A couple years the trend was for cell providers to try to lure you over to their side with unlimited data. The unlimited data dried up a while ago but now companies like Sprint and T-Mobile are bringing it back in an attempt to get your to switch to them. I don't think anyone will argue that unlimited data isn't a bad thing, although the price isn't great if you use a bunch of data chances are good it will be around the same (if not less) than what you are paying now. CNET has the full story.
T-Mobile is eliminating data plans for new customers -- and for current ones who opt in.
The company is getting rid of all its wireless data plans and instead offering new customers one unlimited plan, T-Mobile said Thursday. Under the new plan, called T-Mobile One, everyone will get unlimited talk, text and high-speed 4G LTE data.
The company has also changed prices for unlimited. The first line will be $70 a month, the second line will cost $50 a month and additional lines will be $20 a month for up to eight lines with auto-pay turned on. The price is $5 more a month without auto-pay. For a family of four, the new plan will cost $40 a month per person.
