I’m a big proponent of increased options and customer flexibility, and allowing customers prepay plans is something the American market has long been missing. T-Mobile USA will try to fill that gap with prepaid data plans that Engadget says could launch at CTIA in the next several days:
According to the rumors you can choose from either:
- $10 = 100MB/7 Days – plan complete with whichever comes first
- $30 = 300MB/30 Days – plan complete with whichever comes first
- $50 = 1GB/30 Days – plan complete with whichever comes first
The best part of this plan is it’s easy to remember… unfortunately, it isn’t that good. Europeans and others around the world are enjoying far better plans at far better rates with the same flexibility. I guess we’ve got some catching up to do but it’s good to see the pre-paid plan take steps forward.
Even if they’re baby steps.
