T-Mobile US Inc. is cutting the price of its lowest-cost service earlier than planned in response to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, a new step after other wireless carriers have waived late fees and extra charges for people affected by the crisis.

Starting Wednesday, T-Mobile is offering a pay-as-you-go plan with 2 gigabytes of data for $15 a month. The offer is half the price of the previous one and was scheduled to launch after the company’s takeover of Sprint Corp. is completed next month.
