T-Mobile to stop charging for overages on 5GB data plan.
FierceWireless is reporting that U.S. cellular provider T-Mobile will stop charging smartphone users with overage charges if they go over the 5GB monthly limit set on most data plans. The company did mention that it would, "throttle users' speeds if they exceed that limit." No details were given on the what a "throttled" user can expect to see for speeds, but I think data at a slower speed beats the crapk out of an monster phone bill. They also announced that subscribers with a 250MB monthly data plan will now be charged $0.10/MB for overages of their monthly allowance, a 50% reduction from the previous rate of $0.20/MB. Not earth shattering stuff, but definitely something that earns a little consumer karma for the #4 carrier in the States. Let us know what you think about the move in the comments.R
