T-Mobile is rolling out a new unlimited-data plan on September 5 after dropping all of their unlimited-data plans early last year. The nation's fourth-largest cell phone company said Wednesday that the new plan will be a "truly Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan" for $20 USD per month on Value plans and $30 USD per month on Family plans.
Currently, T-Mobile offers customers two plans with 2GB and 5GB data caps that allow users to go over, but slow down their usage when they exceed those limits. The new plans will reportedly not be limited in this way.
T-Mobile, like the third and fifth largest cell phone companies, Sprint and MetroPCS, are offering the unlimited-data plans in the hope of competing with the top two companies Verizon and AT&T, which both no longer offer such plans.
AT&T, the nation's second-largest carrier, stopped signing up customers for unlimited data plans two years ago, while No. 1 Verizon Wireless stopped last year. Both have shifted toward lifting all limits on calls and texting, but limiting data usage.
