Following rumors that T-Mobile would soon “kiss contracts goodbye” as part of its “Un-Carrier” strategy, the company has revealed new plans which eliminate “two-year contracts altogether,” reports The Verge and TmoNews.
With these new plans, T-Mobile claims to offer unlimited text, talk and Web, starting at $50 per month. Unfortunately, these plans actually range from $50 to $110 in cost, varying based on how much you like having 4G Internet access. The $50 plan includes just 500 MB of 4G data, after which you’ll enjoy 2G speeds — which will get you nowhere on many modern sites and services.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
For the $110 plan, you’ll get 12 additional gigs, which can also be used through your phone’s hotspot functionality. If, however, you’re not interested in using your data across devices, T-Mobile’s unlimited 4G data plan (for just one phone) will set you back $70 per month.
T-Mobile appears to be banking a lot on their LTE network but who knows how it will hold up, especially since the new plans are offering 4G, not 3G data.
