Value and Classic plans could get tethering pre-packaged with 500MB, 2.5GB, and 4.5GB options
In a screenshot recently obtained by TmoNews, it appears T-Mobile may be doing further restructuring of its post-paid plans. If true, unlimited data for both the Value and Classic plans will come pre-bundled with various tethering options starting on Wednesday. Basically, instead of buying unlimited data and a separate tethering bucket, subscribers will buy unlimited data with 500MB, 2.5GB, or 4.5GB of included tethering.
Currently, 500MB of tethering is already included with unlimited data. Instead of subscribers getting a $10 add-on for 2.5GB of tethering with their $20 unlimited data plan, the same plan will start at $30 and include tethering. For $40 a month, there is also a 4.5GB tethering option. Classic Plans will get the same changes: a $30 base plan with 500MB of tethering, a $40 plan with 2.5GB of tethering, and a $50 plan with 4.5GB of tethering.
It makes sense to see further simplification of T-Mobile's plans, making customer choices easier and less confusing (and in some cases cheaper). We'll be waiting for the official announcement in the coming days to see if these changes pan out.
