T-Mobile announces new unlimited data plans starting September 5th

If you're on T-Mobile and not overly comfortable with your current data plan, come September 5th you'll be able to swap out that old, limited and possibly speed capped data plan to one of their freshly announced unlimited 4G data plans. Of course, that 4G really means 48Mbps HSPA+ and not 4G LTE but you're all likely used to seeing that by now.

“We’re big believers in customer-driven innovation, and our Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan is the answer to customers who are frustrated by the cost, complexity and congested networks of our competitors,” said Kevin McLaughlin, vice president, marketing, T-Mobile USA.  “Consumers want the freedom of unlimited 4G data. Our bold move to be the only wireless carrier to offer an Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan reinforces our value leadership and capitalizes on the strength of our nationwide 4G network.”

New and existing customers can upgrade to the unlimited nationwide 4G Data plans at a cost of $20 per month when added to a Value voice and text plan or $30 per month when added to a Classic voice and text plan. The only gotcha here is if you're making use of a T-Mobile HotSpt plan, the new plans aren't compatible with that.

If you're looking for the full details, the press release is below for your viewing pleasure.

T-Mobile Unleashes Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data

Starting Sept. 5, T-Mobile will be the only carrier with a nationwide 4G network to offer unlimited nationwide 4G data

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Aug. 22, 2012 — T-Mobile USA, Inc., today announced an industry first — a truly Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan.

The new plan is designed to satisfy both data-hungry customers who want to experience all their smartphones are capable of and those wanting the peace of mind of never having to keep track of their data usage.

Today’s smartphones offer amazing experiences, and consumers are increasingly relying on them for everything from navigation, entertainment and shopping to just staying connected. With the introduction of the Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan, T-Mobile® is the only U.S. carrier to empower customers to do what they want, when they want, with their smartphones by making fast, nationwide 4G data accessible for everyone — without limits and at a great value.

Our bold move to be the only wireless carrier to offer an Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan reinforces our value leadership and capitalizes on the strength of our nationwide 4G network.”


For customers seeking an unlimited experience on their smartphones, T-Mobile offers several ways for new and existing customers to take advantage of its Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan.

Current T-Mobile customers on Classic or Value plans can simply upgrade their existing service by adding an Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan.

The Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan will cost $20 per month when added to a Value voice and text plan or $30 per month when added to a Classic voice and text plan. For example, a single line Value plan with unlimited talk and text combined with unlimited nationwide 4G data will cost $69.99 or a single line Classic plan with unlimited talk, unlimited text and unlimited nationwide 4G data will cost $89.99.


Available starting Sept. 5, T-Mobile’s Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan will provide smartphone customers with uncompromised, dependable access to data on the blazing-fast speeds of T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G network.

was really exited about this then i read the hotspot part. -definite deal breaker i use BB9900 hotspot 3 times a week. cant live without it

also just for the commenters:

FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"The only gotcha here is if you're making use of a T-Mobile HotSpt plan, the new plans aren't compatible with that."

*stares at photo of a T-Mobile BlackBerry in Hotspot mode....* Perhaps a different BlackBerry picture would be better suited here? :)

Crypt1c

lol, its actually on a wifi network called "Hotspot".

Bla1ze

Devhux: USING your device as a HotSpot (sharing your devices internet connection with another WiFi capable device) and being CONNECTED to a HotSpot (connecting to an internet connection setup with a router by someone else or a carrier to not use your mobile network) are two entirely separate things.

Devhux

I was thinking the picture showed the phone was being used as a hotspot - not that it was connected to one.

My bad. :)

redk

I never go over 2gb to I think I'm keeping my 5gb plan with hotspot. To be fair sprint does not include the hotspot capability with their unlimited plan either.

Crypt1c

I wish they made this available awhile ago. As long as I can still use bridge, and tether to my computer.

BruvvaPete

I had no idea T-Mobile was based in such a small town (Bellevue).

KiLuMaNaTi

Hopefully this forces other carriers to do the same. Rogers 6 gig plan up here in Canada seems like nothing now. I'm sure it will probably be a while before big carriers do anything like that here though. Sure I could get WIND but I could only use that at work and not at home because of a lack of cell towers. Kudos to T-Mobile.

mousii

If the user would try to share internet through bluetooth, would it work?
Yes, definitely being able to share the internet with a laptop/tablet is a must! (Through Hotspot/bluetooth/bridge)

coolaide

Hope ATT follows suit. I hae having to worry about data limits.

beamolite

What good is unlimited data when you are stuck on 2G in your area? All the other carriers have 4G in my area. The only thing that keeps me with TMO is price and customer service.

shupor

My sentiments exactly. You rarely ever get 3G speeds on their horrible network anyways so some good their pseudo-4G is.

Very much like you, customer service, price and Wifi calling is what has kept me with them over the years

koool1

Very few people need unlimited data. I would love a 2GB blackberry plan for $40.

rifka_f

This is the primary reason why I love my Bold 9700 /PlayBook combination. Currently bridging is not penalized by T-Mobile. However, it's probably a matter of time before it figures out a way to do this.

Wishing and hoping that BB10 is released SOON...

Paintedeyes

i think i'll stick with my grandfathered true unlimited data and my hotspot.

antheauxny

Wait...how are they the first *truly* unlimited 4G? Sprint has had unlimited 4G for two years now with no data caps or anything. Or am I missing something...? Lol.

PhilESkyline

Does this mean I can use my BlackBerry Bold on my laptop as a modem (tether) and still get unlimited 3G/4G speeds?

xenrobia

When is T-Mobile coming to Canada? I can hear Bell, Rogers and Telus whining already!

Rootbrian

WINDmobile, Mobilicity=T-mobile (T-)oronto Mobile.

Lol

Jamma3

Now tell me what difference would it make to your BB...phone won't go faster and browser will still be slow and with everything going through RIM server and compressing you will never need unlimited with BB.

Jaredius

Everything is compressed? Are you sure about that? Plus, IMHO the advantages of using RIM's "proxy" outweigh the disadvantages. But I'm just someone who believes iPhone and Android are toys first, secure communications devices second (third or fourth maybe when talking security).

Jaredius

"Of course, that 4G really means 48Mbps HSPA+ and not 4G LTE but you're all likely used to seeing that by now." I thought I read in a few different speed-test comparison articles that despite the the difference most who are hating on T-Mo emphasize, T-Mo wins anyway. Regardless, UMA FTW...and now unlimited 4G...sorry "48Mbps HSPA+ these" FTW. They all suck in the end.

jly.public

What good is 4G if all data is going through RIM's proxy servers? or am i missing something?

Rootbrian

8MB or 16MB is going through them at a time. Streaming, uploading and downloading is cellular data, unless it actually supports going through BIS.
