t-mobile plans

T-Mobile's data plans have been some of the best and most affordable since it took up the mantle of the 'Uncarrier' and dropped the old way of mobile networks. The good prices didn't come with a lack of solid features either.

T-Mobile has made it easy to become a new customer, easy to pick up a new smartphone, and thanks to a recent change in its plans, it's easier than ever to pick one of T-Mobile's plans.

If T-Mobile is the carrier you want, check out the details on each plan it offers to find the one that fits your needs and budget.

T-Mobile One plan: Explained

The T-Mobile One plan just about explains itself. T-Mobile has completely streamlined the process of selecting a post-paid plan by simply offering one plan. The One plan includes unlimited calling, texting and data. That's with music and video streaming and mobile hotspot.

T-Mobile makes the prices simple, too, by offering a clear monthly price that includes all fees and taxes for the service. The price varies based on how many lines are added, so you can get a lower rate if you sign up with family and friends.

There are also a couple of add-ons to the service that we'll dive into shortly.

  • Jump straight to the T-Mobile One plan

Previously T-Mobile had offered its mobile data plans with clear data caps and a Data Stash features to roll over unused data, but that's no longer necessary with unlimited data for everyone on the One plan. The old Music Freedom and Binge On services that allowed users to stream music and video without counting it toward their data is also gone, because data limits are gone.

Users on the One plan may face reduced speeds during times of network congestion, but that is aimed primarily at users who exceed 32GB of data usage a month. Video and hotspot data rates may also be limited depending on the plan you choose.
