T-Mobile ends overage fees, company urges competitors to do the same

T-Mobile continues to challenge rivals, this time announcing that the company will no longer hit subscribers with data plan overage fees (NYSE:TMUS)

T-Mobile confirmed today it will no longer charge subscribers a penalty if they go over their data plan limits, and anyone that goes over their data plan will just have speeds throttled.

"Overage fees are flat out wrong," said John Legere, T-Mobile president and CEO in a press statement. "Charging overage fees is a greedy, predatory practice that needs to go. Starting in May for bills arriving in June- regardless of whether you're on Simple Choice, Simple Starter or an older plan, we're abolishing overages for good. Period."

 

T-Mobile also urges phone owners to sign a Change.org petition to pressure AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Sprint into dropping overage charges. Sprint welcomes customers to join its "Framily" plan, while AT&T and Verizon still hit customers with overage charges - which can easily rack up the phone bill even higher - and should be curious to see if they publicly respond.
