T-Mobile is offering a new family plan deal for the next two months, one that CEO John Legere thinks will blow AT&T’s own family plan “completely out of the water.”

Starting Wednesday, T-Mobile customers can sign up for a $100 per month four-person family plan that includes 10GB of 4G LTE data (2.5GB each), which is more than twice the data that was previously offered.

Both Verizon and AT&T offer similar plans for $160. Legere noted this in a blog post that published today, and unsurprisingly took issue with AT&T.

“It infuriates me that they’re selling this to hardworking families who could use that money for more important things,” Legere wrote. “And they have the nerve to call it ‘Best-Ever Pricing.’ I just couldn’t stand by without speaking up and calling them on their BS.”

Legere also shared this table to prove his point:


This is the latest in a series of recent offerings from Bellevue-based T-Mobile, which could reportedly be acquired by Sprint in the near future. The company last month launched a new program that gives customers unlimited music streaming without data limits. T-Mobile also in June announced its Test Drive program, which allows people to borrow an iPhone 5S that uses T-Mobile’s network for a week in order to give the company’s service a test without switching from their existing carrier.

    This is great, except I live in Bellevue and work in Seattle and have had T-Mobile for years and recently people get a BUSY signal when calling me. The network is overloaded and calls get dropped, get a busy signal, or just dead air. Gives the #uncarrier new meaning. T-Mobile has replaced my phone and SIM and have just let me out of my contract because they can not resolve the network issues that I’ve had since late April. I can’t be the only one.

    I live in the suburban Philadelphia area and have the very same issues! TMO says I have robust LTE coverage in the areas where I live and work. Get super crappy voice quality, very slow data and lots of dropped calls. Did all of the standard problem solving with TMO, viz, new SIM card, remove otter box cover, new iphone and a TMO cell fi booster. After all of that…still super crappy coverage. Download speeds as low as 0.4 but never higher that 5. This is with the cell if booster. All of this since mid to late April/early May. It’s not the phone or the user – it’s the network!

    That’s great, but being able to make a phone call would be nice. My daughter is in Philadelphia for the summer and we can’t even talk. Texting works fine. Video, not at all. So thanks, but I’d like to make a phone call first.
