Yesterday we posted a leaked document revealing T-Mobile’s plans to begin charging overages on its most popular 200MB data plan. Today, AllThingsD was able to confirm that information but with slightly higher charges than what was originally leaked. T-Mobile released this statement,
“Customers will incur overages of $0.10 per MB when they exceed 200MB of data ($10 for 10MB) up to a maximum monthly payment of $40 with Value plans or $45 with Classic plans for data including the 200 MB add-on fee.”
Originally, T-Mobile customers would only have their data throttled (decreased download speeds) once they reached their 200MB limit with no extra charges but now, T-Mobile will alert customers when they reach around 90% of their data limit as to avoid overages or upgrade to a higher plan. If you’re currently on a 200MB unlimited plan, you will be able to keep it as long as you don’t make any changes to your plan. T-Mobile’s new limited 200MB data plan will officially go into effect August 14th.
OUCH…..I hate being raped.
Verizon 3g unlimited are much more cheaper…..
Basically, all of these carriers have made it so you’d have to be really desperate to switch carriers if you’ve been with your particular carrier long enough to be grandfathered on a good plan.
Is this for those that already have the 200mb or just new costumers
Just new customers. Updated post. =)
Get ready boys and girls here it comes at&t.
get ready for your monthly mugging! lol
I have this plan. I’m just glad that my plan will be grandfathered in.
