T-Mobile adds 1.5GB, 5GB prepaid mobile broadband options

updated 01:08 pm EDT, Thu May 17, 2012

Per-GB price reduced

T-Mobile has announced that it is changing its prepaid mobile broadband offerings to include several additional data caps and a new pricing structure. The one-week pass has jumped from $10 to $15, however customers will be able to utilize 300MB of data instead of 100MB for the seven-day span.

For customers interested in purchasing month-by-month prepaid broadband, current options are limited to $30 for 1GB of data or $50 for 3GB of usage. Going forward, the entry point will provide 1.5GB of data for $25. A midrange option places a 3.5GB cap for $35, while $50 now fetches 5GB of usage.

The revisions arrive approximately 18 months after the company first added data options to its prepaid plans, when $50 only provided 1GB of usage for the entire month. The new prices are now closer to T-Mobile's competitors, as Verizon already offers a 2GB allowance for $30 or 5GB of data for $50.

T-Mobile suggests the new data options are set to launch on Sunday, replacing the existing options. The new plans will be available for 3G/4G hotspots and USB modems, such as the Rocket 3.0, along with the Galaxy Tab-series and SpringBoard tablets.
