Are you ready for Beast Mobile?

Marshawn Lynch (yes, BeastMode himself) is jumping into the MVNO market with Beast Mobile starting at $24/month with unlimited talk/text, and 1GB of data.

Confirmed: T-Mobile unlimited threshold raised to 50GB starting 20 September

After what I would call a fumble last week by T-Mobile with their “Free Netflix” deal not being as sweet as implied, T-Mobile rebounds this week with a sweet move that benefits heavy data users.  T-Mobile has always been the most lenient with their “unlimited” plans in the past and announced they will continue to be that way in the future. 

Free Netflix deal with T-Mobile isn’t quite a great deal after all

On 6 September, T-Mobile announced they would be offering free Netflix to customers with T-Mobile One unlimited plans that would go live on 12 September.  On the surface this looks like an amazing deal worth about $120/year for those currently paying $9.99/month for the basic Netflix plan.  But if you’re on a $100/2 line One unlimited plan, this deal isn’t for you.
