T-Mobile Simple Starter customers will soon be able to quadruple their data for $5

T-Mobile Uncarrier

Back in April, T-Mobile took the wraps off of a new Simple Starter rate plan that offered unlimited talk and text along with 500MB of LTE data for $40 per month. And while the plan is certainly affordable, it doesn’t include very much data. That’s going to change next month, though.

T-Mobile says that, starting Sept. 3, customers can quadruple the Simple Starter data allotment for $5. Since the base plan includes 500MB of LTE data, that means that subscribers can get unlimited talk and text with 2GB of LTE data for $45 per month.

While 2GB of data still may not be enough for some heavier data users, it’s a much more manageable amount for a lot of folks. And for just $5 more per month, we can’t think of many reasons why Simple Starter subscribers wouldn’t want to sign up for this add-on when it goes live.

    Dude ur comments a joke, 45 bucks for 2gb of Lte on a pretty darn competitive and definitely still improving network is not such a bad deal. Or u can deal with boost or virgin mobile and save a couple pennies bud

      I don’t care about competitiveness its 2014 these stupid data caps are a joke and should go away

      • HoFoMoTo

        You don’t get it do you? Mobile capacity (spectrum-wise) is nowhere near infinite. Data caps in some form are necessary no matter how you look at it. True unlimited is great but it is completely unsustainable.

    Nearly as good as StraightTalk who use T-mobile network but with a higher data 4G cap, or same price on AT&T for more coverage than T-mobile

      But Straight Talk doesn’t allow you to stream on your allotment of data. You can upload and download but no media streaming! check the fine print.

    Wonder what they will do for the subscribers of the 50$ a month for 1gb of data?? Much better deal to go with the 45$ and get twice the data…
