With this in mind, T-Mobile is rolling out a new low-priced 5G plan for smartphones that will surely get your attention due to its price.

Originally, the intention had been to launch T-Mobile Connect after the T-Mobile and Sprint merger closed.

T-Mobile will launch its budget Connect plan on Wednesday, March 25th. Notably, the plan will be available nationwide post its merger completion with Sprint Corporation S. The affordable data plan is equipped with numerous benefits, like a $15/month and $25/month plan, which include unlimited talk and text services with 2GB and 5GB of data, respectively.

With a promise of delivering better services at lower prices, T-Mobile US, Inc. Like the T-Mobile Connect plan, it'll include unlimited talk and text, plus 2GB of high-speed smartphone data.

Finally, MetroSmart Hotspot devices will be half off and the $35 per month data plan will include 20GB for the next 60 days.

T-Mobile Connect was announced in November of 2019 as part of 5G for Good – the first planned Un-carrier moves for the proposed New T-Mobile – but in response to customer needs in these trying times, the Un-carrier is launching it this week. For those that need more data, however, the company's Magenta plan will get you "unlimited" 5G data for $70 month with taxes and fees included.

"Because communications infrastructure, like wireless networks, are classified as 'essential services, ' network engineers from T-Mobile and across the industry are out there day in and day out working to ensure critical communications services are there for our customers", wrote Ray.

Another feature of T-Mobile Connect is the Annual Data Upgrade.

The economic slowdown is the reason for the early launch of the new T-Mobile Connect plan, the company says. Which puts it at half the price of its current cheapest plan.

Metro by T-Mobile is also launching a 2GB, $15 plan on Wednesday, but that one is a less compelling because it will reset to $30 after two months. "So everyone can stay connected". Which is the most affordable plan that Metro by T-Mobile now offers. Similar to T-Mobile Connect. YouTube Premium is an $11.99-a-month service that includes ad-free videos and the ability to play videos in the background, among other perks.

In addition, Metro by T-Mobile will adjust its plans to cut the monthly rate on its 2GB plan to $15.
