    T-Mobile would not be out done after having to endure Verizon's big Prime Time announcement that they would finally be bringing back unlimited data. Verizon actually did kind of outdo T-Mobile when they announced they wouldn't place any stupid restrictions on video streams the way that T-Mobile has with 480p streaming. Verizon also decided to add 10GB of free hotspot use which T-Mobile had not previously included.

    T-Mobile buckled under the pressure and will add both HD streaming and 10GB of hotspot data usage to their TMobileOne plan. T-Mobile also went as far as to discount their plan to $100 for 2 lines which is far cheaper than Verizon's 2 line price of $140. Verizon will also tack on taxes and fees to that $140 whereas T-Mobile will include all taxes and fees for the $100 price. T-Mobile has not specified how long the $100 discounted rate will apply, but even after that goes away their unlimited plan is only $120 which is still cheaper than Verizon. If T-Mobile had better coverage in my area they are making a pretty convincing play for my subscription dollars.

    I've been on the old school T-Mobile Unlimited everything, 7Gb Hotspot, JUMP every 6 months plan since I switched from Big Red back in 2013/2014. Need to know the JUMP plans, before I go an switch up to a new T-MO plan. Every 6 months JUMP is too nice not to keep.

    So, you're saying T-Mobile is good in the greater Cleveland area?

    It's about dang time these companies started competing for our business instead of just seemingly working together to drive prices up.

    Hoping this new trend continues to my benefit!
