Deutsche Telekom is revising its tariffs after the ban on the StreamOn zero-rating option. The new tariffs should offer more data volume and advantages for families, said Telekom manager Torsten Brodt the editorial network Germany.
According to this, the new Telekom tariffs should primarily be profitable for people who use their tariff together with family members. SIM cards can be booked with the main contract for a surcharge – the more you book, the cheaper the offer per capita, writes the editorial network Germany. The additional SIM cards should not only be shared with family members, but also with more distant relatives or neighbors.
30 euros for two additional people
According to RND, the first additional card for the new Telekom tariffs costs 20 euros in all tariff options, the third and more cost 10 euros. The report does not yet reveal whether there is an upper limit for people per tariff option. So far, there are only key data on the tariffs themselves, the full announcement by Telekom is still pending.
The RND report reveals that the cheapest new tariff option will be called Magenta Mobil XS. Here, a person pays 35 euros a month for 5 GB of mobile 5G data volume as well as telephony and SMS flat rates. With MagentaMobil L, on the other hand, you pay 60 euros for 40 GB. There are said to be two further stages in between, the conditions of which are not specified in the RND report. Finally, with MagentaMobil XL, there should be a tariff with unlimited data volume for 85 euros per month.
Tariffs without zero rating from July
Deutsche Telekom wants to offer the new tariffs from July, and existing customers should be automatically switched to the new conditions. With its revised tariffs, Telekom is reacting to the ban on its zero-rating option StreamOn, which was previously part of the tariffs. With the so-called zero rating, mobile phone providers do not count the data traffic of certain services against the volume included in the tariff.
According to the Federal Network Agency, this violates net neutrality. The two providers of such options in Germany, Telekom and Vodafone, must therefore change their tariffs on July 1st. “We are ending the unequal treatment of data traffic associated with the zero rating options,” said BNetzA President Klaus Müller in April. “We expect that the providers will now offer tariffs with higher data volumes or cheaper mobile flat rate tariffs. Consumers will benefit from this.”
