T-Mobile to allow existing Simple Starter subscribers to get a total of 2GB of LTE data for $5 more
Probably in order to keep up with its competitor, T-Mobile just announced a new option for its entry-level Simple Starter plan, which got launched earlier this year. Initially, it allowed the clients of the fourth largest carrier in the USA to benefit from unlimited talk and text, as well as some 500MB of LTE data for $40 a month.
Well, from September 3 onwards, all those customers who decided to jump on the bandwagon will be able to get four times as much data – 2GB – for $5 more each month. As per the original terms of Simple Starters, T-Mobile won't require users to sign an annual contract. Legere also compared T-Mobile's new offer to the similar one of its rivals and claimed that for smaller amounts of additional data Verizon will charge its subscribers $15 more.
Are you a Simple Starter user? Is T-Mobile's new offer appealing to you? Tell us below!

$45/month for 2.5GB? Not bad, T-Mo.. not bad.

Certainly a move in the right direction and not bad.
That said, it's still not quite as cheap as ATT. For $66/mo, I get "unlimited" data and a subsidy. Put in T-Mobile terms, that works out to about $46/month as the T-Mobile plan comes without a subsidy. But I get "unlimited" data vs. 2.5GB and a network that, at least for today, is clearly superior to T-Mobile's.

Or you know. If you don't do voice call much. Do the T-mobile $30 unlimited text + data plan with 100 minute call? every minute after that is just $0.1

That particular T-Mobile plan is a very good value. I think it is 5GB data for $30.
If I were going to switch from ATT, that would be one of my top choices. Hopefully T-Mobile can really expand their network over the next year or two.

Depends on what you need. It's nice that they give their customers the choice.

It is all of usa, it wont show in your account, the servers they use are whitelisted and don't get capped when your phone connects to it.

Anyways tmobile needs more work on their coverage before I would give them a second thought, nor would I recommend them to anyone

Tmo doesnt throttle normal users gtfo with that bullcrap

Disguising speed tests? Nah. What happens is the public uses their high speed up, then gets mad when it gets reduced. They except them mainly for their techs. Because they get calls daily for slow speed and they can say they are capped. And yet show them that the network is performing fine by letting them speed test.

They don't disguise. Speedtests aren't throttled because speedtests are there to show network capability. It's not like you're lied to and told you have unlimited data. You sign up knowing how much data you get at full speed. Period.
