Pay in Advance Passes
If you need some additional data, or are just looking for a temporary internet solution, T-Mobile’s Pay in Advance Passes might be what you have been looking for. It offers plans that last for one week or one month, each with different data limits. You pay a single flat rate ahead of time and then you can use the internet until you reach the end of the week or month or hit your data limit.
Multiple Mobile Broadband Plans
T-Mobile offers a huge variety of postpaid 4G LTE mobile broadband internet plans to its customers, with data limits ranging from 2GB to 18GB. Upload and download speeds are the same on all plans, so you can just focus on how much data you think you use in a month. This should allow you to find an internet package that gives you exactly what you need without making you pay for a ton of extra data that you don’t use.
Fast Upload Rates
T-Mobile offers 8 Mpbs upload speeds with all of its 4G LTE mobile broadband internet packages. This is useful if you need to upload photos, videos, or other large files to the web. Though uploading happens less often than downloading, it is still an important part of your overall experience with the 4G LTE mobile broadband internet service, and so it is nice to see T-Mobile offering these higher speeds to its customers.
Expanding 4G LTE Network
T-Mobile has spent billions of dollars in the past few years upgrading its 4G LTE network. The company claims it’s expanded coverage to roughly 100 million additional people in the past two years and its network currently covers more than 304 million people. Still, that number is slightly less than what some competitors offer, but it won’t be long until T-Mobile matches other industry leaders.
Binge On Concerns
T-Mobile certainly touts the benefits of its Binge On streaming service, which allows users with a qualifying plan to stream unlimited video from certain providers (YouTube and Netflix, for example) without impacting monthly data limits. However, unlimited streaming isn’t available on all plans and not all video providers are included (though many major ones are). Critics and, recently, federal regulators have also raised questions about whether the service violates the concept of net neutrality, which suggests all data on the internet should be treated the same.
