T-Mobile today announced a new series of plans called Simply Prepaid. The trio of plans offer unlimited data, text, and talk with scalable access to LTE 4G (the "unlimited data" applies only to 2G access). The entry-level plan costs $40 per month and includes 1GB of LTE; the mid-tier plan costs $50 per month and includes 3GB of LTE; and the high-end plan costs $60 per month and includes 5GB of LTE. Customers who exceed their LTE allotment will be throttled down to 128kbps for the remainder of the billing period. The Simply Prepaid plans are limited to a maximum speed of 8Mbps, even on LTE, and don't include Data Stash, tethering, Music Freedom, or Simple Global features. Taxes and fees are extra. T-Mobile's Simply Prepaid plans will be available beginning Jan. 25.

Further cannibalization of MetroPCS market...

I'm pretty much convinced that T-Mobile is still bitter of all the marketshare MetroPCS stole from them in the past. Since the aquisition, a number of measures have been taken by T-Mobile to downplay their significance.
They have plastered the T-Mobile name on EVERYTHING: In-store marketing, TV/Radio spots, to even the splash screen when you startup a Metro phone. They've adopted Metro's 4for100 holiday promo plan but then offered more data. Now they've adopted Metro's regular plans. Couple that with shoveling their year old leftover phones/Tablets (Galaxy Light, ZTE Z-MAX, etc) and the picture seems pretty clear.
T-Mobile has opened up new Markets for MetroPCS and get the occassional shout from John Legere but it seems to me that...

Simply more expensive

Wow, Un-uncarrier pricing plans. Both Cricket (with auto pay discount) and Sprint beat on price and both top T-Mobile in amount of data at top pricing tiers. In fact the first 2 tiers look suspiciously like, hmm, metro PCSs plans.

Try again John Legere; you're looking like the guys you slam.

Simply Simple

T-Mobile is the biggest 4G Data coverage scam on the market today. If I had a dollar for every time I went off a major road, interstate, or out of a major city and the phone went to EDGE/2G, I could save up enough $$$$$$ to seriously upgrade the network. 🙄

if I'm reading that article

Correctly, only 8mbps is allowed on lte, I'm definitely getting the short end of the stick. Ripoff!
