BELLEVUE, Wash. -- T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) again set a new bar for Americans looking for better value in wireless. The Un-carrier announced a new option for Simple Starter customers to quadruple their data to a full 2 GB of LTE data, for just $5 per month.

Back in May, the Un-carrier made waves with the Simple Starter plan, an entry-level solution with unlimited talk and text, and 500 MB of LTE data for just $40. Starting Sept. 3, these customers can get a whopping 2 GB of LTE data for only $5 extra per month – and still no annual service contract and no domestic overages.

By comparison, other entry-level plans come with data overages that penalize customers for using more data.

“People who use loads of data use T-Mobile,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “And it’s no wonder. The old guard telecoms punish people for using more data on their networks with crazy overage charges and fees. Get Verizon’s $50 plan and use just one gig more data, and the price jumps to $65. It’s crazy. At T-Mobile, we designed our network data-strong so our customers could use the hell out of it. And that’s just what they’re doing.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
