T-Mobile has had unlimited data plans before, but with a big asterisk – data throttling after the crossing of certain thresholds. Not so with these new data plans, which promise no throttling of any kind. T-Mobile is offering unrestricted, unlimited 4G, with surprisingly reasonable pricing that we’ll get to a little later. For now, we do need to point out one important caveat – no data tethering will be allowed with these new plans.
The new unlimited 4G data plans will be available to new and existing T-Mobile customers. If the plan is added to a Value voice and text plan, it will cost an extra $20 per month. For those with Classic voice and text plans, unlimited 4G will cost $30 per month.
With AT&T and Verizon offering tiered data plans, and Sprint having less 4G coverage and slightly more expensive plans, T-Mobile looks like the leader in the clubhouse when it comes to getting data at good value. Hopefully we’ll see T-Mobile’s line-up of smartphones available improve to go along with the new pricing.
