T-Mobile promotes 2G for IoT with deal for AT&T users
Since AT&T is about to do away with 2G forever at the end of the year and T-Mobile, amazingly enough, won’t be until 2021, the Un-carrier thought of maybe roping in a few extra subscribers with new Internet of Things technology with its old, old wireless standard.
It is offering AT&T customers with IoT data services free SIMs as needed to switch their devices to T-Mobile’s “new spectrum-efficient” GSM network and a complimentary 50MB of data for each device per month until January. After that, a specialized T-Mobile One plan would kick in, though we don’t know the cost as of yet. We do know that if you have T-Mobile service on your smartphone, there’s a small discount for a plan add-on covering data-enabled tablets and wearables.
