Data. It used to be unlimited, and now, it is so, very limited. T-Mobile is offering customers a way to break free of your data bonds, but, there are some costs. T-Mobile is actually one of the more progressive companies as far as data caps go, as they allow users to roll over unused data. They are updating their data plans, as announced on November 10th, with programs that have cool names such as “binge on,” “simple choice,” and “data stash.”
The biggest change is that all data plans will remain at the same price, but have their limits doubled. The 1G plan becomes 2G, 3G becomes 6G and so forth. Another change is that the data rollover plan, called Data Stash, used to allow unlimited data rollover. Now it will only allow up to 20G.
One thing that isn’t changing is the fact that once users have used their allotted data, T-Mobile throttles their speed to 2G levels, which is a big drag. However, due to T-Mobile’s new Binge On program, customers can watch video from any of 24 streaming services including Netflix with no penalty to their data plans. This is a pretty revolutionary stance. Video snobs may not be happy, though, because they will only be displaying video at 480p or less, which is fine, as it is DVD quality, but it’s really not the best. Those with retina display devices might not be satisfied. You know what they say, there’s no such thing as a free lunch!
There are no upcoming events.
