T-Mobile today made several adjustments to its T-Mobile One plan in order to halt the firestorm of criticism the plan has received. First, T-Mobile One subscribers will be able to use an unlimited amount of mobile hotspot data at speeds up to 512Kbps. Hotspot speeds were capped at 128Kbps in the first incarnation of T-Mobile One. Second, T-Mobile is offering HD day passes for $3. Customers can pay $3 to stream as much HD video as they want, providing a bit more flexibility than the monthly add-on originally announced by T-Mobile. The day passes are good for 24 hours. Third, T-Mobile is introducing T-Mobile One Plus, an enhanced version of the plan that includes unlimited mobile hotspot, unlimited use of HD day passes, and 256Kbps free international roaming. According to T-Mobile, the unlimited HD day passes don't cost anything, but they must be toggled on each time the customer wants to use them. The phone will still default to standard definition video until the day pass is turned on. The HD day pass will expire automatically, resetting the device to standard definition at the end of each day. The T-Mobile One Plus add-on will cost $25 extra per month. Last, T-Mobile is launching its T-Mobile One plans five days earlier than originally announced. The plan will be available beginning September 1. The starting price is $75 per month for unlimited talk, text, and 4G data. T-Mobile One subscribers can use up to 26 GB of 4G LTE data before they might encounter throttling on congested cell sites. The price drops to $70 per month if customers use auto-pay.

Still not diggn' it

So for $95-100/month you get 256MB of international roaming??? And you have to toggle Binge On...I mean HD video 'on' ??
Uncarrier...for every pain point we fix, we'll create more.
Might as well just get their current unlimited plan for $95.
I think you are confused on the details.

First, the international roaming is 256kbps, talking about speed, not 256 mb total data. The data would be unlimited at that speed.

2nd, on the new $95 plan, one would get unlimited lte hotspot, which is...
