T-Mobile Will Offer Free Unlimited Talk, Text, & 5G Data to First Responders

People looking at smartphonesYesterday during T-Mobile’s presentation about the New T-Mobile after it merges with Sprint, T-Mobile announced they will offer free talk, text, and 5G data to first responders. T-Mobile says they will take on AT&T’s First Net service that caters to first responders. According to T-Mobile, AT&T is overcharging first responders with their First Net first responders service.

“When T-Mobile merges with Sprint, the New T-Mobile will launch a 10-year commitment— providing unlimited talk, text, and smartphone data for U.S. state and local public and non-profit law enforcement, fire, and EMS agencies.”

T-Mobile estimates that this could save first responders billions across the country as they will no longer have to pay for wireless phone calls, texts, or data. T-Mobile promised that they will give first responders the highest priority on their network.

T-Mobile also announced that they will offer free home internet to low income families and a new $15 a month wireless phone plan.

This plan would offer free home internet to one-third of households with children in the United States. This service will offer 100 GB of data per year, and a free tablet or laptop. Once you are accepted into the program T-Mobile will give the family free internet for 5 years.

T-Mobile’s $15 a month phone plan will be called T-Mobile Connect. This plan will offer unlimited text and phone calls. You will also get 2GB of data that will be increased by 500MB every month for 5 years.

T-Mobile says once the merger with Sprint is complete they will move aggressively to make these plans a reality.
