In a move that’s a boon for consumers everywhere, T-Mobile has made public their plans to implement a pro-rated ETF for new customers. Under the new plan, T-Mobile subscribers with less than 6 months on their contract will only be subjected to a $100 dollar fee, which is half of the usual $200 charge. Anyone with less than 3 months left will pay $50, and consumers hoping to jump ship during their last month of contractual obligation might be able to squeeze out for less than $50. We’re not entirely clear if this applies to current subscribers, or to new converts only, but it’s great news nonetheless for anyone feeling a bit constrained by their ETF.
