Want your T-Mobile smartphone with 200MB of data? If you still haven’t signed-up for such a contract, you can’t do that anymore. Starting with October 10th, future smartphone owners will have to commit on a plan that includes at least 2GB of monthly data. According to the Magenta carrier, modern smartphones consume more data and the 200MB plan is easily used up. With 10 times more data per month, consumers are protected from any unexpected overage charges or throttling.
Existing customers, on the other hand, can keep their 200MB plans and use them like it’s nobody’s business… at least until they want to get a new phone from T-Mobile.
