    That $19 plan for GSMT, "regular speeds" is EDGE? Or HSPA+

    "regular speeds" is 128Kbps - I believe it's throttled 3G.

    Regular speed on the GSMT $19.99 was 64kbps for me. Phone connects to HSPA+ but it's throttled.

    This was discussed somewhere on HoFo in June or July, if somebody feels like searching for the thread. I and others had a lot of contact with Red Pocket trying to get some questions answered, which I think most were pretty well answered. I don't know if it was a separate thread, so it's good to have one, but there was some good info in that discussion.

    Unless they increased the data speed, the older $20 plan was better since it was unlimited everything instead of just 300 mins.

    I don't believe they've ever offered a Tmobile plan with unlimited everything for $20. The only one they've had has always had 300 minutes/unlimited texts/unlimited data.

    I purchased the Tmo $20 plan last month and tried it in several devices. 64kbps consistent data rate.

    really? I could of swore it was unlimited talk and text with unlimited reduced speed for $20?
    Well either way I hope they offer better speed than 64kbps speed now that they have LTE.

    Yeah, it's pretty bad. Emails are fine. Web browsing is a pain - I forgot what we used to labor through on dial-up 15 years ago.

    The only compelling advantage I see is the free international calling. If you don't need that, there pricing isn't anything special. For example, they have unlimited V/T, 500MB data for $40. At Verizon it's $45. For 1GB, it $45 vs $50 at Verizon. For 3GB it's $60 vs $65. And Verizon has awesome coverage in a whole lot of the country.

    Not quite apples to apples. Web pages back then weren't as detailed as they are today. Even dial-up was bearable for most Web pages back then.

    $39 plan is now listed with 1gb before throttle, while the $49 plan is 2gb before throttle. Although website says that upgrade is a limited time offer, it is possible that the change will be the new amount in the near future.
