T-Mobile ONE Plus Now Starts at $15 Per Month Extra, Unlimited LTE Tethering Still $25 Per Month Extra

by

T-Mobile has announced that ONE Plus, its premium upgrade option for T-Mobile ONE, is now available for $15 per month, rather than $25 per month as charged previously, but without unlimited tethering at up to 4G LTE speeds.

For $15 per month per line, T-Mobile ONE Plus customers still get unlimited HD video streaming, unlimited international data roaming at up to 3G speeds, unlimited monthly Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi, Voicemail to Text, and Name ID call protection.

A new $25 per month tier called T-Mobile ONE Plus International continues to offer those add-ons plus unlimited tethering at up to 4G LTE speeds and Stateside International Talk for unlimited calling from the U.S to landlines in 70+ countries and mobile numbers in 30+ countries, along with discounted calling to 200+ countries.

The cheaper ONE Plus and new ONE Plus International upgrade options became available on Tuesday. Customers already paying $25 per month for the old ONE Plus option will be automatically upgraded to ONE Plus International, and must call or visit a T-Mobile store to switch to the cheaper $15 per month option.

The base T-Mobile ONE plan itself offers unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data for $70 per month. A second line can be added for $50 per month, while up to six more lines can be added for an additional $20 per month each. The total cost for a family of four, for example, would be $160 per month.

Simple Choice is a lot better than T-Mobile One. I'll keep my grandfathered plan. Too bad T-Mobile eliminated Simple Choice.

If you don't mind sharing, what area/county of SoCal? Here in Orange County I get excellent T-Mo coverage and speeds on my iPhone 7 :)

My brother lives in Glendale and he says it's great there. My brother-in-law works in Manhattan Beach and he says it's good there too. I live in the Loma Linda/Redlands area and anywhere I drive on a day-to-day basis (Loma Linda, Redlands, Colton, San Bernardino, Highland, etc) are all awful.

They haven't eliminated it. You just have to ask for it. Just got 2 lines with Simple Choice and saved about $40 a month ($80 vs $120). It only makes sense to get T-Mobile One when you have at least 4 lines unless you need unlimited data for some reason. 2GB a month is doing just fine now that streaming doesn't eat up any data. Make sure to turn off app upgrade over cellular though or you can get wiped out in a day on a very bad day (many upgrades available).

I just switched to T-Mobile but this article is confusing as heck. They currently have 2 "unlimited" options. One that was $50 a month for 2GB of LTE (how this is unlimited I still don't know) and $70 for their "real unlimited." WTH are these plans supposed to be? Honestly, now that all the streaming services are included, I'm not even sure why I have the unlimited...

I tether my phone to my mac. Then mac shared the internet thought Ethernet to a wifi router. My average speed is 21 Mbps.

If you don't mind me asking, about how much do you pay monthly to do this. I also wonder if you could do it with a mobile hotspot.

Oh, and does your mac need to be running i.e. Not in sleep mode?
