Well it looks like it wasn’t a rumor after all. After a recent leak that suggested we may see the pink carrier unveiled a truly unlimited data and voice plan, the carrier has gone ahead and officially delivered.
Earlier today, T-Mobile UK went ahead and launched its Full Monty plan. This plan boasts unlimited data alongside unlimited cross network calls and text messages. The entry-level £36 contract limits calls to 2,000 per month while the unlimited calling starts at £41 per month. The plan is available starting February 1st. Full details in the press release that follows.
T-Mobile launches The Full Monty – the UK’s first plan to offer unlimited calls, texts and data
No fair use restrictions apply to internet, calls or text messages
Plan offers UK customers market leading value for money
Unique to T-Mobile, this plan is a landmark for the mobile industry
Available on all phones in the T-Mobile range – including iPhone, Android and BlackBerry
London, UK: 30 January 2012 – T-Mobile today announces the launch of The Full Monty, a ground-breaking new mobile phone plan that offers consumers the freedom to make unlimited calls, send unlimited texts, and use as much mobile internet as they want – with no fair use restrictions. The first of its kind for the UK, The Full Monty plan offers unbeatable value and is available from 1 February through T-Mobile stores, online shop, telesales and in-direct partners.
Customers signing up to The Full Monty 24 month plan will not only have the reassurance that there are no caps on their calls1, texts and internet, they will also have access to unlimited WiFi2, and can use their mobile internet for whatever they like – including tethering (using a smartphone as an internet connection for a laptop or tablet), streaming and downloading.
The Full Monty plan offers four simple price brackets, each of which offer a great range of free high-end smartphones:
iPhone 4S 16GB (£99 upfront fee)
iPhone 4 8GB (free)
Samsung Galaxy SII (free)
HTC Sensation XE (free)
iPhone 4S 16GB (£29 upfront fee)
BlackBerry 99003 (free)
iPhone 4S 16GB (free)
iPhone 4S 32Gb (free)
iPhone 4S 64GB (£29 upfront fee)
What’s more, further to the ‘big 3G switch-on’ last year, customers signing up to The Full Monty plan will be joining the 28 million T-Mobile and Orange customers who can already benefit from the widest 3G network in the UK, and faster internet and data speeds in more places for no extra cost, thanks to the sharing of 3G signals from both networks.
Ben Fritsch, Head of Propositions, T-Mobile UK , comments: “Over the past two years, we’ve seen a rise in mobile internet use of over 250%, which reflects the consumer trend of being ‘always on’ wherever they are. However, consumers also still want to retain a more personal level of communication by calling or sending a text.
The Full Monty has been designed for customers who want the peace of mind that there are absolutely no limits placed on their allowances, whilst also knowing they’re getting market leading value for money. We believe our Pay Monthly portfolio offers plans to suit anyone’s needs, all at accessible prices – and we’re really proud to be the first to offer a plan like The Full Monty in the UK”.
