T-Mobile Doubles Your Data When You Add a Tablet

Last year, T-Mobile’s (NYSE: TMUS) free-data-for-life program changed the way American’s think about connected tablets by serving up 200 MB of free LTE data per month for the life of their T-Mobile tablet. Now, the Un-carrier’s making it easier and more affordable than ever for customers to experience life with a connected tablet−with a new offer to double your data when you add a tablet to your Simple Choice smartphone plan on the fastest LTE network in the nation.

Starting September 3rd, adding a tablet – any tablet – to a postpaid Simple Choice phone plan costs just $10 per month. And right on top of that, the Un-carrier will match your smartphone’s LTE data plan – up to 5 GB a month – reserved for use on your tablet. For example, a customer with a Simple Choice smartphone plan with 5 GB of LTE data can add a tablet with another 5 GB of data set aside for use on that tablet, for just $10 per month. That’s a total of up to 10 GB of LTE data. And that’s all on top of the 200 MB of free LTE data every single month for the life of your tablet.

“The old school carriers make you pay for the privilege of connecting your tablet to their network−just to tap into the same limited pool of data you already bought for your smartphone,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “With the Un-carrier, you can now get double the data on a network designed for data for one simple price. It couldn’t be simpler or more straightforward.”

Today at AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, you can add a tablet to your account for a monthly $10 access fee that gets you exactly zero additional data. That $10 at the old guard carriers gives you nothing more than ‘access’ to your existing shared data pool. And, what’s worse anyone on the account can use all your data – leaving you stranded and racking up more fees. Who wants to run out of data on their tablet and be charged overages all because Dad streamed Netflix for 3 hours on his smartphone?

At T-Mobile, if you have 1 GB of LTE data on your Simple Choice smartphone plan, you can get up to 1 GB of LTE data on your tablet. 3 GB on your phone? Get 3 GB on your tablet. 5 GB? Get 5 GB on your tablet – for just $80 per month. Pay nearly the same amount at Verizon, AT&T or Sprint and get less than half the value – or worse.

Example Simple Choice Plan with 5 GB LTE data

1 Smartphone + 1 Tablet   T-Mobile   Verizon   AT&T   Sprint
Shared Data Bucket NA $40 $40 $40
Smartphone Access $70 $30 $25 $25
Tablet Access   $10   $10   $10   $10
Total Monthly Cost $80 $80 $75 $75
Total LTE Data 10.2GB 1GB 2GB 4GB
 

“Our tablets are the most data-hungry devices we have, and yet most people live in fear of using their tablet outside of the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot because of those crazy overage fees the big telecoms hold over their customers’ heads,” said Mike Sievert, chief marketing officer for T-Mobile. “T-Mobile customers live in a different reality. T-Mobile customers can use their tablets worry free – on a network designed data strong – without the fear of bill shock or those ridiculous overage fees.”

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
