T-Mobile users should rejoice as the mobile carrier is planning to phase out data limits for their data plans but with a catch.

Unlimited data plans would cost more than the current prices of T-Mobile's available subscriptions today. For some, this may be good news as they rely on their mobile data for their everyday Internet activities even at home.

Unfortunately, the unlimited data plan from T-Mobile may also be bad news for others who do not really use all of their data. They will be paying more for data that they do not usually need.

T-Mobile announced their move on Thursday after Verizon and AT&T made similar moves in the past few weeks, CIO-Today has learned. Mobile carriers are becoming more competitive as people's demand for Internet access increases everyday thanks to social media and global app phenomena such as the recent Pokémon GO popularity boom across the world.

Price reductions have been another move for some carriers as other people opt for the cheapest option possible. In T-Mobile's case, they want to cater to a possibly much larger audience who needs more data throughout the day.

There has been several more moves that T-Mobile made to lure customers to their plans. One is giving access to their subscribers to the popular video streaming services such as HBO, ESPN and Netflix which houses several of the big hitter TV shows from Marvel and DC.

T-Mobile will be cutting the price for their unlimited data plans starting on September 6, Daily Herald reported. Users will be forced to switch to the unlimited data plans as the current plans with data limits will be phased out.

Fortunately, users on the limited data subscriptions can still make use of them as T-Mobile did not announce a phase out date yet. What is clear is that the unlimited data plans will be the main offerings of the company to future customers.

T-Mobile's unlimited data plans would still have a cap of 26 gigabytes per month but that does not mean it will be cut off. Users will get slower speeds in times of network congestion especially at peak times although the terms of the services could still vary.
