It’s a good time to be a family of four. T-Mobile has just announced the latest in a series of promotions that’ll get you and three others unlimited data for just $150. Heralding this offer as the “best-ever pricing for families,” the price is pretty sweet for boundless LTE for your smartphones. And better still, families and small businesses alike can add up to eight additional lines for $30 each. So if you’re constantly finding yourself on the losing end of your data plan, it may be time to consider a switch.

If unlimited data seems like too much data, you could also consider getting four lines of 10 GB per line (remember, T-Mobile doesn’t share, so every one of those 10 GBs are yours), for $120 per month. This translates to just $30 a month, which certainly sounds like a deal. And if you don’t have a large family, you can opt for two lines of 10 GB each for $100. Sure, at $50 per line, it’s a bit steeper, so you might as well grab a couple friends and make an ad-hoc family.

“Over the past year alone, we’ve more than doubled the reach of our LTE coverage, so more people than ever can now ride America’s fastest 4G LTE network,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile in a statement. “Last year, I told you we’d massively expand our LTE coverage, and we did. I promised we’d compete nearly everywhere with Verizon’s LTE network, and win. And that’s exactly what real-time, crowd-sourced studies are now confirming.”

The Un-carrier, which claims to be “America’s fastest 4G LTE network,” boasts that a record number of customers have been switching over for both the low prices and the additional benefits of being part of the T-Mobile family. And while one of their most frequently touted new programs, Binge-On, has received some negative attention in recent weeks, with prices like these, T-Mobile seems confident in its ability to attract new business.

T-Mobile made a $325 suitcase that you may actually want to buy

T-Mobile has been pushing its customers to travel more with its Coverage Beyond initiative, and now the company is offering something completely new for travelers: the Un-carrier On smart suitcase. Smart suitcases have been around for a while, giving owners access to things like USB charging ports while on the go. However, T-Mobile's limited-edition carry-on might just be one of the best ever made.

The Un-carrier On offers a plethora of features perfect for frequent fliers, such as wireless smartphone charging, USB-C charging ports for phones and more, a removable rechargeable 10,000mAh power bank, and a flat top that serves as a portable workstation for laptops. The Un-carrier On also is a pretty solid suitcase — sporting Transportation Security Administration-approved combination locks, smart tags for easy luggage tracking, and 360-degree spinning wheels.

It’s late 2022, and Verizon and AT&T still can’t beat T-Mobile’s 5G network

It’s been 10 months since Verizon and AT&T flipped the switch on their new C-band 5G spectrum, but it appears both carriers still have their work cut out for them if they want to catch up to T-Mobile.

Market analyses and independent tests have agreed for years that T-Mobile is the fastest and most reliable 5G carrier in the U.S. That’s not surprising as it had a massive advantage by holding licenses for the crucial midrange spectrum that provides the best balance between range and speed. While Verizon’s early high-frequency mmWave rollouts allowed it to boast raw speeds that were significantly faster, those were confined to about 1% of its subscriber base.

T-Mobile adding a free year of Apple TV+ to its most expensive plans

T-Mobile today announced that it's giving subscribers to its most expensive mobile plan a free subscription to Apple TV+, which normally costs $60 a year. Those who are subscribed to the Magenta Max plan — which costs $85 a month for a single line — will get Apple's streaming service for free. If you've got T-Mobile's Magenta plan, which costs $70 a month for one line, you'll get six months of Apple TV+ for free.

The perk takes effect on August 31, 2022, and it's good for the foreseeable future. (A previous version of this story stated it was just for one year, but that's legacy copy on T-Mobile's website for the old perk that's being supplanted.)
