T-Mobile's unlimited plan now throttles you after 30GB of usage

When T-Mobile announced its new unlimited ONE plans back in August, many were quick to criticize that it's not really unlimited. It didn't include HD streaming, mobile hotspot speeds would be 2G (128kbps), and users would get throttled after using up a certain amount of data. A few days later, mobile hotspot was bumped up to 3G (512kbps) and offered the opportunity to buy HD passes.

And since other carriers began following suit with their own unlimited plans, T-Mobile has increased its benefits even further, by offering HD video included as well as 10GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot. But while the Un-carrier didn't make a formal announcement, it made a minor change today, which is that customers will now get throttled after 30GB, rather than 28GB.

In fact, that number was originally 26GB when T-Mobile first introduced the plan. The firm says that it's for those using the top 3% of data, so it will fluctuate from time to time. For now though, T-Mobile's ONE plan is just a little bit more unlimited than it was yesterday.
