In its most recent Uncarrier move, T-Mobile decided to get rid of all of its existing wireless plans and instead, offer just one unlimited plan option for new subscribers. But apparently, a lot of people reacted strongly to the major US wireless carrier’s decision, and they took to the T-Mobile Reddit thread to air their grievances. It seems that what really riled up these customers is that they now have to pay up for the new single option if they want to avail of a cheaper, limited plan.
Once again, T-Mobile shook up the wireless industry with its latest announcements during its most recent Uncarrier event held in Los Angeles, California a few days ago. Apart from doubling the data on its Simple Choice plans and launching a new Family Match feature, the third biggest wireless carrier in America also took the opportunity to introduce Binge On, a service that basically allows subscribers to stream video content without affecting their data allotment.
Sprint introduced a new $20 a month plan yesterday, highlighting it as an unlimited plan, but in reality, mobile users who avail of the plan will see their speeds slowed down to 2G speeds for the remainder of their billing cycle after they go over 1 gigabyte of high speed data usage. As many may have expected, some backlash ensued over the wireless carrier’s misleading marketing. Various publications, websites, and blogs have called out Sprint for the move, not only criticizing its new plan as an example of false advertising, but even going as far as warning mobile users not to fall for the wireless carrier’s newest seemingly sweet offer.
Two weeks after T-Mobile's Never Settle trial was launched, it is still humming along nicely. But it appears that the carrier's #NeverSettleForVerizon promotional hashtag, which T-Mobile paid for, is not doing so well. As a matter of fact, there are reports that T-Mobile is completely withdrawing the use of the hashtag.
