T-Mobile is rolling out a plan later this week that will almost completely remove the throttling. The new Magenta Max plan includes unlimited premium data and unlimited video streaming at 4K. It also includes 40 GB of high-speed tethering data (T-Mobile will throttle your devices to 3G speeds after you exceed this limit) as well as benefits such as free gogo WiFi during the flight and international roaming in 210 countries.
All so-called “unlimited” plans in the US (and some other parts of the world) are currently throttling customers after reviewing their monthly data allocation. T-Mobile claims that it can’t do that with Magenta Max, whether you’re using the plan to access a 5G or LTE connection to its network. The company launches a plan to “show what a truly powerful 5G network can do for consumers”.
Magenta Max will replace the carrier’s existing Magneta Plus plan on February 24th. For a limited time, you can get the plan for $ 47 a month, according to T-Mobile. However, if you already have three lines on your account and are using the autopay offer. Single-line customers can look forward to paying $ 85 per month with Autopay. In addition to the plan, the airline is introducing an action for those who want to switch. If you come to the network operator with your own device, your phone number will be ported free of charge. In addition, current customers of AT&T and Verizon (Engadget’s parent company) can receive up to $ 650 in the form of a prepaid card upon transition.
Regular Magenta customers can also look forward to something new. The plan now includes 100 GB of premium data, compared to the 50 GB as of 2017. It now also includes 5 GB of high-speed tethering data compared to the 3 GB that was previously delivered.
