1 GB of LTE data on your tablet. 3 GB on your phone?
Get 3 GB on your tablet. 5 GB? Get 5 GB on your tablet – for just $80 per
month. Pay nearly the same amount at Verizon, AT&T or Sprint and get less than
half the value – or worse.

Shared Data Bucket        NA         $40       $40    $40

Tablet Access            $10       $10      $10   $10
Total Monthly Cost        $80        $80       $75    $75
Total LTE Data            10.2GB     1GB       2GB    4GB

“Our tablets are the most data-hungry devices we have, and yet most people
live in fear of using their tablet outside of the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot
because of those crazy overage fees the big telecoms hold over their
customers’ heads,” said Mike Sievert, chief marketing officer for T-Mobile.
“T-Mobile customers live in a different reality. T-Mobile customers can use
their tablets worry free – on a network designed data strong – without the
fear of bill shock or those ridiculous overage fees.”
