T-Mobile’s new single unlimited plan -- T-Mobile One -- is set to go live on September 6th of this year, which is about a week away. But apparently, the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States is bringing some last minute changes to its latest plan just days before it officially launches. What changes exactly? These include faster unlimited hotspot data, HD day passes, and the introduction of a new One Plus premium unlimited option.
Nearly a couple of weeks ago, T-Mobile had announced a new plan called T-Mobile One, which came with unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and data for $70 per month for a single line of service, $50 per month for a second line of service, and $20 for extra lines of service (up to a maximum of eight lines). But it appeared that many were not happy with the T-Mobile One unlimited option. The most common complaint from the public was that the new plan limited video streaming for 480p, and also, users took issue with the fact that the plan was capping hotspot speeds at 2G.
It is a good thing T-Mobile has paid some attention to these complaints because the wireless carrier has just revealed that it is introducing one day HD passes, which will allow subscribers to enjoy access to unlimited HD video streaming for a period of 24 hours for an extra cost of $3. Not only that, T-Mobile has also decided to provide subscribers of T-Mobile One with mobile hotspot service on its 3G network, which means that hotspot speeds will improve from 128 kbps to 512 kbps.
Moreover, the major US wireless carrier has taken the opportunity to announce a premium unlimited plan designed for customers with heavy data usage.This plan is called T-Mobile One Plus, and already comes with unlimited HD video, unlimited 4G hotspot access and 3G data roaming in over 140 countries and territories for an extra $25 for each line of service.
T-Mobile has also proceeded to launching T-Mobile One and T-Mobile One Plus earlier than expected on September 1st, instead of the previous schedule of September 6th. It bears noting that T-Mobile will be throttling high end users who go beyond their monthly allotments, which means that neither plan is actually strictly unlimited.
Another major US wireless carrier, Sprint, had introduced its own unlimited data plan (Unlimited Freedom) around the same time T-Mobile announced its T-Mobile One option. Also, less than a week ago, Sprint also debuted its new Unlimited Freedom Premium option, which is an upgraded version of the Unlimited Freedom plan it had unveiled days earlier.
