T-Mobile to lower unlimited data prices


T-Mobile may lower its rates for unlimited data, sources tell TmoNews. The blog says that T-Mobile will lower the price of its “Even More individual unlimited plan to $79.99, down $20 from $99.99. For “Even More Plus” customers, the savings will be deeper with a price reduction to $69.99. The new plans should launch on Feb. 23, just in time for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S 4G.

This is only the latest move T-Mobile has made to try and compete with the stiff competition of AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. It has been aggressively airing commercials touting its 4G network and even ran a promotion last week that, for two days, offered any phone free with a two-year contract.

In addition, the carrier is refocusing its efforts on offering lower prices on smartphone plans (seen here) and offering a better selection of Android phones than the competition. It has also launched a quazi-4G network using HSPA+ technology, which offers higher speeds than traditional 3G data connections.

Would lower prices coax you into choosing T-Mobile?
