In a bid to release business customers from what T-Mobile calls the “carrier death grip” of its competition, the company has announced three new products – 'Home Office', 'Collaborate', and 'Enterprise Unlimited' plans – which will fall within a new offering called ‘WFX’ (work from anywhere).
“Today, we’re unveiling a set of important moves the 'uncarrier' is making to help businesses and organisations,” T-Mobile’s CEO Mike Sievert explained at the launch. “And frankly, today’s news could not be more timely, or more urgent. Because it’s all about equipping businesses to succeed in a time of seismic shifts in the way we all work.”
And according to Sievert, last year’s merger with Sprint has provided T-Mobile 5G with the scale and “unmatched network assets” to develop a new suite of products for business and organisations.
“In 2020 we saw a decade of change packed into a single year,” Sievert said. “And here’s the thing: the world is not going back. In a post-pandemic world, 87% of US business leaders expect to see at least some of their employees working from home for three or more days a week.
“Today we’re taking the next step, unveiling a comprehensive set of T-Mobile for Business solution, unlocked by our 5G network, to solve real problems, and empower business to do business whenever, and wherever they need to, and we’re calling it T-Mobile WFX, and it includes three key solutions to help businesses work from anywhere,” Sievert announced.
WFX: three new products for remote workers
The three products being launched by T-Mobile for Business, as part of its WFX package, are: ‘Enterprise Unlimited’ plans, a set of business mobile tariffs to offer 5G with “unprecedented value”; ‘Home Office Internet’, providing a dedicated connection for business use; and ‘Collaborate’, which is a suite of mobile-first, cloud-based apps.
“We’re launching new plans with unlimited 4G and 5G data, at the same price of the carriers’ limited, pooled and shared plans, that have a fraction of the 5G access,” Sievert bragged. “And it’s truly unlimited, for the price the other guys’ charge for limited data you have to share.”
T-Mobile Home Office Internet will cover more than 60 million households at launch, close to half of all homes in America, with plans to cover more than 90 million households by 2025. And T-Mobile’s new Collaborate service will be available as part of ‘Enterprise Unlimited’, or on a standalone basis.
“With Collaborate, your teams can call, message, and conference across their preferred devices for effortless collaboration, just as if they were at the office,” Sievert explained. “But now, they can do it from everywhere, with in-office like features , that are important for businesses and employees , such as call transfers, one-touch conferencing, full integration with all the productivity suites, and a lot more.”
Pricing for T-Mobile Home Office Internet starts at $90 per line per month, and Enterprise Unlimited with T-Mobile Collaborate together start at $37 per line, per month; with T-Mobile available as a standalone product from $12 per month.
