T-Mobile Intros ‘Simply Prepaid’ Plans, Unlimited Data With Allotted Amounts of High-speed Access

This morning, T-Mobile introduced a new plan called Simply Prepaid. With it, customers should have very little problem navigating exactly what they are paying for each month, as T-Mobile is upfront about all of its details.

The plan includes 3 different tiers. For $40, you gain access to unlimited data, talk and text, plus up to 1GB of 4G LTE speed. For $50, users get the same unlimited data, talk and text, but have 3GB of LTE speed. Finally, $60 nets you unlimited data, talk and text, and 5GB of LTE speed.  (more…)

T-Mobile Announces Rollover 4G LTE Data for Uncarrier 8.0

T-Mobile unwrapped Uncarrier 8.0 this morning with the announcement that they will let customers rollover their high-speed 4G LTE data from one month to the next. They are calling it Data Stash, but it’s really just rollover for data. The idea is that you might only use 2GB of your 3GB plan this month, so you should get to keep that extra unused 1GB and use it in the next month. Get it? It’s rolling over to the next month. Well, in T-Mobile’s case, they are allowing you to “stash” it and then use it next month.  (more…)

Verizon is Already Killing Some of Its 3G Network for More LTE Action

According to a report out of Gigaom, Verizon has already begun shutting down portions of its 3G CDMA network in Manhattan so that it can be converted over to LTE (or at least begin testing it). A contributor to the site (who just so happens to track spectrum with an analyzer on the regular), noticed that Big Red has been toying with its older network for the last month; turning it both off and back on again at select cell sites. Only this week, when it came back on, it was producing an LTE signal on the PCS 1900MHz band instead of CDMA.  (more…)
