Thanks to our growing array of gadgets with cellular capabilities, our need for data grows by the day. However, signing up for a data plan often involves committing to as much as two years with a specific carrier, which doesn't suit everyone. Wireless carrier T-Mobile this week announced the addition of contract-free data-only passes to its portfolio of plans.
T-Mobile's no contract mobile broadband service passes debuted this weekend and will start at $15 for a one-week 300MB pass. The rest of the options are monthly passes that range in price from $25 (for 1.5GB) to $50 (for 5GB). The passes are available for customers boasting the Sonic 4G or T-Mobile 4G mobile hotspots as well as the Rocket 3.0 data stick. The Galaxy Tab 10.1, 7,0 Plus and SpringBoard are also covered.
"Although most of our mobile broadband customers choose postpaid rate plans for the best device prices and data rates, we know that many of our customers want the flexibility to be able to experience mobile broadband without committing to an annual contract up front," said Jeremy Korst, vice president of marketing, T-Mobile USA. "With better pricing and new features like an auto-refill option and a simpler purchase experience, T-Mobile's No Annual Contract mobile broadband passes make it easier and more affordable than ever to experience high-speed Internet on the go on a range of devices."
These no contract mobile broadband passes are available as of yesterday, May 20.
