Mobile’s latest unlimited plan cuts out the extras

T-Mobile Essentials does without the usual add-ons of global data access, unlimited mobile hotspot, and other features, in the name of keeping the price down every month.

The plan, which starts at $60 for a single line, $30 for the second and $15 per line for lines 3-6 with autopay, is geared toward customers who "just want the basics".

T-Mobile Essentials offers the bare necessities - unlimited talk, text and data in the United States - for just $30 per month. And "during times and places with heavy network demand, Essentials customers may notice slower speeds than other customers", as will Essentials customers using more than 50 GB of data per month. Subscribers will get unlimited talk, text, and data in the United States for $30 per line for a family of four with autopay. Each line after that, for a total of up to six lines, costs $15 per month.

T-Mobile's new plan may serve to continue to drag down the carrier's average revenue per user. The plan is similar to pared-back "unlimited" plans that have recently been debuted by Verizon and AT&T: You get mostly-unlimited mobile data, talk, and texts for less than the flagship plan, but lose additional extras like high-speed hotspot data and worldwide roaming.

Oil rises as US sanctions on Iran stir supply worries
Markets also anticipated an announcement from Washington later on Monday on renewed USA sanctions against major oil exporter Iran. But new data released on Monday showed Saudi Arabia's oil production fell in July by 200,000 bpd from the month earlier.

Mobile hotspot is actually included in the plan, but it is limited at 3G speeds.

It's not often that T-Mobile introduces a whole new rate plan, but today that's exactly what the carrier has done. Theyve got Above Unlimited, Unlimited Plus, Beyond Unlimited, Unlimited and More…Unlimited and More Premium?! But things have gotten decidedly more complex since T-Mobile announced that it would offer only a single unlimited plan to its customers. Well have to wait until T-Mobile releases its terms and conditions for the new plan to see exactly which of the T-Mobile perks it will or will not include. If you want to take advantage of the cheap pricing, you'll need to enroll in autopay. The carrier's other plans cost more, but have more features. Oftentimes, the only way to find out what you'd actually be paying in taxes and fees is to start the application process for a new line, which requires proof of residency and is therefore hard to do.

If you just want a basic phone plan for your device that's easy on your pocket then T-Mobile might have something for you. Is T-Mobile still the UnCarrier?
