T-Mobile (TMUS) Cuts LTE iPad Prices, Offers Free Data For Tablets Through 2014

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- T-Mobile TMUS announced a new promotion that will cut the price of LTE tablets and offer free data for tablets through the end of 2014.

T-Mobile stock was falling 2.9% to $30.78.

The new promotion, called Operation Tablet Freedom, offers LTE tablets for the same price as Wi-Fi tablet, cutting prices by up to $130. Under the new promotion an entry-level LTE iPad Air would cost $499 instead of $629. The promotion also offers 1GB of free LTE data each month through the end of 2014.

The caveat to the deal is it's only available to T-Mobile smartphone customers. Those who want the free data options will also have to pay for phone service through the carrier.

Operation Tablet Feature is the second of three "Un-carrier" announcements T-Mobile has planned for the week.
