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.
Which mobile carrier is the fastest?Credit: Geralt/Pixabay There was a kerfuffle between T-Mobile and Verizon last Fall over a T-Mobile ad claiming its mobile network was faster than Verizon's. The National Advertising Division (NAD) recommended that T-Mobile stop saying it was faster, Verizon and T-Mobile quibbled about one thing and another, and T-Mobile pulled the ad but still claimed it had the faster network.

Here's how this mega-merger could be good or bad for long-time customers. T-Mobile and Sprint announced on April 29, 2018 that they reached an agreement to combine into a new company that would reshape the U.S. wireless landscape by reducing it to three major cellphone providers. The deal would help the companies slash costs and could make them a stronger competitor to the larger AT&T and Verizon.

The proposed union of Sprint and T-Mobile is no merger of equals: Over the last few years, T-Mobile's coverage and performance have leapt much farther ahead than Sprint's.
