T-Mobile Unlimited plan limit could be raised to 50GB

The Un-carrier might be at it again and its next move could definitely give its rivals and their subscribers pause for thought. Although “unlimited” these days no longer really means what the word literally means, T-Mobile seems to be doing everything it can to make it close enough. A recent tip says that as early as Wednesday, the network’s deprioritization limit, a.k.a. the Fair Usage Threshold, could be raised to as much as 50 GB, more than double its paltry initial limit of 23 GB, and definitely more than what its competitors are offering.

It has started to launch its products earlier than everyone else, with some disastrous results, and it seems that T-Mobile is following that trend as far as the Galaxy Note 8 is concerned.

The carrier certainly can't be accused of wasting any time, having secured the 600 MHz spectrum licenses only two months ago.
