T-Mobile has altered its plans to phase out corporate discount programs that reduce the price of their monthly service plan. Though T-Mobile announced last week that it would end the program across the board, which would cause customers prices to go up, T-Mobile has backtracked and decided to let current customers keep their discounts.
Chief Marketing Officer Mike Sievert announced the news late last night via Twitter, saying, "Good news. Tomorrow we will announce that current corp customer employees can keep their discounts. New plan will apply to new customers."
Only new customers will be kept from using corporate discounts. T-Mobile subscribers currently using p that can be $10 to $20 per line can keep their existing rate plans and savings. Though T-Mobile said the cheaper rates were initially done to attract large business accounts, Sievert said that the company listened to customer response and decided to stop offering corporate discounts to new customers.source: T-Mobile, via: Recode
