While T-Mobile already has a pretty decent prepaid service of their own, they now are hoping to switch things up a bit with an effort they call “GoSmart Mobile”. This prepaid-only network is all about unlimited options.
The base plan is $30 a month for unlimited talk and text. Need data but don’t care if it’s not exactly the fastest in the world? You can get unlimited talk, text and 2G data speeds for $35.
For those that need 3G speeds, it will set you back $45 for unlimited talk, text and 3G. Keep in mind that the 3G here isn’t truly “unlimited” despite their claims. You get 5GB of 3G each month, after that you go down to 2G for any additional usage.
Interestingly enough, GoSmart Mobile’s page bills the 3G service as “high speed”– not exactly what I’d use to describe 3G, maybe that’s just me. There are also a few interesting add-ons like international unlimited texting for $5, or unlimited calling and texting internationally to over 200 countries for just $10 a month more.
What do you think of T-Mobile’s GoSmart Mobile effort, interested or not?
