T-Mobile and Walmart offer contract-free 4G plan on the cheap


T-Mobile and Walmart have announced a new option for those who don’t like to sign the hefty 2 year agreements that come with a new line of phone service. Though this is certainly not the first partnership between T-Mobile and Walmart, the latest offering brings what 60% of Walmart Mobile customers want in a non-contract plan: 4G data speeds.

The plan will cost users $30 per month, and the details are as follows:

  • 100 talking minutes, with a $0.10 per minute charge above 100
  • Unlimited texting
  • 5GB of 4G data speeds, with T-Mobile’s customary throttling after 5GB is hit.

The new Walmart plan will be available at over 2,000 Wal-Mart stores nationwide, and will launch on October 16th. To couple with this service, Walmart will be launching their first 4G prepaid device (yet to be announced).

All in all, this plan seems pretty sweet for those of you who don’t talk on your phones much, and is a good option for those who don’t want to be locked into a contract for 2 years.

Any of you out there interested in Walmart’s new prepaid plan?  Excited that there is finally a prepaid plan that offers 4G speeds?

How many of you out there actually have a prepaid plan? Sound off in the comments.
