T-Mobile has just launched a new limited time offer for its prepaid wireless fans. The promotional offer is for unlimited talk, text and data with the first 10 GB at full LTE speeds before data throttling for $50/month. Taxes and fees are not included in the price and will cost extra.
The promotional "Simply Prepaid" plan also includes what T-Mobile calls "Data Maximizer" which means that your video streams will be limited to DVD quality resolution or about 480p. T-Mobile asserts that your data will last up to 3x longer due to the feature. Music Unlimited, or streaming music from select providers that does not count against your high speed data cap is also included, as are mobile hotspot, domestic data roaming and Wi-Fi calling.
The new promotional plan is a bit oddly priced when compared to T-Mobile's two other monthly Simply Prepaid plans which leads me to believe that T-Mobile is testing this plan out as a potential and permanent replacement for it's other Simply Prepaid plans. T-Mobile is after all, the carrier that claims to be all about simplification given that the company not long ago consolidated all of its postpaid plans into one offering called T-Mobile One.
T-Mobile's two other Simply Prepaid plans are priced as follows:
- $45/month - unlimited talk, text and data with the first 4 GB at 4G LTE speeds
- $55/month - unlimited talk, text and data with the first 6 GB at 4G LTE speeds
Both plans also include Data Maximizer, mobile hotspot, Music Unlimited, and Wi-Fi calling. T-Mobile of course does offer one other monthly prepaid plan, however, that plan does not fall under the "Simply Prepaid" moniker but rather T-Mobile One Prepaid and it includes unlimited 4G LTE data.
What do you think of this new promotional offering from T-Mobile? Do you also believe it will one day be made into a permanent plan?
Those of you currently on the $55 Simply Prepaid plan should give T-Mobile a call at +1(855)-408-7784, or visit the T-Mobile website to change to the new promotional plan for better value. Those on the 4 GB plan that find the plan to contain a borderline amount of data for their needs should also consider the change as well.
