T-Mobile will present a plan later this week that will remove the limitation almost entirely. It’s new Magenta Max the plan includes unlimited premium data and unlimited 4K video streaming. It also comes with 40GB of high-speed data connection (T-Mobile will speed up your devices to 3G speeds once you exceed this limit), in addition to perks like Gogo’s free in-flight Wi-Fi and international roaming in 210 countries.
All so-called “unlimited” plans in the United States (and some other parts of the world) currently strangle customers after reviewing their monthly data allowance. T-Mobile says it won’t do this with Magenta Max, whether you use the plan to access a 5G or LTE connection to its network. The company says it is rolling out its plan to “show what a really powerful 5G network can do for consumers.”
Magenta Max will replace the carrier’s existing Magneta Plus plan on February 24. For a limited time, T-Mobile says you can get the plan for $ 47 a month – but that’s if you already have three lines on your account and take advantage of its auto-pay promotion. Single line customers can expect to pay $ 85 per month with auto pay. Along with the plan, the carrier is introducing a promotion for those who wish to change. If you come with your own device to the operator, it will carry your phone number for free. Additionally, current AT&T and Verizon (Engadget’s parent company) customers can get up to $ 650 in the form of a prepaid card when they switch.
Regular Magenta customers can expect something new too. Plan now includes 100GB of premium data, up from 50GB since 2017. It now also includes 5 GB of high-speed tethering data, up from the 3 GB previously provided.
