    T-Mobile's latest salvo in the ongoing price war among US wireless carriers has cut the price of its unlimited shared data plan to $100 a month, a 29 percent reduction.

    Beginning Wednesday, T-Mobile will offer unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data for two lines on its new Simple Choice plan for $100 a month, T-Mobile announced on its website Monday. Customers can tack on up to eight additional lines for $40 for each line.

    "People are saying loud and clear that they hate the confusion and complexity of the carriers' shared data plans, and they should," John Legere, chief executive officer of T-Mobile, said in the statement. "They threaten you with punishing overage penalties unless you police your own family's data usage or up your data bucket and spend more every month."

    T-Mobile also announced it is resurrecting a promotion that offered a family of four 10GB of 4G LTE data for $100. Like the previous promotion, which T-Mobile pulled in October, customers will get 2.5GB per line of data until 2016, when the plan switches to 1GB per line.

    Part of a cut-throat effort to win new customers and retain existing ones, T-Mobile has been the beneficiary of aggressive moves over the past year and a half. Its Uncarrier campaign and Legere's brash attitude has succeeded in winning over consumers and driving its turnaround and helping add 2.3 million new customers in the last quarter.

    But the competition isn't sitting back. Sprint, the nation's third-largest wireless carrier, launched the most recent battle in the price wars in October by introducing a new low-end family data plan aimed at undercutting the top carriers AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Those carriers responded with promotions boosting the amount of data they offered on existing shared plans.

    T-Mobile's shares fell by $2.35 to $25.85, an 8.3 percent decline, after announcing Monday that it would launch a mandatory convertible offering in hopes of raising money for general corporate purposes.

    2.5GB per line isn't unlimited - and the 1GB per line it switches to in 2016 is pathetic.

    We get so screwed in the USA compared to foreign cell rates / features.

    I am seriously considering TMobile or their in house MVNO MetroPCS. I'm on a Sprint MVNO and Sprint's data coverage isn't good enough to qualify as pathetic.

    On the other hand, $180 for four lines doesn't exactly seem like a bargain...

    Thanks for the info.

    I pay less than $200 for 5 unlimited data lines... because my plan has been grandfathered in since about 2006

    I combined sprint plans with my sister recently. Got 5 people on an unlimited talk and text plan with 30gb of data for 1 year and 20gb thereafter. A couple people barely use data so it's more than enough.

    Total is $203 after all taxes and fees. FYI, the city of Chicago alone charges $19.50 just for its 911 center fees!!!! LOL! That's the cost of living in a democratic run big city for ya. I'm not sure if it's the same everywhere but the fees, taxes, and surcharges are killer.

    Just saw an ad tonite for Verizon. They are offering to cut your bill from a competitor in half.
    Might have to look into this.

    Pfff. If you've fucked more than 5-6 people then you have probably been exposed to HPV. Aint that why they tell adults not to bother getting the vaccine?
