T-Mobile's Hikes Price of One Plus by $5

T-mobile news

The "Un-Carrier" just got a bit more, well, carrier-ish. 

T-Mobile has quietly raised the price of their Plus add-on by $5, bringing its total cost to $10. Paired with the $70 unlimited One plan, you'll now be shelling out $80 for things like HD video streaming, unlimited mobile hotspot use, and unlimited in-flight WiFi. 

This means that One Plus now costs exactly the same as Verizon's Unlimited plan. Given the amount of derision T-Mobile CEO John Legere has directed at Verizon over the years, it's not surprising the company has kept this price hike tightly under wraps. 

If you were to ask Legere about it, he'd undoubtedly be quick to point out that One Plus features international benefits that Verizon's unlimited plan does not. This includes the aforementioned unlimited Gogo in-flight WiFi, as well as 3G data in over 140 countries (4G in Mexico and Canada). Also, T-Mobile's price includes all taxes and fees. 

On the other hand, Verizon's network is still the most robust in the country, far outpacing T-Mobile's (don't believe Legere's claims to the contrary). Sure, T-Mobile's coverage is fantastic in some urban areas--Seattle is one example--but Verizon still rules the United States. Sorry John. 

The cheapest unlimited plan of the four majors belongs to Sprint, at $50. Like T-Mobile, Sprint's coverage can be a bit hit-or-miss, depending where you are. 

Note that the price change does not affect customers already paying the original $5 for Plus--they'll be grandfathered in and can continue with that rate.
