T-Mobile Will Offer A True Unlimited 4G Data Plan on September 5
Unlimited data plans are something that most mobile phone service providers have started to take away from their customers and are now adding shared data plans, such as Verizon and AT&T. Sprint is known for offering Unlimited 4G data plans in the US, but T-Mobile is claiming that it's providing more extensive 4G coverage to its customers.
T-Mobile offered "unlimited" data plans up-until May 2011. These data plans weren't really considered unlimited data plans because of how T-Mobile would throttle down speeds, after customers would go over a certain data threshold.
TMoNews was the first to break the news, with leaked pictures of a flyer that shows T-Mobile’s new Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data add-on plans. The unlimited 4G data plans will cost $30 a month for Classic talk and text customers or $20 for Value customers.
Customers who currently have the 2GB package can now upgrade to a true unlimited and uncapped 4G data plan for just $10 more per month. T-Mobile will continue to offer its current, tiered plans and customers won't have to switch if they don’t want too.
One set back for all you Hotspot users hoping to use that true unlimited 4G data on other wireless devices, it's a no go. T-Mobile will limit the new unlimited 4G data plan to your smartphone mobile device only. So if you're looking for an official way to tether from your device, you will have to add on another Hotspot package to your mobile bill.
T-Mobile will start to officially offer the unlimited 4G data plan starting September 5. Is this a good reason for you to jump ship from your current mobile carrier, such as Verizon or AT&T and go with T-Mobile? Let us know your thoughts below.
