You can now get T-Mobile One with unlimited HD video streaming and 10GB of high-speed hotspot data
Last week, Verizon announced that it would officially be making the switch to unlimited data. This move came as somewhat of a surprise considering the carrier's recent push for its new 5GB data plan for $55/month, but nonetheless, the company has followed suite with T-Mobile and Sprint to cut limits on mobile data access. T-Mobile's CEO John Legere took to Twitter shortly following this announcement to reveal some two major upgrades to the T-Mobile One unlimited plan, and those two updates are now in full effect.

T-Mobile One is a really solid plan, but up until now it's been faced with a couple major drawbacks - unlimited video streaming limited to just 480p and mobile hotspot data capped at 3G speeds. However, those two pain points are now no more. Starting yesterday (February 17), T-Mobile One is now updated with unlimited HD video streaming and 10GB of high-speed hotspot data access before it's throttled to 3G once more. There's currently no word as to the exact quality of these HD streams, but our guess is that it's 720p.


In addition to these two big additions, T-Mobile One now also includes roaming data speeds of 256 Kbs in more than 140 countries. That's still incredibly slow compared to what 4G LTE is capable of, but it's a big increase over the 128 Kbs rate that was previously being offered.

Along with these new components of T-Mobile One, you can also now score two lines on the plan for just $100/month with all taxes and regulatory fees included in that price. There's no word as to how long this deal will last, but if you've been eyeing T-Mobile One for two people but haven't jumped the gun yet, now looks like a better time than ever to do so.

Why do you guys keep saying it's limited to 720p for their hd video? Tmobile or Verizon never said this and actually they have both stated it's native hd. Get your facts straight before you write something. Also you already posted an article like 3 days ago about the new T-Mobile one plan everyone already knows about it.

720p is technically HD, whereas 1080p is "Full HD". Very confusing, especially when the carriers aren't saying exactly what the limit is

Currently on T-Mobile's Simple Choice, I got 4 lines for $120 and 10GB on each. They offered me unlimited data until 02/2019 for all my lines plus the ones that may add in the near future.

Switched from my Simple choice plan last night. Needed more high-speed tethering and got 10gb instead of 7 that I did have, plus Ia slightly less expensive

Switched from T-Mobile to Verizon. I had 4 lines with unlimited everything plus 7gb hotspot for $100 plus taxes. Paying Verizon now $180 plus taxes on their new unlimited plan. Almost double but worth it. Much better coverage. Also, the call quality over LTE is better on Verizon. Happy I made the switch. I am a contractor and always on the road so having great and reliable coverage is more important than cost. Happy that Verizon brought unlimited* back.

I have to add that I still love T-Mobile and John Legere is the best CEO I have seen in a long time. Definitely know how to take change his company for the better and change the INDUSTRY as well. Gotta thank him for all the GOOD things happening to the wireless industry.

i have both tmobile personal phone and verizon work phone. And call quality on tmobile over LTE and hspa is better than verizons call quality over Lte. They both have their ups and downs. Tmobile also has faster Lte up to 120mbps . While verizon the Max i ever seen is 65. Verizon has better signal yes i can signal deep in buildings were tmobile gets nothing . But when they both have signal outside tmobile works much better voice is better and Lte faster. Like i said only place verizon wins is i get signal deep in buildings tmobile gets nothing , other than that the other one works better.
