T-Mobile has pulled its Combi, Flext and U-Fix tariffs and introduced a new portfolio of flexible ‘pay monthly’ tariffs.
The new tariffs are backed by upfront commission payments for third-party dealers that enable them to match the value T-Mobile affords customers via its direct channels.
T-Mobile national sales manager for independent partners John Fannon said: “The new tariffs are like a Chinese menu – it’s very easy to choose what you want… The greatest thing is the flexibility.”
The new 18 and 24-month deals are available from February 1.
Customers can select a free ‘booster’ from a range of bolt-ons as part of their contract, and choose further booster options from £5 per month.
Boosters include unlimited texts, unlimited UK fixed line calls, interent access to 1GB of data per month, plus various international calling bundles. They can be chopped and changed each month.
Tariffs range from 100 minutes and 100 texts for £15 per month to 1,200 minutes and 500 texts for £35 a month. Customers will pay £5 more for 18-month tariffs than 24-month deals allowing equivalent monthly airtime.
T-Mobile is also dropping its ‘Solo’ SIM-only brand from March 1 for a range of ‘SIM-only’-branded propositions at new pricepoints. Rolling one-month deals start at £10 per month for 100 minutes and 100 texts, and rise to £25 per month for 900 minutes and 500 texts.
Twelve-month SIM-only deals allow 600 minutes and 500 texts for £15 a month, and rise to 1,200 minutes and 500 texts for £25 per month. All unlimited text bundles have been removed.
SIM-only customers also get to select a free booster, and opt in for further bundles at £5 a go.
Existing Solo plans (affording 300 minutes and unlimited texts for £15 a month, 600 minutes and unlimited texts for £20 a month and 800 minutes and unlimited texts for £25 a month) are available until March 1.
Dealers will get additional commission and deferred commission payments for selling boosters.
