Last month we’ve talked a bit about T-Mobile’s upcoming nationwide 4G unlimited data plan but now everything’s official and the new plan went live, just in time for the back-to-school rush. Now before you ask, this particular data plan is indeed unlimited and that’s why it caught our attention. Whilst the other “unlimited” plans were capped at 2, 5 or 10 GB, Magenta’s new offer really is unlimited and has no speed limits or averages and no data caps.
What’s even better is that if you’re going sign a new two-year agreement you can also benefit from an extra discount if your contract goes hand in hand with subsidized devices like the HTC One S.

T-Mobile’s Unlimited Data Plan – Price
Evidently, now that we’ve established that the new data plan is truly unlimited, the biggest question is, how much will you need to pay for it on a monthly basis?
The equation is quite simple so here’s the skinny. An Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan costs $20 per month when coupled with a Value voice/text plan, and $30 / month when mated with a Classic plan.
To make things even simpler, if you’re planning to get the data plan without a subsidized phone you’ll pay $69.99 per month, voice and data plans included. If on the other hand you’d like to get your hands on a subsidized smartphone as well then you’ll pay $89.99 a month for voice and the brand new unlimited data plan. Sounds good?
In the end, we’re quite curious about how T-Mobile’s decision to re-introduce a truly unlimited data plan will affect other US carriers, because as you may already know, Sprint and now Magenta are the only US networks to offer unlimited data. That being said, will Verizon and AT&T rethink their strategy and should they consider re-introducing their own unlimited data plans?
Thanks Android Central for the heads-up regarding T-Mobile’s unlimited data plan.
