T-Mobile has given its unlimited data customers 2 more gigabytes of data just for mobile hotspot use. The unlimited plan costs $80 per month and had included 5 GB for mobile hotspots; now customers have access to 7 GB of data for mobile hotspots. "We've enabled mobile hotspot benefits on all active data plans," said T-Mobile in a statement provided to Fierce Wireless. "The improvements we've made to our data plans make our rate plans even simpler. Now you can use your paid 4G LTE data however you choose--between your smartphone and for other devices with tethering. When you reach your paid data allotment, your speeds will be reduced, not capped, so you never worry about overages." T-Mobile's $60 plan offers 3 GB of data for mixed smartphone/hotspot use and the $70 plan offers 5 GB of mixed smartphone/hotspot use. Customers of all plans can pay $10 per month for an additional 2 GB of mobile hotspot data.

WOW! I bet no other carrier can beat that at the same price point...

This is just awesome. Unlimited data on my phone and 7G to share for $80....
Sprint has it for $60. and $50 with an iPhone.
thats not really that impressive. now if they would expand their coverage and have better coverage than att then that plan would be ompressive. all tmobile is doing is trying to cover up that they have ****ty service by having cheaper plans

$70 dollar Unlimited plan (Grandfathered)

I'm assuming they aren't adding anything to the $70 dollar unlimited plan they used to have? We got service with them a few months before they raised the Unlimited to the current $80 plan. Our plan came with 2.5GB of Hotspot data but then they upgraded it to 3GB before introducing the $80 dollar plan. I'm assuming they're not adding anything extra for those people? I don't really use it much but it would have been a nice little bonus. Oh well. I guess if I really need it, for 10 bucks an additional 4GB of hotspot really isn't too bad of a deal. Cool of them to do.
You could always root your phone and use your unlimited data as a hotspot instead of the hotspot data.
They actually did. Every single customer that had an Unlimited data feature that had a specific amount of data to be used for Mobile Hotspot had that Hotspot allotment increased by 2GB. The old $20.00 UNL+3GB SMHS is now $20.00 UNL+5GB SMHS.
