More price increases for the #4 carrier in the US. Starting April 4th, new customers who sign up for either one of T-Mobile’s 5GB or 10GB “Classic Unlimited” plans will be paying an extra $5 a month for those data services. Those that signed up for these services before April 4th will be grandfathered in, no problem.
This could be seen as a move by T-Mobile to make their Value plans more attractive to new customers but no matter which way you look at, this probably wont go over too well for customers possibly considering making an upgrade to the higher data plan. But I guess T-Mobile’s gotta do what they can to stay afloat — even after all that spectrum and $4 billion they received from AT&T.
