T-Mobile has some new data plans and maybe with a little luck the competition will follow suit! The Boy Genius Report indicated in a story today that T-Mobile is set to completely revamp their data plan lineup with a new pricing scheme. This plan will definitely catch the eyes of subscribers and may well cause the competition to start to think about revamping their pricing structure.
Beginning tomorrow, September 12th, the big Pink will be dropping updates to their BlackBerry and Total Internet plan offerings. The Total Internet add-on, which includes unlimited web browsing and data service for devices such Wing and Dash, will drop from $29.99 to $19.99. Sweet! The BIS add-on will remain at $19.99 for customers in need of the full BlackBerry email/web browsing experience.
For anyone simply looking for an email solution, however, things are about to get very interesting. T-Mobile is launching a new BlackBerry add-on plan that will give customers access to any BIS-accessible email accounts for $9.99 a month. All web browsing and secondary data access will be blocked, but for a 10-spot, it?s hard to argue with the lack of frills. Not bad at all. The bad news (you knew there had to be something) is that the standalone BIS option, as well as the standalone Total Internet Plan, will go up to $39.99 from $29.99. Curiously, this makes the BIS and BES standalone packages identical in price. We?re not sure if T-Mobile HotSpot Wi-Fi access will still be part of the Total Internet package, but we?ve seen nothing to indicate that it won?t still available to subscribers. These new plans will be available via retail channels tomorrow and on T-Mobile.com by the 16th of September. All you FlexPay customers can expect to see changes by the 16th.
