Report: T-Mobile to Include 500MB of Data With All Plans

T-Mobile  has had quite a busy week. First it revealed that it will launch its 4G LTE network at the end of March, and now it is reportedly getting ready to revamp its usage plans. According to a leaked data sheet posted by Engadget, the carrier is doing away with talk and text limits and will instead only offer unlimited plans. What’s more, the plans will also include a minimum of 500MB of data at no additional charge.

If the data sheet is accurate, it would mean that users who subscribe to an individual Classic Unlimited plan, which includes unlimited talk and text for $59.99, would get access to 500MB of data for free. Similarly, a family Classic Unlimited plan, which features unlimited talk and text for $99.98, would gain 500MB of data.

If you need more data, individual plan subscribers can get 2.5GB of data and unlimited talk and text for $80. A similar plan will cost family plan subscribers $140. From there, individual plan subscribers can add an additional 1GB of data for an extra $10. Family plan subscribers who want to add an additional 1GB will be able to do so for an extra $20. It doesn’t appear as though there will be any changes to T-Mobile’s unlimited data plans, which will still cost individual subscribers $90 per month and family subscribers $160. 

While the changes to T-Mobile’s plans are still unconfirmed, they would make sense for the carrier, which is in the midst of reinventing itself to become a bigger player in the carrier wars. Just last week, the Department of Justice approved the T-Mobile’s purchase of Metro PCS giving it a larger spectrum and later this month the carrier is expected to light up its new 4G LTE network.
