T-Mobile extends its barely-useable free roaming data to more countries

July 17th, 2018

T-Mobile announced today that it’s extending Simple Global, its free roaming service, to nearly every country in the world. The feature, which is available to everyone on T-Mobile’s One plan and some customers on older plans, includes 2G-speed data in 210 countries for no extra cost. Although some free data is certainly better than no …

Xfinity Mobile: Best unlimited data plan

Comcast’s Xfinity Mobile is now throttling video and mobile hotspots

July 2nd, 2018

Good things never last, and that doubly goes for unlimited data plans. Xfinity Mobile, Comcast’s wireless reseller that used to offer one of the best unlimited plans on the market, just sent an email to customers warning them about upcoming changes to the plan. As you might expect, these changes are not good. Two features …

Best Unlimited data plan 2018 T-Mobile vs AT&T

T-Mobile is trolling AT&T with a $900 deal for switchers

June 15th, 2018

For T-Mobile CEO John Legere, poking fun at Verizon and AT&T is seemingly part of his job description. Whether he’s picking up their disgruntled customers on Twitter or coming up with Trumpian nicknames, respect for the competition certainly isn’t a maxim at T-Mobile HQ. The company’s latest stunt actually puts money behind Legere’s Twitter account, …

Study shows T-Mobile customers use the most data of any network

January 16th, 2018

T-Mobile has long said that it has the only network “built for unlimited.” That might be a bunch of marketing bluster — the jury is still out on which network is the “best” — but a new set of data from Strategy Analytics does show that network aside, T-Mobile’s customers do seem like the most …

Best Unlimited Plan 2017

4 unlimited lines for $100 is the best wireless deal of 2017

October 24th, 2017

The year of our lord 2017 still has a few more months to drag out, but I seriously doubt any carrier is going to take the remaining 68 days to beat MetroPCS’s new deal. For $100, the prepaid carrier is offering four lines of unlimited data on T-Mobile’s surprisingly fast LTE network. Now, I know …

T-Mobile unlimited plan data limit 2017

T-Mobile is raising its throttling threshold to a massive 50GB

September 19th, 2017

T-Mobile just published a blog post announcing changes to its Unlimited plan, and for once, they’re actually good. The prioritization threshold — the amount of data you can use each month before being potentially throttled — is being raised from 32GB to 50GB. That’s double the limit Verizon and AT&T enforce on their customers, and …

Why did Verizon kill the Unlimited plan that everyone loved?

August 22nd, 2017

For the last six months, Verizon was doing well. It introduced an excellent Unlimited data plan with minimal restrictions and an affordable price, and subscribers fell over themselves to sign up. Well, that’s all out the window. This morning, Verizon made some significant changes to its Unlimited plan that makes it more expensive and worse, …

AT&T Unlimited Plan hotspot details

AT&T’s new ‘unlimited’ plan sucks

February 17th, 2017

As of this morning, all four major wireless carriers offer data plans described as “unlimited” to all their customers. But while I’m reluctantly willing to describe the Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint plans as unlimited (despite some restrictions), AT&T’s plan could better be described as a “22GB data plan but you can’t actually use that data …

Sprint's Unlimited Plan

Sprint proves it doesn’t understand what ‘unlimited’ means

August 26th, 2016

Sprint and T-Mobile both recently released unlimited data plans that aren’t actually unlimited — you can use a whole bunch of data, but you are limited to streaming SD-quality video and slow speeds for gaming. As part of a new plan that Sprint is offering you can now pay $20 a month more to stream …
