    T-Mobile just dropped a bomb.

    $70 for unlimited
    $50 for second line unlimited
    $20 for every additional line unlimited

    Vzw and attws, should watch out T-Mobile is only a year and half to two years of matching there coverage. My opinion.

    Get that fake unlimited **** outta here. Add all the extras to it and it's a higher priced plan than Tmo had before.

    Add $25/line forn HD videos and $15 just for high speed data on tablets. The costs add up really fast.

    And tethering is only allowed at 2g, right.

    Wow are you serious? If true, what a complete joke. This has to be net neutrality complaint worthy, right?

    I'm glad I have 2 lines for $100. If they ever force me off my plan, I'm gone.

    While I am not a fan of the new at&t or vzw plans (for my usage and # of lines), I find these TM plans even less compelling, especially 2G tethering (come on, at least give "3G" speeds).

    Most people do not need unlimited. I myself could probably do with less data than I currently have; there's no incentive for unlimited for many users. This is just a price increase.

    Sprint is responding with a $60 plan that is similar.

    Verizon Wireless: 2001-2003 & 2011-2013

    Correct, however you can buy high speed tethering for $15 for 5GB. So if you tether, this makes the new plans extremely expensive (and probably the point).

    Current T-Mobile unlimited single user plan: $95 unlimited high speed data + 14GB tethering + no restrictions on streaming at HD or above.
    New T-Mobile plan: $70 unlimited high speed data + $45 for 15GB tethering + $25 to stream HD video

    So it is now $140 for the same plan that is currently $95. That's a huge price increase.

    This is getting mixed reviews on the T-Mo forum. Some think it's a good thing. Some think charging extra for non-compressed video streaming is a violation of Net Neutrality. Some (myself included) think it's a really slick way to increase rates on new accounts, without having it sound like a rate increase. I don't know if I'd say that T-Mobile "dropped a bomb" or "laid and egg." Take your pick.

    My theory is that it's a way to increase ARPU by charging everyone for unlimited when most folks get along fine with a small data bucket combined with Data Stash (rollover) and zero-rating audio and video streaming. They are also cutting out full speed tethering, which has been a big benefit to many. They figured out that all this zero-rating was costing them too much and needed to bump the price for low-end data buckets.

    First of all, this is a giant price increase over the current 4 lines for $120/mo with 6GB of data plus Binge On!, which, lets face it, is Unlimited several times over unless you sit there and download giant files all day on your phone.

    Secondly, they are massively improving their coverage with B12 LTE, and filling in a lot of gaps in the network. However, they still have giant chunks missing. Like what the heck happened to Vermont and Maine?

    All I need AT&T to do is add some high speed tethering to their Unlimited Plan and I'll be with them (probably) forever.

    Please. If anything, this change actually makes AT&T and Verizon look like better options.
