T-Mobile held a long-awaited event earlier today, and we finally saw an official partnership between the Magenta carrier and Apple come to fruition with the T-Mobile iPhone 5. It’s the first iPhone to date that supports all the carrier’s bandwidths for HSPA+ and 4G LTE. As well as the new network compatibility, was the pricing: $99 up front plus $20 per month on top the monthly plan of $50/$60 per month. If that wasn’t enough, T-Mobile is the first US carrier to offer HD Voice calls with the 6th generation iPhone.
It’s the cheapest initial cost for the iPhone 5 yet, and could tempt a few users to switch to the US’ number 4 carrier. If that wasn’t enough, early speed tests indicated that T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network was almost twice as fast as Verizon’s.
With seemingly so many benefits to switching, are any of you planning to move across? Join in our poll and tell us your plans.
