T-Mobile Offers New Range of Mobile Broadband Plans
T-Mobile USA today announced a new set of mobile broadband plans that offer the choice between unlimited high speed or throttled speeds. The plans, which apply to mobile broadband devices such as tablets, mobile hotspots, and laptop dongles, include 500MB, 2GB, 5GB, and 10GB options. The unlimited high-speed plans won't throttle down speeds when users meet their monthly data allotment, but will charge overage fees. The fees cost $0.10 per megabyte for the 500MB plan, $0.03 per megabyte for the 2GB plan, and $0.02 per megabyte for the 5GB and 10GB plans. For customers looking to control monthly costs, the other set of plans offers the same data options, but throttles speeds once users reach their monthly data limit. Prices vary widely depending on which plan, and range between $19.99 per month and $72.99 per month.
