T-Mobile has built quite a reputation for always trying to shake up the wireless industry, particularly with its efforts to steal away current subscribers from its rivals (most especially industry leaders Verizon Wireless and AT&T). Because the so-called Uncarrier is fairly good at this sort of tactics, it is no wonder that Verizon has been spurred into action. Recently, the Big Red is offering a couple of new deals that should counter two existing special offers from T-Mobile.
Some may remember that back in January early this year, T-Mobile had launched a trio of new promotional deals. One of those deals was a buy one get one offer that promises a free iPhone 8 unit for those who buy a new iPhone X (or any iPhone model from the last two years). Unlike Verizon’s new offer though, T-Mobile’s deal required customers to trade in a qualified Apple, Samsung, or LG smartphone.
Aside from the new iPhone deal, Verizon Wireless is also continuing to offer its unlimited data deal for customers who are more than 55 years old and are based in the state of Florida. The national carrier debuted this special offer last February, allowing customers to grab a single line of service that already comes with unlimited gigabytes of data, voice call minutes, and text messaging for $60 per month, or avail of a couple of lines for a price of $80.
For some context, the standard pricing at Verizon is $75 for one line, and $130 for two lines for younger users. Aside from the unlimited data, talk and text, the Florida deal also gives unlimited Wi-Fi hotspot, roaming in Canada and Mexico, and access to the Verizon Up rewards program (which was launched in August of last year). Verizon’s Florida unlimited offer is likely a response to the Unlimited 55+ plan that T-Mobile had introduced around ten months ago. T-Mobile’s deal though is made available countrywide, while the Big Red’s is limited to the Sunshine State. Also, it bears noting that last month, Sprint has unveiled its own Unlimited 55+ deal that targets seniors, too.
