The pricing breaks down as follows: The first line on T-Mobile Essentials costs $60 per month, while the second costs $30.

T-Mobile has a new all-you-can eat plan that combines unlimited calls, messaging, and data: T-Mobile Essentials. T-Mobile will throttle Essential customers more than its other unlimited data plans, noting that "during times and places with heavy network demand, Essentials customers may notice slower speeds than other customers". For comparison, a two-line T-Mobile ONE plan will cost you $120 per month, while four lines costs $160. Adding the third and fourth line cost $15 each, bringing the total cost for a family of four to $120 per month. That's who T-Mobile Essentials is for. Essentials includes unlimited talk, text, and 2G data when roaming, but only in Canada and Mexico.

The cheaper plan limits video to 480p and hotspot connections are always 3G.
