How much can you get for a $ 40 prepaid plan? Well, T-Mobile has just rolled out an answer for that, starting this Janurary 25th T-Mobile hopes to give its consumer more ‘bang for their buck, with their innovative product Simply Prepaid plan, in denominations of $40, $50 and $ 60, which offers more unlimited data and talk time than their completion and which varies only in the amount of 4G LTE data, offered.
With these plans T-Mobile hopes to dig further into the discounted smartphone plans and thereby give their customers more choices.
To put the plans into perspective here is a break- up of the same:
- $40 a month for unlimited data, talk and text, plus up to 1 GB of 4G LTE
- $50 a month for unlimited data, talk and text, plus up to 3 GB of 4G LTE
- $60 a month for unlimited data, talk and text, plus up to 5 GB of 4G LTE.
Simply Prepaid customers can also tap into free Wi-Fi calling and download a song in less than 10 seconds or a 30-minute HDTV show in just eight minutes with speeds up to 8 Mbps. After you hit your allotted limit your connection drops down to a slower 2G level, or 129 Kbps for the rest of the month. T-Mobile’s new plans will not include tethering, and unused data cannot be rolled over to the next month.
With the new plans the company hopes to break new grounds and set new rules for the competition and hopes to woo in more customers.
The new plan will co-exist with other data plans offered by T-Mobile and even though it might be competing with MeteroPCS brand another subsidiary of T-Mobile, who has a better $ 60 plan than compared to the Simply Prepaid Plan, but according to a spokesperson of T-Mobile they would primarily differ in the services provided and would not be a cause of concern.
This recent rollout by T-Mobile can be seen as an answer to Virgin’s shared data plan concept.
