In June of last year, T-Mobile introduced their Hotspot@Home UMA service, which lets users “seamlessly” (depending who you ask) transfer calls between their cellular network and Wi-Fi. It cost $19.99 per month for a single line. Now it’s $10.
T-mobile just launched “Tmobile@Home” plan, which provides users with a $50 WRTU54G, allowing users to plug in a landline in order to get unlimited local and domestic calling for just $10 a month. T-Mobile will transfer your number to their system, and they’re also offering a $60 VTech wireless phone. The service was initially only offered in Dallas and Seattle, but as of July 2 will be available nationwide.
T-Mobile CEO talks with the Seattle Times about the company’s shift in direction.
