Lower Simple Choice plans gain more data, new higher tier offered

T-Mobile in the United States has updated its Simple Choice price plans with a few changes. The amount of data available to customers on the carrier has both risen and fallen, depending on the tier of service, with all plans also gaining enhanced global data and text services in more countries, and the extra introduction of unlimited stateside international text messaging.

The basic $50 plan includes unlimited talk and text as normal, as well as unlimited 2G data. The amount of LTE data allocated has doubled from 500MB to 1GB per month, with those paying an extra $10 having a 3GB allocation instead of 2.5GB. These additions come at a cost, with customers currently paying $20 extra per month seeing their unlimited LTE data dropped down to a 5GB allocation, though the amount allowable for tethering has increased from 2.5GB to 5GB. A new tier costing $30 extra per month offers the unlimited LTE data, also with a 5GB tethering allocation.



All customers will be able to enjoy unlimited international texting from the US, instead of the previous per-message charge, while roamers will be able to unlimited data and texting in 122 countries, up from the current 115 locations.

The changes will come into affect from March 23rd, with most of the changes being applied to existing customer plans. Existing customers paying the $70 total monthly cost will continue to keep their unlimited data allocation instead of changing down to 5GB, though they will also not see the tethering changes.
