Last week, AT&T rolled out a $20 discount on its prepaid unlimited data plans.

An anonymous tip sent to TmoNews indicates that T-Mobile will be introducing a Global Plus add on plan for T-Mobile One subscribers who travel overseas. The new offering is through T-Mobile Prepaid, not Metro by T-Mobile, and it'll only be available for a limited time. Effective immediately, prepaid plans from Verizon now start at $30 and top out at $65 instead of $75. So from this point on the 3GB of LTE data per month plan, which normally costs $40 per month, will only cost $35 per month with autopay switched on.

"Starting November 6, the new Verizon Prepaid lineup includes a new lower price of $65 for Unlimited, $45 for 8 GB, and $35 for 3 GB - which includes $5 per month Auto Pay discounts per line on these plans - and for customers looking for unlimited USA talk and text at a great price, $30 for 500MB".

Each plan supports sharing your data allotment to other devices with mobile hotspot, save for the unlimited LTE plan, and both the 8GB and unlimited plans include free unlimited calling to Canada and Mexico. Subscribers will "typically" get 480p video resolutions when streaming over mobile data; they'll also be limited to 3G network speeds when tethered. For $50 each month, T-Mobile will give users unlimited talk, text, and LTE data.


The plan includes unlimited talk, text, and data, but also features a few caveats.

The $50/month unlimited plan is a $10 discount from T-Mobile's regular prepaid unlimited plan ($60/month for T-Mobile Essentials Prepaid). Leaked internal documents from T-Mobile reveal that the carrier will launch the program starting tomorrow, November 9th.

You can find this on the T-Mobile prepaid website.
