New rate plans must not be all that T-Mobile USA plans to announce at an event on Tuesday, since they're already showing their hand by introducing them on the web over the weekend.
As first noted by a Twitter post from TmoNews, T-Mobile USA's new "Simple Choice" rate plans have now shown up on the company's website, offering unlimited talk, text plus 500MB of high-speed 4G data starting at $50 per month.
Better yet, all of the company's new metered data plans include Smartphone Mobile HotSpot for device tethering -- the only time you'll need to pay extra for that is should you choose one of the carrier's new unlimited plans, which start at $70 per month. But even then, T-Mobile includes 500MB of hotspot-specific data, which is perfect for occasional users.
The savings really add up when applied to family plans -- for example, a AT&T Mobile Share plan with four lines and 4GB of data runs around $240 per month, while the same T-Mobile plan with unlimited data would cost a whopping $60 less.
Of course, the rub is that the iPhone isn't officially supported yet -- you'll need an unlocked handset to take advantage of it, and there's no 4G LTE as yet. But with T-Mobile holding a media event on Tuesday, we imagine there could be more good news in store for users soon enough…
