Business accounts with 6 or more lines receive special pricing
Building on its crusade as the "UNcarrier", T-Mobile is expanding its plan restructuring to its small and medium business offerings as well. There are now just two basic tiers for business — Simple Choice Classic and Simple Choice for Business. The former is a more typical plan, where each employee will receive a subsidized device and the business will be under a service contract, with prices ranging from $40 per line for unlimited talk, text and 500MB of data up to $70 for unlimited data (with 2.5GB of tethering).
The Simple Choice for Business plans are of the newer no-contract style, and range from just $20 per line for 500MB of data up to $50 for unlimited data. Each line will then have access to T-Mobile's financing deals for purchasing devices, with a down payment for each device and monthly installments to pay it off. For small businesses (less than 6 people), T-Mobile is simply offering plans of the same structure as its family plans, with charges starting at $50 for the first line, down to $10 for the 3rd, 4th and 5th lines on the account.
T-Mobile hasn't historically had a strong foothold in the business world, and is looking to appeal to the accounting department with their lower overall prices and plan choices. The UNcarrier will certainly take any customer gains it can get at this point, business or otherwise.
