T-Mobile Re-arranges Data Caps on Simple Choice Plans, Adds International Texting
How About T-Mobile Adding More DOMESTIC Roaming Data...!
On a trip to Northern Wisconsin last week I was roaming on at&t.
Most of the at&t towers in Northeast Wisconsin have been upgraded to HSPA+ 42.2 Mbsp "4G".
I am using an unlocked rooted Samsung Rugby Pro (at&t branded). I set my Rugby Pro to search only WCDMA (with *#2263#) and the phone connected to at&t's HSPA+ 42.2 Mbsp "4G" network (confirmed with Network Signal Info Pro app).
Of course when I was with at&t I was getting megabits per second speed down and up in NE WI.
Performed a speed test and discovered the data speed is SERIOUSLY throttled. I was getting only "GPRS" speeds (about 50k down and up), latency was not bad though (175 ms).
Two Thumbs Up T-Mobile!!!!
Unlimited Data Now Most Expensive In Industry
Sprint is only $20 for unlimited data on its Framily plans. Both carriers offer no contract, both offer device financing, and while Sprint's $20 for unlimited data includes only one annual upgrade for a device, it beats T-Mobile, which would be $30 for the same unlimited data plus $10 for JUMP for a total of $40. Even if you included $11 device insurance on the $20 Sprint plan, you're saving $9 per month. Almost $110 per year.
Not saying Sprint is faster or better, but their pricing scheme is by far better than T-Mobile right now.

The power user...
1. It's high speed, I don't hear very good things from Sprint's customers when it comes to speed.
2. Mobile hotspot is included at no extra cost.
