T-Mobile officially launches new Unlimited Nationwide 4G plan
From the iconic Sidekick® to industry’s only national Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan, T-Mobile continues to reinvent the mobile experience
Bellevue, Wash. — Sep. 5, 2012 2012-09-05 10:57:18
T-Mobile USA, Inc. marked the 10th anniversary of its T-Mobile brand in the United States by making its new Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan available in stores today. The plan underscores T-Mobile’s longstanding focus on delivering customer value and service excellence through constant innovation.
“Since our inception, we’ve always strived to shake up the industry with plans, network capabilities, and innovative products and services for our customers,” said Brad Duea, senior vice president, product management, T-Mobile USA. “Today’s release of our Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan continues our tradition of bold moves that enhance the customer experience and change the way wireless is done.”
T-Mobile USA established its nationwide brand in September 2002 and has been quietly innovating ever since, beginning with Sidekick®, the first all-in-one wireless device with an unlimited data plan for consumers. The company is now one of the largest employers and best-kept secrets in the Seattle area, built on a legacy of wireless industry firsts, including these:
First Personal Coverage Check (2005) – Provided consumers with transparent view of network coverage where they live and work
First Wi-Fi Calling Service in U.S. (2007) – Allowed voice calling over Wi-Fi
First Android phone – T-Mobile G1™ with Google™ (2008) – Kicked off wave of subsequent Android offerings
First U.S. carrier to launch an HSPA+ network (2009) – Today, T-Mobile’s fast and dependable nationwide 4G network is available in 229 markets, reaching well over 220 million people
First to break from Subsidy Model (2009) – T-Mobile’s Even More plans and later Value Plans allow customers to pay for their devices over time or to bring their own devices to T-Mobile
Today marks another first: T-Mobile becomes the only carrier with a nationwide 4G network to offer unlimited nationwide 4G data. Featuring no data caps, no speed limits and no overages, as well as fast, dependable nationwide 4G coverage, T-Mobile’s new Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan offers the ultimate worry-free experience for data-hungry smartphone customers. The Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan is available at T-Mobile retail stores, on http://www.T-Mobile.com/unlimited-data-plan, and through select dealers and national retail stores.
To help customers quickly take full advantage of all the cool things smartphones can do — without limits or overages — T-Mobile customers who activate a new two-year contract on an Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan will be able to benefit from a sale on select 4G smartphones, including the HTC One S with $0.00 down payment, after $50 mail-in rebate card.1

This plan is cheaper than Sprint's unlimited everything plan and T-Mobile has a faster network so yes they should gain customers.

Yes it will I don't understand why t-mobile is the fourth largest network when it comes to speed t-mobile is why better in more places not just two or three major cities. Hopefully t-mobile gets major credits on it's new unlimited 4G plan. I think we will be alright t-mobile but can't wait for 4G LTE.

Sprint unlimited everything is 99.99 for basic talk text web phones. If you want a smartphone with sprint it will be a additional $10 for unlimited smartphone data. Tmobile is much more cheaper. Also in Hawaii T-mobile has better coverage than sprint. imo

Great move Tmobile people with the Galaxy S3 will be enjoying those devices even more. Plus with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on the way Tmobile customers will be extremely happy soon. Tmobile is the BEST place it's HSPA PLUS 42MPS network simply s**ts all over Verizon and At&t.. I am a proud Tmobile customers and Galaxy S3 owner.

This is a great move for T-Mobile because now they are directly competing with Sprint and are still the most inexpensive one of the big four carriers plus with LTE on the way you can't beat them.
