Verizon and AT&T recently reduced their prices as well. T-Mobile is the latest carrier to discount its prepaid unlimited data plan. For a limited time, the company is offering unlimited talk, text and data for $50 per month, which is $10 less than its T-Mobile Essentials Prepaid plan. The move comes after rivals Verizon and AT&T both recently knocked a few bucks off of their prepaid unlimited plans. Last week, AT&T reduced its unlimited data prepaid plans by $20, bringing its two options down to $45 and $65. And earlier this week, Verizon followed suit by dropping its prepaid unlimited data plan to $65 for a limited time. While T-Mobile's discount puts its plan at a competitive price, there are some caveats to keep in mind. The plan is approved for domestic use only, unlike AT&T's plan, which allows for talk, text and data use in Mexico and Canada. Both AT&T's and Verizon's plans also offer unlimited talk and text to Mexico and Canada. T-Mobile's regularly priced Essentials Prepaid plan, on the other hand, offers unlimited talk, text and data at 2G speeds in Mexico and Canada. Additionally, T-Mobile says video will typically stream at 480p with its $50 per month plan, and customers using more than 50GB of data per month may experience reduced speeds during times of congestion. Tethering is also at a max of 3G speeds. T-Mobile didn't say how long its deal will last. You can find out more here. Verizon owns Engadget's parent company, Oath (formerly AOL).

After AT&T and Verizon both lowered their prepaid unlimited data plan prices, T-Mobile is following in the footsteps of its competitors by offering a discount on its prepaid unlimited data plan. For a limited time, customers can sign up for a $50 per month prepaid plan with unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data. That puts T-Mobiles plan at a much cheaper price than Verizons $65 prepaid plan, which doesnt include mobile hotspots. That said, T-Mobiles plan limits mobile tethering to 3G speeds and video streaming to 480p. The plan is only for domestic use, too, whereas Verizons plan offers unlimited talk and texting in the US, Mexico, and Canada, along with unlimited texting to over 200 countries. AT&T is currently offering a $20 discount on its unlimited plans if you activate a new prepaid service line and set up autopay until December 26th online and January 10th in stores. The offer is eligible for its plans which normally cost $65 and $85, the latter offering 1080p video streaming and 10GB of mobile hotspot data. Postpaid unlimited data plans have been rising in popularity among major US carriers since 2017, and now, carriers are slashing their prices for prepaid unlimited plans for the same reason: to stay competitive. T-Mobile hasnt said when its offer will end, so its best to jump on this deal soon.
