Here it comes: Get ready for the death of unlimited mobile data plans

Parting is such sweet sorrow, and I remember how mixed my emotions were when I finally dumped my unlimited data plan on my personal wireless account and switched to one of AT&T’s mobile share plans. I had held onto my old plan for as long as I could in anticipation of the rise of data-hungry mobile services, but the cost benefit of switching and the knowledge that I was just going to be throttled anyway made it silly to hold on any longer.

While Verizon and AT&T built up huge smartphone customer bases in part by luring subscribers in with unlimited data and then practically forcing them onto capped plans, there are still two major U.S. carriers that offer limitless cellular data… for now. More →

T-Mobile’s next uncarrier move is another game-changer

You’re probably used to seeing free phone offers all the time from wireless carriers, and by now you know how it works. You have to sign a contract with a mobile operator for a certain period of time, during which the cost of the phone will be baked into your wireless service plan.

But what if that wasn’t the case anymore? What if free phones were also offered alongside prepaid service plans? It looks like this intriguing plan might end up being T-Mobile’s next “uncarrier” initiative. More →

T-Mobile will slow down your ‘unlimited’ LTE data in some circumstances – here are the details

Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen both AT&T and Verizon get into hot water for slowing down customers’ data speeds despite the fact that they had signed up for “unlimited” data plans. However, it looks like T-Mobile is now also slowing down its own customers who have “unlimited” LTE data plans in some situations, although the carrier insists that what it’s doing is different from straight-up throttling.

T-Mobile’s incredible recent success comes with one major asterisk

There is no doubt that T-Mobile has had an incredible run of success over the last year and a half. However, there’s some real question about who T-Mobile’s success has been hurting the most — for while the “Uncarrier” loves to portray itself as the scourge of Verizon and AT&T, those two mega-carriers have not been losing subscribers or hemorrhaging money. Instead, it seems that T-Mobile’s gains have come at the expense of smaller prepaid wireless carriers. More →
