T-Mobile recently introduced a new plan called T-Mobile ONE that offers unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data for $70 per month. A second line can be added for $50 per month, while up to six more lines can be added for an additional $20 per month each. The total cost for a family of four, for example, would be $160 per month.

At the time, T-Mobile said mobile hotspot tethering would be limited to 2G speeds, with 5GB of high-speed tethering available as a $15 add-on. But today, the carrier has changed its tune and announced that T-Mobile ONE will now include unlimited tethering at 3G speeds in the U.S. at no additional cost.

Or, customers that want high-speed tethering can upgrade to the new T-Mobile ONE Plus plan, which includes unlimited tethering at 4G LTE speeds, unlimited HD video streaming, and Simple Global international data roaming at up to 3G speeds where available for an extra $25 per month per line. The carrier previously planned to charge an extra $25 per month just for the unlimited HD video streaming upgrade.

The regular T-Mobile ONE plan will continue to limit video to 480p standard definition across all services, but the carrier is also now introducing HD day passes for $3 per day that allow unlimited HD video streaming for 24 hours.

T-Mobile ONE will also now be available on September 1, five days earlier than the company previously announced.

Certainly an improvement over the original announcement. 512Kbps tethering may still sound bad, but it's far more usable than 128Kbps.

T-Mobile, being the [S]4th[/S] 3rd largest carrier, sure does push the industry forward with its special offers and ground-breaking ideas for service plans. I think without them, the big 3 wouldn't be looking at some of the plans they do offer and we'd be worse off for it.

Okay, this is WAY better. I'm pretty okay with T-Mobile ONE now. 512kbps is pretty usable, especially when compared to 128kbps. And instead of $15 for 5GB of tethering, and an additional $25 for HD video, it's only $25 for both unlimited tethering and HD video! And free 256kbps international roaming, where before it was free 128kbps roaming. That's way better.

Considering they deprioritize traffic after 26GB I doubt anyone will do that. And before people start screaming "BUT BUT UNLIMITED" Tmobile gets to define "Unlimited" in the contract and the data still is unlimited but not at the higher speed.
If you're in an area that's hardly congested, then you probably don't be de-prioritized, and can use tons of data at high speeds. I think most people reading "de-prioritized at 26GB" phrase as "immediately throttled to death," which isn't the case for most people.

Very much agreed. I'm still with Verizon for the time being, but I love the effect that T-Mobile is having on the industry.

Anyone know if you have to add this for all lines on the plan, or if it can be selective and only be on one of the lines?
It appears to be a per line addition. "for an extra $25 per month per line"
