T-Mobile is prepared to improve its T-Mobile One unlimited service plan ($70) in the wake of Verizon’s new unlimited plan ($80).
Primarily, T-Mobile will give T-Mobile One subscribers access to high-definition video and 10 GB of LTE 4G mobile hotspot data. Previously, streamed video was limited to 480p definition and hotspot data was limited to 3G speeds. Verizon’s new plan includes HD video and 10 GB of LTE hotspot data, but cost $10 more than T-Mobile’s before taxes and fees.
T-Mobile has matched the features of Verizon’s plan without increasing its prices. Moreover, T-Mobile is offering these features to two lines for $100, and T-Mobile’s plan includes taxes and fees.
The news was shared by T-Mobile CEO John Legere via his Twitter account. Some details from still aren’t clear; for example, whether “HD” means 720p or 1080p. The changes to T-Mobile’s One unlimited plan, available to existing customers ad new customers alike, will go into effect Friday, Feb. 17.
