T-Mobile Announces 2GB Mobile Broadband Plan

While we had plenty of indication this would see a formal announcement today, T-Mobile has gone and made it official. Announcing via Twitter the addition of the $39.99 2GB Mobile Broadband plan to their data lineup. As a reminder the $39.99 plan receives an additional 20% off is added to an existing voice account. T-Mobile links to their Mobile Broadband page via Twitter but as of this writing, the $39.99 plan isn’t listed yet.

    Good thing I jumped at their 79.99 plan with unlimited talk text and 2gb data, 39 for 2gb is a bit much.

    • I’m glad there weren’t very many comments about the cell phone web plan, seeing as how this is for mobile broadband, meaning things that are connected to your computer. I think the previous commenters need to be more active with reading before posting, however, it was stopped short @ around 9 or 10 idiots.

    Gee, my current unlimited data plan with T-Mobile is $25 per month. My wife’s Virgin Mobile plan is 300 minutes AND unlimited text/data for $25 per month. There’s no way I’m paying $40/month for only 2GB through T-Mobile.

  • As the posters before me noted, I am also glad I have an older plan with the $30.00 for 5gb limit, imho these latest data plans seem to be worse then the ones before.

      Ahh, the wisdom of tmo news commentators. Go over those 2 GB on AT&T and you will find out how cheap it is. Or try tethering and AT&T will slap you with another $20 month. And what are you doing here anyway, find a AT&T site and post there.

          Then why are you bitching about ATT? Maybe you not the smart one here since you done understand what this plan is about?

        “led painted”

        I wish I had LED painted toys when I was growing up. I just had boring GI Joes and Micro Machines that didn’t even light up…

  • That is the most ridiculous pricing strategy ever. MORE money for LESS data.Yeah, that makes sense….

      This is not a data plan on the smart phone, this is for webconnect. You really are a babydoll.

  • is this 4g/3g or just 3g?

  • smylax

    You guys are idiots. This isn’t a data feature. This is a mobile broadband plan for tablets, websticks, etc not a feature for smartphones….

    • Iqgirl

      Wow thank you smylax

  • 2GB is an insult

    Man these prices really suck, I mean I know its mobile and not home internet but damn. The past plan for 5GB with a voice plan is ALREADY $39?? If you don’t have a voice plan then its $49, I would pay the extra $10 for 3 more GB if I was a customer. I’m starting to feel the slow creep of At&t rubbing off on good ole Magenta. I work for T-mobile and these prices are not competitive what-so-ever.

    Data customers only (No Voice Plan):

    T-mobile 4G HSPA+ 2GB –> $39.99 vs Verizon 4G LTE 3GB –> $35.00

    T-Mobile 4G HSPA+ 5GB –> $49.99 vs Verizon 4G LTE 5GB –> $50.00

    T-Mobile 4G HSPA+ 10GB -> $ 84.99 vs Verizon 4G LTE 10GB -> $80.00

    There is NOTHING competitive about T-Mobiles prices for DATA and I have know idea how they expect for reps to sell data that is slower and in less coverage areas for the same or more expensive pricing? I know Verizon has $10 overage charges per GB over but I would take that over throttled speed any day, hell that’s why they have built in usage meters. I can’t be the only one that feels this way?

      You’re right- the plans aren’t super competitive, but t-mobile is clearly aiming at their current customer base for their mobile broadband market. That is why they give a SIGNIFICANT 20% discount to voice customers.

      T-mobile 4G HSPA+ 2GB –> $32.99 vs Verizon 4G LTE 3GB –> $35.00— still not good

      T-Mobile 4G HSPA+ 5GB –> $39.99 vs Verizon 4G LTE 5GB –> $50.00— very competitive

      T-Mobile 4G HSPA+ 10GB -> $ 68.00 vs Verizon 4G LTE 10GB -> $80.00– very competitive

      Verizon’s LTE footprint is not very spread out nationwide so far- and I wouldn’t put it past big red to jack up their rates with a 4G premium sometime in the future- and you can bet magenta will find a way to bring theirs down.

      Actually they aren’t half bad, from what I understand. They have hidden Free unlimited 3G. ┬áthe limit is only on 4G speeds. 3G speeds on t-mobile can be up to 7mbps, unlikely 1mbps more likely, and 4G is only 7-21 mbps. I haven’t tested mobile broadband out, but from what i see it’s not half bad. I am tempted to drop my 12mbps 60$ per month Cable internet to get this. They also have a 200MB 4G unlimited 3G for 29 per month

    The price is simply stupid especially for tablet users:
    AT&T: $25 for 2GB (zero contact if you bring in your own device).
    T-Mobile: $40 for 2GB.
    Shame on you, T-Mobile.
