What was once a rumor is now fact. T-Mobile will have two new “unlimited” plans available on April 13. These plans are for single-lines only on either a two-year contract, or no contract at all. Let’s take a look at both plans shall we?

The first Even More plan is $79.99 a month on a two-year contract. It has unlimited minutes, messaging and data. The unlimited data claim can be taken with a pinch of salt. After the first 2GB of data is used, speeds will be throttled for the rest of the billing cycle.

In the words of T-Mobile:

After 2GB, there will be a continued connection to the Web, but data speeds will be reduced for the remainder of that bill cycle.

2GB of mobile data is more than most will use. T-Mobile estimates customers use about 1GB of data each month. As time goes on, and apps become more data hungry, it’ll be more difficult to keep speeds from being reduced.

The Even More Plus unlimited plan does not require a contract. It will cost $59.99 a month. However, non-contract plans can’t get subsidized prices for phones.

As a side note, I’d like to point out the irony of T-Mobile claiming its unlimited plans can save customers more money than AT&T. It’s the fear of many that if AT&T takes over, T-Mobile’s low prices will be the first thing to go.
