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.
