Tello Mobile has launched a last-minute holiday deal to entice new customers to make the switch. For a limited time, new customers switching to Tello can get 3-months of wireless service for just $10/month. The discounted plan regularly costs $19/month and includes unlimited talk, text, and data with the first 4GB of data available each month at 4G LTE data speeds. After the data threshold gets reached data speeds slow to about 64Kbps for the rest of the customer's billing cycle. Mobile hotspot is also included with the plan as is unlimited calling to Canada, Mexico, China, and Romania.
Last month it was announced that Tello would begin activating all new subscribers on the T-Mobile network. The transition was supposed to have begun on the week of November 22nd. Unfortunately, that transition has been delayed. Tello tells me that they are still in the advanced stages of testing and bug fixing. A new launch date has not been divulged yet, but I do not expect it to be too much longer. Until then, Tello can still be considered to be a Sprint MVNO. Once the transition takes place, Tello's phone plans will remain in place as they are today. Customers taking advantage of Tello's current holiday deal will get to keep their plan at the end of the promotion but will have to pay the plan's regular rate. They can also switch to any other plan they'd like. Some popular phone plans from the provider include the following options:
- $10/month - 1GB high-speed data
- $14/month - 2GB high-speed data
- $19/month - 4GB high-speed data
- $24/month - 6GB high-speed data
- $29/month - 8GB high-speed data
- $39/month - 25GB high-speed data
All plans include unlimited talk, text, and data with the specified amount of data available at high-speeds before throttling to 2G data speeds after the high-speed allotment gets consumed. Mobile hotspot is included with each and every plan as is unlimited calling to Canada, Mexico, China, and Romania. Taxes and fees cost extra. If you are interested in this 3-month new customer deal from Tello it is scheduled to be available until 12/22/2020.
