T-Mobile has yet to make deep inroads in the 3G market considering the lateness of their network. However, they are, in this instance, trying to undercut the competition starting with a price cut of $10 on their webConnect data plans. With a smaller 3G footprint, we’ve long discussed T-mobile’s need for a competitive advantage over its larger rivals and undercutting their data connect plans is a great place to start. The webConnect customer can often be a frequently traveling businessman who is looking for reliable and inexpensive service and that’s where T-mobile can step up to the plate in a big way. The $59.99 data plan often catches people off guard, and starting off at the $49.99 price point for T-Mobile employees can be a great way to say, “Hey look, T-mobile is the best value.”
The offer runs from September 30th-January 12th after which the prices will jump back to $39.99/59.99.
