T-Mobiles data plans start as low as $19.99/mo for 500MB of data with .10-per-MB overages to $74.99 for 10GB of data with .02-per-MB overages.


Press Release:

Bellevue, Wash. — Jun. 27, 2012 - T-Mobile USA, Inc. today introduced two suites of mobile broadband data plans to address the growing use of mobile broadband devices (tablets, laptop sticks and mobile hotspots) and the increasing demand for data among business customers. T-Mobile’s new 500MB, 2GB, 5GB and 10GB overage-free and 500MB, 2GB, 5GB and 10GB high-speed data plans address the desire of customers to select the plan that best serves their business priority – whether that is predictable monthly billing or access to high-speed data for a reasonable cost. Pricing begins as low as $19.99 per month for 500MB on the high-speed data plan. This is an attractive entry point for low-volume data users and in line with T-Mobile’s strategy to provide disruptive pricing for business customers.

For many businesses, predictable monthly costs are paramount. T-Mobile’s new overage-free data plans allow businesses to control the expense of monthly data usage with plans that slow data transmission speeds when users have used their data allotments instead of incurring overage charges. However, if maintaining the fastest possible data speeds available on T-Mobile’s network is the priority, the new high-speed data plans do not slow speeds as the allotment is reached, but instead apply overage charges ranging from $0.02 to $0.10 per MB depending on the data allotment selected.

“Over the past five years, the amount of data crossing T-Mobile’s network has grown by 146 times. This growth in data usage and the associated cost is top of mind for our business customers – from small businesses through large multinational corporations,” said Frank Sickinger, vice president of business sales at T-Mobile. “In combination with our portfolio of compelling 4G mobile broadband devices, the availability of our new overage-free and high-speed data plans empowers our customers to not only choose the right amount of data, but, more importantly, choose a plan that best addresses their business priorities.”

When connected to T-Mobile’s fast and dependable nationwide 4G network, T-Mobile’s portfolio of  4G mobile broadband devices provide business customers with fast access to the Web, e-mail, and other corporate assets and productivity tools while on the go. T-Mobile offers compelling 4G-capable tablets, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 10.1, the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 7.0 Plus and the T-Mobile® SpringBoard™ with Google™. The company also offers a selection of Hotspot devices and laptop sticks, including the T-Mobile® Sonic™ 4G Mobile Hotspot, the T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot and the HSPA+ 42-enabled Rocket™ 3.0 USB Laptop Stick.
