T-Mobile Axing Monthly Corporate Discounts

It will stay available for government and military, though
Many of those who have enjoyed T-Mobile's Advantage Monthly Discount program will see it on the chopping block in late April.
, T-Mobile is getting rid of its Advantage Monthly Discount for small and large companies on April 25, 2014. Customers who have been receiving this discount will start getting notifications in the mail on March 31.
The program offers monthly discounts to groups like employees of small and large businesses, government and the military.
said government employees and members of the military will continue receiving the discount, but corporations are being taken off the list.
There was a rumor that those who signed up before February 3 could keep their monthly discount program, but it looks like that's not happening. Everyone in the business category is getting the axe.
Instead, employers who currently have the Advantage Monthly Discount program can provide their employees with a $25 reward card.
“The old programs were designed to help big carriers close big corporate contracts, with employees as bargaining chips," said T-Mobile CEO John Legere. "We aren’t playing that game anymore. This change is about simplifying wireless for everyone … including employees of small and large companies alike.”
These customers will see adjustments to their bills after May 25.
T-Mobile is currently trying to shake up the wireless industry with its UnCarrier initiative, which can't be cheap. The carrier will likely have to make cuts in other areas to ensure that it can provide such services it's promising to customers, such as
paying up to $350
in early termination fees (ETFs) and offering
for unlimited international text and data.
It was reported that T-Mobile's Q4 contract cost was
the amount of Verizon's.

Without any information in the article about how much these corporate discounts are in comparison to what is available to the public it is difficult to see if this will really be a big deal or not.
