Press Release

Sep 05, 2019 — BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The best just got better for 55 and better. Today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) announced Essentials Unlimited 55 — the Un-carrier’s best deal ever for Americans aged 55 and older, just $55 plus tax for two lines of unlimited talk, text and high-speed data. And it all launches tomorrow, Friday September 6.

Boomers deserve respect from the wireless industry they helped create, and T-Mobile gives it to them. Meanwhile, Verizon keeps insulting, stereotyping and mistreating them — Big Red actually requires 55+ customers to live in Florida to get a discount… if you can call it that (two lines for $80? OK). And AT&T may be worse, if that’s even possible. AT&T Senior Nation, limited to 65+ customers, costs $29.99 per month per line for talk and text. That’s right. No data. In 2019. Patronize much, AT&T?

“Boomers are the generation that invented wireless, yet the Carriers continue to completely patronize and insult us,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “At T-Mobile, we’ve got the industry’s best unlimited plans for those 55 and up, and we’ll continue making our customers the happiest in wireless. No matter which state they call home.”

Here’s the deal: starting tomorrow, head to any T-Mobile store, call or go online and get the new Essentials Unlimited 55 plan. It’s just $55 per month for two lines with Autopay plus taxes and fees, just $40 for a single line, and includes everything that comes with T-Mobile Essentials: unlimited talk, text and high-speed smartphone data in the U.S., unlimited 3G hotspot, T-Mobile Tuesdays, the best customer care in wireless with a dedicated Team of Experts and free scam protection to fight robocalls — all at the industry’s best price for those over 55. If this is the deal for you, hurry because it’s only available for a limited time.

Or, opt for Magenta Unlimited 55 for $70—taxes and fees included—for two lines per month with AutoPay, and enjoy everything you get with Essentials, plus 3GB high-speed hotspot, free data and texting abroad and 1-hour of free in-flight Wi-Fi.
