T-Mobile Re-Gimping 200 MB “Classic” Data Plan With Overages.

  • August 10, 2011 12:13 pm

Thinking of pulling a fast one on T-Mobile USA by subscribing to the cheaper 200 MB data plan and accepting the throttled speeds afterwards? While that is a great way to save a few bucks, the unfortunate problem is that a boatload of other people had the same idea. As such, T-Mobile USA claims to have had their “expectations exceeded” in demand for the cheaper tier and in turn will remove the sorta-kinda unlimited setup and returning to a traditional capped option with overages. Speaking of which, from here on out customers on the classic plan will have to deal with overages of $0.10/MB (maxing out at $30). Value plan customers will have to weather the same $0.10/MB overage fee but will get to enjoy a slightly larger cushion of of $35 max.

T-Mobile declined to comment about how the new change would affect their more generous 2 GB plan as well as older “unlimited” plans soft capped at ~ 5 GB.
