T-Mobile Monthly4G customers rejoice; the carrier will be launching an unlimited 4G data plan on January 9th. The prepaid plan will be priced at $70 a month, and will provide the first 5GB of data at 4G speeds. This is a jump from the current $60 plan, which offers 2GB of data at 4G speeds, with it dropping down to 3G speeds after the cap is reached.
Says T-Mobile, the plan is "perfect for video chat, streaming music/movies/TV and playing online games." Of course, the plan comes sans-contract, one of its most alluring features. In addition to the unlimited data and 5GB at 4G speeds, the plan also offers unlimited talk and text. Obviously, one needs a 4G-capable smartphone for the plan.
For those who don't do a lot of talking, T-Mobile already offers a plan with 5GB of data at 4G speeds for $30 per month, with the catch being that it only offer 100 minutes, along with unlimited text messaging. This particular plan is also limited to customers who acquired it through T-Mobile's website or Wal-Mart. The $50 monthly plan only offers the first 100MB at 4G speeds.
T-Mobile offers a few different 4G-capable smartphones for their prepaid customers, including the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, LG Optimus L9, the Galaxy S Blaze, and the Galaxy S II. On December 26, we reported that current rumors state the popular Galaxy S III with LTE support will be heading to T-Mobile sometime this year.
