T-Mobile believes in thanking our customers -- and that includes the millions of military members and their families across the nation. We're taking our commitment to those who commit their all to the next level, with a company-wide initiative that includes the biggest military discount in wireless, investment in LTE network expansion around US military bases, and a pledge to hire 10,000 veterans and military spouses.
T-Mobile ONE Military
On April 22nd we launched T-Mobile ONE Military, a new plan for military customers, their families, and their small businesses. T-Mobile ONE Military will offer every incredible benefit included in T-Mobile ONE, with our biggest discount ever for families. With taxes and fees already included, you get 20% off your first line, and half off each additional family line added -- up to five additional lines. T-Mobile ONE Military is available for active duty military, Reserve, National Guard, veterans, and Gold Star families. Customers can verify eligibility online or in store!
And to keep the half-off thanks rolling, for a limited time we're also thrilled to offer the latest Samsung devices to our military customers at a discount, too. When you activate a T-Mobile ONE Military plan, and purchase a Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, or S8 Active on an equipment installment plan, you can receive 50% off via promotional bill credits.

Network expansion for military communities
Excellent plans and stellar devices need great service to support them -- the way our service members support us. So, in 2018, T-Mobile will invest more than half a billion dollars to expand LTE coverage and capacity around military bases and neighboring communities. We're laying the groundwork for 5G as well, putting infrastructure in place to make sure that once this groundbreaking new tech is ready to go live, our military communities are poised for access.
Commitment to hire 10,000 veterans and military spouses
The beating heart of our military is in the men, women, and families who serve. So we're investing in people, too. We know our veterans and their families bring incredible skill and strength, and we're thrilled to expand on a commitment already in place by pledging to hire 10,000 veterans and military spouses in the next five years. For those transitioning to civilian careers, we're helping FourBlock expand their impressive Career Readiness Program -- to 20 total cities and online nationwide this fall -- so all military service members and veterans can enroll from anywhere for free.
