T-Mobile giving family plan customers 10GB of data for each line


Family plans can be very costly because carriers typically do not create any value for more lines. The trend right now is for carriers to offer a large pool of shared data so that overages are less likely to occur. This seems like a good idea until one or two people burn through the data and everyone else is left with little wiggle room. T-Mobile, which never serves customers with overages, is expanding upon its family plan by giving each line un-shared data. Actually, the carrier is giving each line a massive amount of un-shared data.

T-Mobile will give each line 10GB of data on its 4G LTE network; therefore, a family plan with four lines will cost only $120 per month. And the carrier’s new Mobile Without Borders expansion is included for each line as well.
