T-Mobile Announces Business Services Suite

U.S. telecom giant T-Mobile announced a new conception today. The new pitch, which consists of a customized suite of various business services related to mobile phones and carrier plans. The suite, which is an upgrade to T-Mobile’s ‘Uncarrier’, is claimed by T-Mobile to offer a mobile plan that is allegedly 42% less costly than similar business suites offered by T-Mobile’s main competitors Verizon and AT&T.
T-Mobile has partnered with internet domain seller GoDaddy and telecom and software giant Microsoft in their new product. The plan provides various packages of lines: 10 for US$160, 100 for US$1,500 and 1000 for US$15,000. GoDaddy’s role in the collaboration consists of the availability of a free dot com domain and website, which, though usually offered at reasonable rates by GoDaddy, consumes a few bucks every month otherwise. Microsoft has entered the partnership with the offer of a custom dot com email account for users of the T-Mobile suite.
Earlier versions of Uncarrier included the popular feature Data Stash, which allowed postpaid customers to carry over their remaining data for later use. The new upgrade also extended this service to prepaid customers of T-Mobile, a move that is likely to prove extremely popular. Other popular features that made Uncarrier popular were limitless music downloads from a few select streaming services and free international communications, excluding calls.
The Uncarrier plan is part of T-Mobile’s marketing plant to remove the telecom system in the U.S., in which operators often overcharge users or restrict network usage in other ways. It is expected that Uncarrier will help T-Mobile make up ground on Verizon and AT&T, which have left T-Mobile far behind in recent times.
T-Mobile’s executives brushed off criticism and skepticism concerning the sustainability of Uncarrier, including from their own parent company, as nonsense.
