T-Mobile’s new Magenta Max plan with no smartphone data throttling will be available from Feb 24

T-Mobile is adding another plan to its lineup, this time intended for its most demanding data clients. Called Magenta Max, the new plan will supplant the current Magenta Plus offering and become accessible beginning on Feb. 24. The new Max offering outstandingly features no smartphone data throttling paying little mind to the amount 4G or 5G data you use in a month.

Mobile hotspot data, in any case, will be eased back to “3G speeds” on the off chance that you surpass 40GB in a month. The Magenta Plus plan previously restricted high-speed mobile hotspot data to 20GB in a month.

T-Mobile says the new plan will launch at a “limited time” cost of $47 per line each month for three lines with automatic payments, a $10 discount from its ordinary $57-per-line-per-month rate. A single line is $85 each month with autopay, with all plans incorporating taxes and fees in the pricing.

Different features for Max incorporate a subscription to Netflix’s Standard plan (typically $14 each month), which allows for HD streaming in the event that you have at least two lines, while a subscription to Netflix’s non-HD Basic plan ($9 per month) will be incorporated for single Max lines.

You additionally will actually want to stream on your phone in 4K UHD (instead of HD), insofar as you have the appropriate content and a phone with a high-resolution display.

To attempt to draw clients from Verizon and AT&T the carrier will offer a “zero cost to switch” promotion that will permit the individuals who are financing a phone to switch to T-Mobile and have it cover up to $650 per line off of the leftover installment plan while allowing you to keep the phone.

Like the discounted rate the switcher offer is a “limited time” deal, yet Staneff wouldn’t reveal how long the time-period would last, saying just that it will be around “until we change it going forward.”

Beyond the Max change, those with T-Mobile’s main Magenta plan will likewise see a few upgrades without expecting to adjust their plan, including having up to 100GB of high-speed monthly data on their phone and 5GB of high-speed mobile hotspot data per month.
