T-Mobile to launch truly unlimited 4G Data plans on September 5th


If data caps and throttled data speeds have been keeping you up at night, T-Mobile may have just what you’re looking for to ensure a good night’s sleep. Starting on September 5th, T-Mobile will release its new nationwide 4G data plan. The new T-Mobile unlimited 4G data plans 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 T-Mobile’s Value customers, the new unlimited data plan would be priced the same as the current 2GB plan while Classic plan customers will be paying $10 more per month over the 2GB plan – making it an offer most data hungry users will not be able to refuse.

Currently, Sprint is the only other service provider in the country which offers truly unlimited data, but T-Mobile has a lot more coverage with its HSPA+ network than Sprint does with WiMax and LTE combined. T-Mobile has not stated when it plans to light up its first LTE markets, but we’re hoping T-Mobile will be promoting truly unlimited LTE in the next 6-9 months.

T-Mobile’s press release does not mention how the new unlimited data plan will be priced for those on family plans. We’ll have to wait to see what the final breakdown is once the plan is rolled out on September 5th.

Which would you rather have: T-Mobile’s truly unlimited 4G data or the new shared data offerings from Verizon and AT&T?
