Carriers have a history of putting qualifiers in the terms of their "unlimited" data plans that actually limit how much data a user can access. T-Mobile has announced a new plan with no such qualifiers or secret limits - unlimited means unlimited.
Beginning September 5, T-Mobile will offer its Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan to new and existing customers. The plan has no data caps, and it doesn't throttle download speeds once a user crosses a threshold of gigabytes used in a billing period. T-Mobile will charge $20 per month when pairing the data plan with a Value voice and text plan, or $30 with its Classic voice and text plan. That will bring total costs for T-Mobile's unlimited calling, texting, and 4G data plans to $69.99 or $89.99.
T-Mobile is now one of only two major carriers to offer a "truly unlimited" data plan. While AT&T and Verizon charge customers based on which much data they use in a billing period, Sprint charges one standard price for data usage. The new Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan gives T-Mobile customers the option to avoid having to monitor their data usage or worry about slower download speeds once they exceed limits.source: T-Mobile
