TechCrunch: T-Mo, Verizon will launch a $20 data plan for LTE customers in the US on Tuesday, October 15.
The new plan, which is the first of its kind in the country, will offer unlimited talk, text, data, and video for $25 per month for four lines, and $30 per month, with a minimum of 10GB of data, for six lines.
The new plan will include two years of data at $25/month, and will allow customers to switch from a two-year contract to a three-year one.
Verizon is offering its own LTE data plans for $10/month for five lines, but will allow users to switch to the new $20 plan.
According to Verizon, the new plan is not the same as T-mobile’s previous $20 monthly data plan, the T-MOBILE ONE, which was available for three months and offered no tethering and data caps.
“T-Mobile ONE is the only plan that has unlimited talk and text and no data caps,” T-moobiews blog post reads.
“T-MOBO is our best deal on LTE data, with unlimited talk on four lines for $20/month with no data.”
The new T-SIM plans offer unlimited LTE data for $50/month and $75/month.
T-MoBILE One was a deal that only worked with T-mobiles older phones, but T-MMOBILES new LTE plans will work with the newer phones as well.
Verizon Wireless plans to launch a new data plan on Wednesday, October 17.
