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.
