Featured: T-Mobile Brings Sprint some competition for Unlimited Data, launches Unlimited 4G data plans

September 5, 2012 - Written By Alexander Maxham

T-Mobile is marking it’s 10-year anniversary with something we can all love and enjoy, which is a brand new data plan that features unlimited data. No this isn’t one of those 2GB or 5GB plans they have already where you’re throttled after a certain data cap. This is truly unlimited 4G data, you can go ahead and get 100GB of their HSPA+ 4G speeds! Now that’s something to celebrate.

Prior to today, the only nationwide carrier to have unlimited data was Sprint. But we all know their network isn’t all that good. Actually it’s about as slow as dial-up, am I right? But to have unlimited data on a network that has HSPA+ speeds up to 42mbps, and you can even buy the Galaxy Nexus from Google Play and put it on the carrier, is way better. This might be just what T-Mobile needs to bring more subscribers in and pass Sprint to become the third largest carrier in the US.

These plans start as low as $54.99 and go all the way up to $89.99, they only work on the Value and Classic plans though. Also tethering is not included, it’s another $5. So anyone on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon or the other carriers ready to switch to T-Mobile now?

T-Mobile Celebrates 10 Years of Innovation With Launch of Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data Plans

From the iconic Sidekick to industry’s only national Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan, T-Mobile continues to reinvent the mobile experience

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Sept. 5, 2012 — T-Mobile USA, Inc. marked the 10th anniversary of its T-Mobile brand in the United States by making its new Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan available in stores today. The plan underscores T-Mobile’s longstanding focus on delivering customer value and service excellence through constant innovation.

“Since our inception, we’ve always strived to shake up the industry with plans, network capabilities, and innovative products and services for our customers,” said Brad Duea, senior vice president, product management, T-Mobile USA. “Today’s release of our Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan continues our tradition of bold moves that enhance the customer experience and change the way wireless is done.”

T-Mobile USA established its nationwide brand in September 2002 and has been quietly innovating ever since, beginning with Sidekick®, the first all-in-one wireless device with an unlimited data plan for consumers. The company is now one of the largest employers and best-kept secrets in the Seattle area, built on a legacy of wireless industry firsts, including these:

  • First Personal Coverage Check (2005) – Provided consumers with transparent view of network coverage where they live and work
  • First Wi-Fi Calling Service in U.S. (2007) – Allowed voice calling over Wi-Fi
  • First Android phone – T-Mobile G1â„¢ with Googleâ„¢ (2008) – Kicked off wave of subsequent Android offerings
  • First U.S. carrier to launch an HSPA+ network (2009) – Today, T-Mobile’s fast and dependable nationwide 4G network is available in 229 markets, reaching well over 220 million people
  • First to break from Subsidy Model (2009) – T-Mobile’s Even More plans and later Value Plans allow customers to pay for their devices over time or to bring their own devices to T-Mobile

Today marks another first: T-Mobile becomes the only carrier with a nationwide 4G network to offer unlimited nationwide 4G data. Featuring no data caps, no speed limits and no overages, as well as fast, dependable nationwide 4G coverage, T-Mobile’s new Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan offers the ultimate worry-free experience for data-hungry smartphone customers. The Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan is available at T-Mobile retail stores, on http://www.T-Mobile.com/unlimited-data-plan, and through select dealers and national retail stores.

To help customers quickly take full advantage of all the cool things smartphones can do — without limits or overages — T-Mobile customers who activate a new two-year contract on an Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan will be able to benefitfrom a sale on select 4G smartphones, including the HTC One S with $0.00 down payment, after $50 mail-in rebate card.1
