T-Mobile is making big changes to its unlimited data plan

Written by |

New and existing T-Mobile customers are going to be affected by changes to the wireless provider’s unlimited data plan.

The new plan starts June 2 and will be called Magenta. It replaces the T-Mobile One plan. Aside from the new name, here’s how Magenta is different from T-Mobile One…

T-Mobile introduces new unlimited data plan

  1. Mobile hotspot: Magenta adds 3GB of high-speed smartphone hotspot per line before being slowed to unlimited 3G tethering. T-Mobile One had no LTE hotspot.
  2. Netflix on Us benefit: Magenta includes Netflix Basic for families, not Netflix Standard. This comes after Netflix raised prices earlier this year. Starting in July, existing T-Mobile One customers with the Standard plan can pay $2 a month to keep it. To avoid paying extra, they can either turn off Netflix on Us or change to Magenta.

The price of T-Mobile’s unlimited plan is staying the same. Magenta starts at $70 per month for a single line. Taxes and fees are included.

“You’ll still get unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE smartphone data and all the Un-carrier benefits like taxes and fees included, weekly discounts and free stuff from T-Mobile Tuesdays, free data and texting in 210+ countries and destinations, an hour of Gogo inflight Wi-Fi and unlimited texting all flight long on domestic flights, and more,” T-Mobile said in a news release.

T-Mobile also announced that it will begin matching or beating discounts from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. Examples include corporate, affiliate, military or senior service discounts. Learn more here.
