A week or so ago, T-Mobile announced its newest Amp One unlimited data plans with several catches. T-Mobile said it figured out how to give its customers unlimited data, and that is by throttling all video streams to optimize the network.
Surely there were many concerned customers and Net Neutrality activists and T-Mobile has heard everyone loud and clear. T-Mobile announced a few changes to the way the plan works and the kinds of add-ons for the plan.
For the standard ONE plan:
- Unlimited tethering is now 3G speeds rather than 2G speeds
- Customers can buy $3 day passes to stream unlimited videos in full quality
For the ONE Plus plan:
- Customers have unlimited 4G LTE mobile hotspot connectivity
- Customers roaming overseas will have access to 3G speeds (instead of 2G) where available
The ONE plan starts at $70 for a single line, $50 for the second line, and $20 for an additional line. A family of four can all have ONE data plans and pay $160 per month for service. Depending on your needs, this could be perfectly fine.
The price above applies when the $5 autopay credit is applied. Also, its worth mentioning that users that consume more than 26GB of data in a month are subject to throttling during more demanding peak hours and locations.
What do you think of T-Mobile ONE plan? Is it too pricey for an unlimited data plan?
