T-Mobile new flexible plans offer cheap service to small business owners.  (Source: Ask Aaron Lee)
T-Mobile and Sprint continue to offer better pricing than the bigger carriers

While a sale to AT&T Inc. (T) may result in serious changes to its pricing, for now Deutsche Telekom AG's (ETR:DTE) T-Mobile USA continues to distinguish itself as one of America's most affordable carriers.  Last month T-Mobile revealed that it would not charge for data plan overages, would merely throttle connections past a certain usage threshold.  To sweeten the deal, the company also unveiled some family plan pricing that was, in many cases, far cheaper that AT&T or Verizon Wireless (VZ), the nation's current largest carrier.

T-Mobile has now unveiled new pricing tiers geared at providing affordable service to small-to-midsize businesses (SMBs).

The first tier is a priced at $24.99 USD/month/line and gives unlimited text, 1,000 minutes/month/line.  The second tier is $34.99 USD/month/line and add 5 GB data/line to the mix.  The third tier is priced at $44.99 USD/month/line and offers unlimited voice to the mix.  The previously announced top tier offers unlimited text, voice, and (full speed) data for $69.99/month/line.

Very small business can also consider pooling plans, which come in 11 different tiers.  The plans give 1,000 minutes for $59.99/month, which can be split between two lines.  Additional lines cost $9.99 a piece, with the maximum number allowed varying by tiers.

The plans also offer a T-Mobile Global for Business $9.99/month/line option, which reduces roaming fees when travelling internationally, by tapping into T-Mobile's sister networks.

Matt Millen, vice president of SMB sales at T-Mobile USA, brags about the company's flexible business offerings, stating, "When small-business owners and their employees choose T-Mobile, they’ll enjoy predictable monthly costs, award-winning service and flexible wireless options designed specifically for their unique needs."

In today's turbulent economic atmosphere, T-Mobile, like its rival Sprint Nextel Corp. (S), is seemingly offering customers -- both individuals and businesses -- more bang for their buck than the top carriers AT&T and Verizon.  Of course, many customers will still pick AT&T and Verizon, as both Sprint and T-Mobile have deficient coverage in some regions.
