Starting on October 18, prepaid T-Mobile customers have a raft of new options when it comes to their monthly plan, and that now includes mobile data. The plans apply to both feature phones and smartphones.
The new plans are:
- $70/month Unlimited Talk and Text with 2GB of Data
- $50/month Unlimited Talk and Text with 100MB of Data
- $30/month 1,500 Talk and Text (mix and match voice and text messages) with 30MB of Data
- Unlimited Text and $0.10/minute; and
- $1.49/day Web DayPass.
T-Mobile is also rolling out new prepaid mobile broadband data plans that are compatible with its Jet Prepaid USB Laptop Stick product. The laptop dongle comes packaged in a prepaid kit, with a SIM card included. These data plans are aimed at those who don't use mobile broadband all that frequently, but still have need of a backup option just in case.
Prepaid customers can pay $50 for 1GB of data per month, $30 for 300MB of data per month, or $10 for 100MB of data per week.
T-Mobile didn't mention how much the laptop stick will cost. It also didn't mention if the new laptop stick can access its standard HSPA 3G network or its faster HSPA+ 3G network.
All of the above plans are available without a contract, without a credit check, and won't hit users with overage charges if they surpass their limits.
