TL;DR

  • T-Mobile reportedly announced price hikes on some older plans to employees.
  • An apparent employee claimed that prices for affected plans could increase by $2 to $5 per voice line.
  • The carrier has now made the price change official.

Update: May 22, 2024 (12:16 PM ET): T-Mobile has officially announced it is raising prices on some old plans. According to the carrier, “Beginning June 5, the rate of your voice plan will increase by $5.00/line per month. And the rate of your connected device plan will increase by $2.00/line per month.” In the FAQ section at the bottom of the announcement, the reason for the price increase is attributed to rising costs and inflation.


Original: May 22, 2024 (9:06 AM ET): Recent news stories and online chatter this week suggested that T-Mobile had a potentially unwelcome announcement to make today (May 22). Well, it looks like there is indeed bad news for T-Mobile users.

An apparent T-Mobile employee has revealed on Reddit that the network is raising rates on some old plans by $2 to $5 per voice line. The user also posted a purported screenshot of an internal slide detailing the news, as seen below. The image suggests that the carrier is raising prices due to inflation and other associated cost increases.

This news was corroborated by The Mobile Report, which added that the price hikes affect Simple Choice and ONE plans. It’s unclear whether other plans are affected just yet. It’s believed that the price increase could come into effect from the June 5 billing cycle.

“The majority of our customers are not included. The small fraction of customers who are included will be notified on May 22,” read an excerpt of an internal document posted by the news outlet.
