Update: A previous version of this article stated T-Mobile was doing away with its unlimited LTE prepaid plan. It’s not. The carrier will still offer that plan in addition to its new Simply Prepaid plans.
T-Mobile today announced Simply Prepaid, a new trio of prepaid plans that undercut its existing prepaid plans by $10 each.
All prepaid plans still include unlimited talk, text and data but different LTE bucket amounts now start at $40 for 1GB, $50 for 3GB and $60 for 5GB. After subscribers use up their high-speed data allowance, T-Mobile will throttle them back to 2G speeds, or 128 Kbps. The carrier won’t allow tethering with the new plans.
The new plans will be available starting Jan. 25.
T-Mobile’s new plan prices still fall short of the prepaid plans from Sprint, which start at $35 for 1GB of high-speed data and top out at $55 for 6GB. Sprint prepaid brand Boost Mobile offers 10GB of high-speed data for $55 per month.
