Home Internet customers will also be able to keep their low $50 monthly fee unchanged forever while scoring new YouTube TV discounts (under certain conditions) and up to $500 to cover early termination fees at other ISPs (Internet Service Providers) when switching to T-Mo. That’s all pretty cool and well, but it definitely doesn’t justify an entire “Un-carrier” event, so here’s hoping other stuff is under wraps and scheduled to go official this Wednesday, May 4. Our original story follows below.
The T-Mo Report claims to have (mostly) spoiled Magenta’s secrets by getting their hands on a number of private internal documents. We’re still more than 48 hours away from T-“huge” Mo’s May 4 Un-carrier event at the time of this writing. As expected, the fast-growing Home Internet service will allegedly be in the spotlight… with only modest improvements unlikely to pique the interest of potential clients. T-Mobile is rumoured to be working on a new gateway device that won’t “require a set-up,” unlike the current 5G router, which is also very simple to get up and running.
Just 48 hours after releasing yet another record-breaking quarterly financial report “fueled” by its thoroughly documented “5G network leadership” and a little over a week on the heels of flaunting the latest achievements of its disruptive Home Internet service, T-Mobile is today teasing a presumably bigger impending announcement.
Much bigger, most likely, based on Magenta’s use of the “Un-carrier” label. Inaugurated all the way back in 2013, the buzzy marketing program has been widely recognized as a major revitalizer for a once-apathetic mobile network operator that managed to surpass both Sprint and AT&T in terms of subscriber figures in the space of just five years or so.
Of course, with Sprint now dead and buried and T-Mo’s sights very much set on eclipsing Verizon as well… sooner or later, it’s pretty hard for the “Un-carrier” to keep the maverick jig going. But that’s precisely what makes us intrigued, perhaps even more intrigued than usual, for the May 4 event scheduled to be livestreamed on the official T-Mobile website starting at 10 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern.
Especially after AT&T’s latest string of ultra-aggressive plans, add-ons, and promotions, as well as Verizon’s successful C-band 5G rollout to “more than 100 million people”, it seems safe to expect some spectacular new “Un-carrier” moves from the nation’s early 5G speed and availability champion. While T-Mo has held plenty of smaller events and unveiled quite a few killer deals and offers in recent months, its previous “Un-carrier” announcements took place all the way back in early April 2021 under the catchy “#5GforAll” slogan.
Following a “Great Free 5G Phone Upgrade” program that hooked up customers with, well, gratis 5G handsets under extremely favorable conditions, as well as the official launch of the T-Mobile Home Internet network that quickly took the entire nation by storm, there’s apparently something in the pipeline that “doesn’t need a set-up.”
Unfortunately, we truly have no idea what T-Mo might be hiding under that decidedly cryptic tagline, which, you guessed it, makes us even more intrigued for May 4. By the way, knowing Magenta, there’s a very slim chance that date was chosen at random, and a very good chance (we think) of seeing something unveiled (among others) with some sort of a Star Wars connection. May the fourth be with every T-Mobile subscriber excited about this event while you count the days and hours left until next Wednesday morning!
