T-Mobile Adds New Data Option to its Simple Starter Plan
U.S. mobile carrier, T-Mobile, announced today that they would be adding to their Simple Starter plan with a new data option, where users can quadruple their data for less money than other competitor companies. This is apparently a limited–time deal and can change at any time. The offer is supposed to start on Wednesday, September 3rd. Just a few days ago, the company announced an offer of one year of free LTE data to new customers that will begin on August 29th.
The starting price of T-Mobile’s Simple Starter plan is $40, and that includes unlimited text, talk and 500MB of LTE data. Starting September 9th, for an additional $5 per month, customers can get 2GB of data. This addition is supposed to serve as a better option for overage fees charged by competitor carriers. John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile stated:
People who use loads of data use T-Mobile. And it’s no wonder. The old guard telecoms punish people for using more data on their networks with crazy overage charges and fees. Get Verizon’s $50 plan and use just one gig more data, and the price jumps to $65. It’s crazy. At T-Mobile, we designed our network data-strong so our customers could use the hell out of it. And that’s just what they’re doing.

That's rubbish, in the uk I pay £18 about $30 and get unlimited texts, unlimited mins, unlimited data, unlimited tethering and unlimited roaming in about 15 country's. The US networks suck

My contract is up now so I'm 1 month rolling but got it with the iPhone 5. Is your contract with 3?

You missed out, you should have gone with 3. Unlimited data and roaming

I can see why u went with 3 but without sounding shite I need a reliable network that works no matter where I am lol. I know all networks have there issues when out and about but feel 3 prob have more than others.

I'm in Leicester and I can honestly say there is nowhere I can't get signal and even when I can't get 4g the 3G is about 15mbs. But I know what you mean if the signal is patchy where you live it would be a nightmare

I'm in Romford,Essex so I'm close to London and usually get 4g too but it's when I leave the city is where I notice issues. Abroad too but then Vodafone is pretty much everywhere now I think.

I like that 3 have the free roaming now too do you don't need to worry about using your phone abroad. I tested it over in America about 20 months ago and it was wicked.

I thought t-mobile was all unlimited data and the limits only applied to 4G LTE.

I'm O2 in belfast. Get 3gb data, unlimited SMS, unlimited minutes for £22 a month with iPhone 5s. O2 are okay coverage wise, I get 4g, Vodafone and three are shite here also. Only other decent one is EE, but their plans are a rip off!
