Tello is running a holiday promotion until December 22. New customers that purchase Tello’s plan with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 4GB of data each month can get the first three months of service for only $10 per month. After the three-month promotional period, the plan will go back to Tello’s usual price of $19 per month.
Even without the promotion, Tello’s rates are awfully good. However, it’s an odd moment to make the switch to Tello. At the moment, the carrier operates over Sprint’s network. Thanks to the merger between T-Mobile and Sprint, Tello will soon transition to operating over T-Mobile’s network. While the network migration will lead to substantially better coverage for Tello subscribers, the migration may be a bit of a hassle for subscribers transitioning between networks.
People who are interested in Tello and budget-sensitive may want to go ahead and switch to the carrier while the promotion is running. Less budget-sensitive consumers may want to prioritize convenience and wait until Tello has started migrating to T-Mobile’s network before making a switch.
