T-Mobile offers free unlimited LTE data upgrade for a full year if you bring a friend from a rival carrier
For over a year and a half T-Mobile worked really hard to prove that it’s taking really good care of its customers. Last Monday, however, Sprint announced that it’s increasing data allotments for families. Sprint’s new promotion provides customers with over twice as much data as what T-Mobile offers for the same price. That must have been painful, ouch! What did T-Mobile do? Announces a new promotion that offers free unlimited LTE data upgrade for a full year if you bring a friend from a rival carrier.
T-Mobile announces new referral program
Rules are pretty simple, as always when it comes to T-Mobile’s new UnCarrier announcement. In order to score a whole year of unlimited LTE data, T-Mobile Simple Choice customers just need to convince a friend to say “bye bye” to Sprint, AT&T or Verizon and jump on T-Mobile. The new member of the Magenta network also gets one year of unlimited LTE data at no additional cost, obviously. Those subscribers who are already eligible for unlimited LTE data will receive a $10 credit each month for twelve months. To claim unlimited access to LTE data you just have to fill out a referral form at T-Mobile’s referral webpage where you enter your phone number and the number of your friend.
T-Mobile’s response to Sprint’s new offer came quickly and as always was aggressive and tore other carriers’ politics to shreds. The Magenta network also didn’t miss on the opportunity to emphasize that they are doing all in their power not to be perceived as part of the U.S. wireless industry, which according to T-Mobile is exploiting its customers. T-Mobile President and CEO John Legere basically accused Sprint, AT&T and Verizon of being arrogant and indifferent. T-Mobile’s Chief Marketing Officer Mike Sievert didn’t mince words either when he commented on Sprint favoring new customers over existing ones.
T-Mobile’s approach to its competition may not be the most diplomatic and may earn the company quite a few enemies, but one thing we have to admit – all moves that network has made so far seem to be in the best interest of its customers. Unlimited LTE data for a full year certainly feels like it. Are you planning to take advantage of this deal?
