T-Mobile ends cheaper plans and imposes new limits on unlimited data

The $70 unlimited “T-Mobile One” plan caps hotspot usage to 2G speeds, which T-Mobile defines as up to 128kbps. Normal-speed mobile hotspot usage will cost $15 for each 5GB allotment. The new unlimited plan also throttles video to 480p, similar to the carrier’s Binge On promotion that throttles video and exempts it from data caps. On the new unlimited plan, customers who want HD video must pay an extra $25 a month per line. The unlimited plan also throttles customers who use more than 26GB a month if they are connected to a congested cell tower. – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica http://ift.tt/2b67IST
