T-Mobile is looking to change the game again with its announcement of Uncarrier 12. The company announced its new T-Mobile ONE plans a few weeks ago which bring unlimited data back to the users without worrying about incurring any overage fees. However, T-Mobile ONE
doesn’t didn’t solve all the problems that users have with cell phone plans and carriers such as HD video steaming or high-speed tethering.
We’ve ended data buckets, gone unlimited and now we’re amping up T-Mobile ONE to make it even better. Listening to customers is at the core of the Un-carrier. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – the best way to run your company is to shut up, listen to your customers, and then do what they say! That simple formula has made T-Mobile the fastest growing wireless company in the US for three years running.

Today, T-Mobile announced a few tweaks to the new plans, as well as T-Mobile ONE Plus. The tweaks to T-Mobile ONE include faster mobile hotspots speeds and HD day passes. When announced, T-Mobile ONE included unlimited 2G tethering, but now users will be able to tether via 3G speeds (from 128kbps to 512kbps).
The company also drew much criticism for its inability for users to stream HD quality videos on devices that feature gorgeous displays. But is adding HD Day passes which will let customers stream HD videos for 24 hours after purchasing a pass which costs just $3.
Additionally, the carrier is introducing T-Mobile ONE Plus which is an add-on that fixes most of the complaints that have arisen after the announcement of T-Mobile ONE.
- Unlimited High-speed 4G LTE mobile hotspot data. Now, customers don’t have to count gigs when connecting another device to their phone or tablet on T-Mobile’s network. While T-Mobile ONE is designed primarily for use directly on smartphones and tablets, some customers use these devices as hotspots and now they can browse the web, snap, gram, post and stream a movie to a laptop or the big screen at high-speeds, without fear of exceeding a data bucket.
- Unlimited HD Day Passes. Want to stream HD video? Toggle it on for 24 hours whenever you want. Every day, once a week or once a month – it’s up to you! All the HD video you want, whenever you want it, to binge watch your favorite series, have a movie night with the family or just watch unlimited pet videos from YouTube.
- 2x faster speeds abroad. Already, T-Mobile ONE comes with Simple Global – which includes free data roaming in 140+ countries and destinations. Customers with the new T-Mobile One Plus will get the same awesome global connection at twice the speed, up to 3G speeds wherever available.
Subscribers will be able to take advantage of T-Mobile ONE Plus for an extra $25 per month, and will make Big Magenta the first carrier to offer unlimited high-speed mobile hotspots and an unlimited LTE tablet plan. Finally, T-Mobile is pushing up the release of its new plans, as they were to be available starting on September 6th, users can now choose the new T-Mobile ONE plans starting on September 1st.
