The official launch announcement of both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is only a few days past, and already we’re hearing about a huge promise from one of the nation’s largest cell carriers. According to a T-Mobile exec, those planning on picking up one of Apple’s newest smartphone will be able to take advantage of the best cell coverage ever seen in any T-Mobile iPhone.
This is because the T-Mobile iPhone 6s and 6s Plus operate on a low-frequency 4G LTE signals which will allow for much better coverage. The announcement comes with a Lifetime Coverage Guarantee that provides the best coverage for those sporting one of the new iPhones.
Today, September 13th marks the first day consumers can preorder the new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. The installment prices are very modest when comparing the 6s Plus and T-Mobile’s iPhone 6s price with other US carriers that includes both on an 18 month installment plan. The official release date is September 25th and will be the first day consumers can pick their new iPhone up either through a carrier or directly through Apple.
Both with zero dollars down, and for a period of 18 months the price of the 6s works out to be $20/month while the 6s is only $24/month for the same 18 month term. After the 18 months is up, you can chose to upgrade to a newer iPhone and pay nothing, or end the installment by paying an additional $164, but the phone will be yours.
T-Mobile has increased their market share here in the US with aggressive marketing and huge promotions. Their latest that buys out your contract has enticed many users of other carriers such as Verizon. Over the course of the past 6 or so months, Verizon has lost a considerable market share with both T-Mobile and Sprint moving forward.
Currently, there are just under 300 million US customers on the T-Mobile network with analysts forecasting this number to grow considerably over the next few years.
