T-Mobile Intros 10GB Data Plan with No Overage Fees

Why T-Mobile isn't on top of a mountain shouting at the top of its lungs, we don't know, but the company should be. What for? Well, T-Mobile just launched its new 10GB Web Access + Unlimited T-Mobile HotSpot plan, which in and of itself doesn't sound like anything special. But here's the kicker -- there aren't any overage fees, even if you go over your 10GB monthly allotment! How's that again?


Okay, if we must...

There's a catch, of course, but it's really more of a compromise. Should you go over your 10GB limit, T-Mobile won't cut you off or hit you with additional charges that could lead up to bill shock. Instead, the wireless carrier will throttle back your connection until your next billing cycle begins. Naturally we'd prefer unlimited, unfettered access, but if there's going to be a cap, we think this is the best way of going about it.

The plan runs $85/month and is available now.

So more money and worse features. Still no one can catch up to Sprint.

Sprint only offers the truly unlimited on their phone but not on their 4g/3g usb air cards. You may get unlimited with 4G coverage, but 3G is still limited to 5gig and with the scarcity of 4G availability if your city dont have it you only got 5gigs before you get charged a nickle a mb. Even Virgin mobile who has "unlimited" air card plans throttle you after you get over 2.5gb in a monthly cycle.

These wireless companies need to stop this limiting and just build a robust enough network backbone and infrastructure capable of handling the demand for on the go internet. Seriously wireless broadband is a very cheap option for people in rural area's for home broadband when their phone companies dont offer DSL, there is no cable and the only alternatives are point to point wireless or satellite which have hefty installation fees/contracts that make wireless broadband very attractive. The federal government is giving away billions for rural internet development so why are wireless carriers not jumping on this? Free money to upgrade or build new towers, hire new workers in this desperate economy, and giving consumers something they crave access to internet anywhere. Seems like a win win to me, now if they would only get rid of the stupid data caps.

There is no overage on 3G with a phone. The only cap on the phone in 3G is 5GB of tethering a month.

Of course, this talking about mobile internet. Drago, I life in a 4G city (Tampa Metro) with lots of 4G all around even after I leave the city.
