T-Mobile prepaid data to start at 10USD a week

A source has leaked an internal training document for T-Mobile employees detailing the company's prepaid broadband access plans. According to the Engadget document, the plans will be dubbed "T-Mobile Passes." Pricing will start at $10 for one week's access or 100MB of data, whichever comes first. Other options include $30 for 300MB or one month's access, and $50 for one month or 1GB of data. The leaked training document indicates that all mobile broadband products will be eligible for the prepaid plans, including a new Jet USB modem and a new SIM card that will be available with the prepaid option.

By way of comparison, the mobile data rate for T-Mobile's annual contracts is $39 per month for up to 5GB of data. T-Mobile recently extended its HSPA+ 3G service to several major cities. T-Mobile's HSPA+ 3G service has the fastest theoretical transfer speed available from any of the major carriers.

T-Mobile has yet to announce the prepaid data plans, but the existence of the training document suggests an announcement may be forthcoming at the CTIA show starting today.
