T-Mobile is talking a huge 5G game today, announcing that its giving anybody who trades in any old phone a free Samsung Galaxy A32 5G. The old phone needs to remain in working order, but it can be any phone – journalism release even mentions you can trade in a Partner, flip phone, whatever.
The carrier also announced that its upgrading all of its clients (consisting of those previously on Sprint) who are on a limited information plan to a limitless 5G prepare for free.
Additionally, T-Mobile Home Internet via 5G launches today with 30 million houses qualified, making the carrier “among the largest broadband service providers in the whole country by service area” from the first day. The release snarkily includes that “thats already more homes than Verizon hopes to cover by the end of 2023”. Oh, and 10 million of those qualified houses are in rural America. Theres only one Home Internet strategy, at $60 monthly flat, with “expected average speeds of 100 Mbps for the majority of brand-new consumers”.
The “totally free” bit comes after 24 costs credits, so you will require to stick around for 2 years to benefit, and you still have to pay sales tax – however hey, its practically complimentary.
