Uncarrier 12 is here, and it’s a big one. T-Mobile has brought back truly unlimited data for all plans. It’s coming under the guise of T-Mobile ONE, the company’s new outlook on mobile smartphone usage. Customers will get unlimited talk, text, and data, and it costs $70 for one line, $50 for the next line, and $20 for each line after that. A family of four could get on the train for $160 per month if they have auto-pay turned out.

A family of four could get on the train for $160 per month if they have auto-pay turned on (add $5 per line for those with auto-pay turned off). Tablets can also be added for $20 each and get all the same data benefits.
It’s nice to wave the world “unlimited” around without any context, of course, but there are some caveats to note. Here they are:
- If you want to use mobile hotspot, you’ll still be limited to 2G speeds unless you pay $15 per month.
- Wearables, which can be added for $5 per month, are limited to 2G.
- Unlimited video is only included at 480p, but an extra $25 per month lets you view at resolutions up to 4K.
- The top 3% of data users will be throttled once they cross a threshold of 26GB, but only if the network demands throttling.
That said, it’s better than most others are willing to offer these days. Those new to T-Mobile will be hooked up with the T-Mobile ONE plan, while those currently with the company can choose to stay with their old Simple Choice plans or opt to switch over to T-Mobile ONE if it’s a better option for them. Look forward to the changes starting September 6th.
