Simple Mobile has revamped its mobile broadband plans. The T-Mobile MVNO's old broadband plans were laughably bad; $25/month for 750MB and $40/month for 2GB. The new plans are quite competitive:
- $20/month for 1.5GB
- $40/month for 4GB
- $60/month for 6GB
While the new Simple Mobile plans are a vast improvement over the old ones, there are even better deals available. T-Mobile itself is running a promotion through the end of the year that offers with $10 - 1GB, $20 - 3 GB and $30 - 5GB. Red Pocket Mobile has T-Mobile based broadband plans priced at $10 - 1 GB, $30 - 3GB and $50 - 5GB. Red Pocket's $30 and $50 plans also include unlimited throttled data after the 3GB or 5GB high-speed allotment is used. However the Red Pocket plans don't support LTE and T-Mobile's require the user to setup autopay with a credit or debit card, although the plans and autopay can be cancelled at anytime without penalty. That makes the Simple plans the best deal for cardless users with LTE-capable devices.
