Leaked internal screenshot sheds credibility to T-Mobile's new 2GB data plan
It shouldn’t be long now before T-Mobile customers will have the opportunity of choosing yet another data plan offering that might be better suited for their usage. Yesterday, we reported about the possibility of Big Magenta unveiling a new data plan offering to its arsenal, but now we’re getting something that concretely justifies the news.

Taking a quick peek at the leaked screenshot below, it provides the same set of details that clarifies T-Mobile’s upcoming plan. Specifically, the carrier is aiming to unveil a new 2GB data plan for only $39.99 per month, which also drops down to $31.99 if it’s combined with an existing voice plan. Moreover, they’re also going to axe the overage plan associated with the $29.99 per month 200MB plan – thus embracing throttled speeds instead.

So when can you expect to see this? Based on the grainy looking image, it mentions the date of April 28th, but the only thing left to complete it all is an official word from T-Mobile at this point

This is why i love T-Mobile always trying to improve their services not like other providers. I hope the deal with At&t fails.

Are you deluded?
It's still throttling speeds and lying to people saying it is unlimited.

At least you can still use it after 2GB unlike At&t which stops at 2GB plus!!! the only other company able to match T-Mobiles pricing is Verizon BUT!!! they are going to stop the Unlimited Data plan and cap it. (Please dont mention sprint, its the slowest of all networks)

AT&T doesn't cap the data at 2GB; they charge $10 for each GB over, so if you wanted to use 12GB in one month (why you would do so without wifi, I don't know), you'd be looking at having paid $125 for data that month. Tada. Granted they tend to send a warning message and may eventually turn off the data if it gets too high before they get the account holder's permission to get it going again, but you could use as much data as you wanted, in theory

kiki..you need to look up the definitions of unlimited and throttled.. they can exist together

unlimited means.. NO LIMIT.. wow. they never said unlimited at full speed forever.

Throttled means.. to slow down.. you can still have an unlimted connection and have it slowed down.. because, ya know.. its still working without giving you overages or shutting off.

Unknown person above. You have to be crazy to think that this is good. paying $40 bucks a month for 2gb of data!? thats not unlimited and throttling speeds is screwed up as well. Their not improving. There finding more ways to make you pay more for internet access.

AT&T offers 2GB of data usage for $25 without slowing down your data speeds after you've used it all, instead they charge an additional $10 for every GB used after, which is pretty good considering AT&T sends you a text notifying you of your data usage. I don't know how anybody could think 2GB of data from T-Mobile at $39.99 is a great deal, considering it's one of the bottom carriers while AT&T and Verizon remain at the top with the fastest mobile internet and best coverage. I do hope AT&T acquires T-Mobile, others may consider it bad for competition, but me being an AT&T customer, I would love to get more coverage and faster data speeds in addition to an already great network...at least in my area :)

because for existing Tmo customers its actually 30 bux a month for 2 gigs. it even does the math for you in the article.

Im glad you think getting charged 10 bux a gig is a better deal than just getting slowed down and not charged anything extra.. but others would rather save the money..

oh yea. and Tmobiles network goes up to 42mb/s. That would be faster than EVERY other carrier in the US, even VZW's LTE.

This isn't a good thing..i'm sure they are slowly changing data plans to eventually merge with att once that all goes through.

A lot of people are dumb here. throttled means it will slow down but not stop, capped means it will stop unless you want to pay more. Bottom like, I can go to 5gb with t-mobile without paying an extra $30 after 2gb (too 5gb) like ATT. So there solved. Everyone shut up.
