T-Mobile announced new lower pricing for prepaid mobile broadband plans that will go into effect Sunday May 20th at t-mobile.com, T-Mobile stores and other retailers selling T-Mobile broadband products. There's also an exclusive Walmart deal described after the break. Here's a table comparison of the old and new pricing.
|Old Price||Term||Data||New Price||Term||Data|
|$10||7 days||100 MB||$15||7 days||300 MB|
|$30||1 Month||1 GB||$25||1 Month||1.5 GB|
|N/A||$35||1 Month||3.5 GB|
|$50||1 Month||3 GB||$50||1 Month||5 GB|
But wait there's more. TMONews found a page on walmart.com with a special deal on the new $35 3.5 GB refills. It what appears to be a Wally World exclusive, if you buy the $35 refill, and only the $35 one, from Walmart it's good for 60 days rather than the usual 30.
These plans are intended for USB wireless modems, wireless hotspots and tablets. They reportedly work in phones too but for data only, no voice, SMS or MMS. You could however use VOIP for calling and Google Voice for texts.
