T-Mobile is launching its newest unlimited plan, which might be its
best yet, offering two lines of unlimited data for $60 (including
taxes, fees, etc.). There's just one catch: the new T-Mobile One
Unlimited 55+ plan is only available for customers aged 55 and up.
In a video explaining the plan, T-Mobile CEO John Legere says the new
Unlimited 55+ offering is meant to give seniors a full-fledged
cellphone plan for smartphones and modern devices. T-Mobile's latest
option takes a jab at competitor AT&T's Senior Nation plan, which
costs a similar $29.99 a month per line for customers over 65. But in
comparison, AT&T's plan is almost comically outdated, offering just
200 anytime minutes, 500 night and weekend minutes, and unlimited
calling to other AT&T customers. These are distinctions for a
cellphone plan that I haven't had to consider in over a decade. AT&T's
Senior Nation plan is "only eligible for basic phones and not eligible
on smartphones or tablets."
