Poll results: Half of respondents bought an LTE-enabled tablet due to T-Mobile’s free data promotion
Last week, I asked you whether or not T-Mobile’s offer of 200MB tablet data free for life had any influence on your recent tablet purchases. Honestly, it’s a fantastic deal – even though 200MB isn’t a lot, it’s more than you can get from literally any other carrier for free. And if you want to add more data, T-Mobile remains the most reasonably-priced. Even better, you don’t need to be an existing customer, and you can get the free monthly data whether you’re on a prepaid or postpaid plan. In other words, there really are no strings attached.
Personally, when I decided to upgrade my 2012 Google Nexus 7 by ASUS to a newer 2013 model, I decided to go with the LTE version, directly as a result of T-Mobile’s offer. Even though I still use my LTE Nexus 7 mainly on WiFi, I’m finding myself thankful for those moments when I can connect to T-Mobile’s network on the go. I don’t have an ounce of buyer’s remorse, even though I ended up paying $70 more for the privilege of being able to connect to LTE.
And apparently, half of the people who responded to my question are in agreement. But what about the rest of you?
32% said that you like to keep your device costs down, so you’ll be sticking with WiFi-only tablets for now. And 18% of you said you don’t have a tablet at all.
