T-Mobile plans refreshed: Monthly4G and Unlimited Rate

T-Mobile USA has refreshed its monthly price plans, offering new Monthly4G and unlimited data packages for individuals and families. Three tiers of voice minutes are on offer - 500, 1000 or unlimited for individuals; 1000, 2000 or unlimited for families - from $59.99 each month (individual). Add-ons include 200MB, 2GB, 5GB or 10GB of data.

T-Mobile describe the data packages as "unlimited" despite the caps; that's because the carrier will simply cut your speed once you exceed your allowance, rather than kick you off altogether. There are also the usual text messaging add-ons available.

The T-Mobile Monthly4G plans, meanwhile,  are month-to-month rather than demanding the typical two-year agreement, and kick off at $50 for unlimited talk/text/data with the first 100MB at 4G speed or $70 for unlimited talk/text/data with the first 5GB at 4G speed. After that, speeds are "slowed" for the remainder of the period, though T-Mobile doesn't exactly specify what that slowed speed will be.
