To properly complement its rather successful Simple Choice postpaid plans, T-Mobile has today unveiled its new Simply Prepaid offer.
The three plans that make it up are quite similar to the carrier’s old Simple Choice Prepaid options, but they’re thankfully cheaper now.
For $ 40 each month, you’ll get unlimited talk and text, and 1GB of high-speed data. $ 50 nets you 3GB, and for $ 60 you get 5GB of data, while the other unlimited perks stay the same.
You do get access to 4G LTE with Simply Prepaid, but the pretty big caveat is that by “high-speed data” T-Mobile means 8Mbps. That’s the maximum you’ll ever reach with these plans. And when you go over your data cap, the speed will fall down to 128kbps, which really won’t be useful for much.
With Simply Prepaid, you also get access to such services as Wi-Fi calling, in-flight texting, and visual voicemail. The new plans will become available from T-Mobile on January 25.
