This is a bring-your-own-device (BYOD)-only plan and according to alleged internal documents, the plan is meant for devices like “Hotspots, connected laptops, or a Chromebook.”
Both consumers and business accounts can sign up for the deal and it’s available for both accounts that are taxes excluded, such as Essentials, and taxes included, such as Magenta.
If you move to T-Mobile‘s new plan from another hotspot plan, you may lose benefits associated with that line. The plan is not price-locked, so T-Mobile is free to increase the price in the future.
For now, this sounds like an affordable plan for those who need another line but don’t need a lot of data or a voice line.
