T-Mobile simplifies its Pay as You Go plans, adds optional LTE data
The Un-carrier keeps going with its user-conscious efforts and changes. While it was recently proclaimed number one in the US prepaid market
, T-Mobile now looks to further simplify its Pay as You Go plans. Come the 17th of August, T-Mo's new prepaid option will cost a $0.10 flat rate for a minute of talk time or single text message. A simplified rate should make it easier for users to pre-plan on how much they want to charge their card for, T-Mobile says. Also, that would make Pay as You Go cheaper for those customers, who used to buy the smallest refills, as their cost used to amount to around $0.30 per minute.
In order to keep an account active, a user would have to pay a $3 monthly minimum, which includes 30 minutes of talk time or 30 text messages. Just as before, there are no deposits and no contracts to sign.
Another change is the ability to take advantage of T-Mobile's high-speed 4G LTE data connection. Pre-paid users will be able to get data access for 1 day (up to 500 MB) or 7 days (up to 1 GB), at the cost of $5 or $10, respectively.
