T-Mobile introduces new data plans, HSPA+ laptop stick

T-Mobile USA debuted new webConnect data plans to mimic its suite of Even More and Even More Plus calling plans. The carrier also said it will launch its first HSPA+ device, the webConnect Rocket USB stick, on Sunday, March 14.

Specifically, the new webConnect plan are as follows:

  • $59.99 per month for 5 GB of data ($0.20/MB overage) with a two-year contract (Even More)
  • $29.99 per month for 200 MB of data ($0.20/MB overage) with a two-year contract (Even More)
  • $49.99 per month for 5 GB of data ($0.20/MB overage) with no contract (Even More Plus)
  • $19.99 per month for 200 MB of data ($0.20/MB overage) with no contract (Even More Plus)

The webConnect Rocket USB Laptop Stick will cost $99.99 with a two-year contract and an Even More webConnect data plan. It will cost $199.99 without a contract. Initially it will just be sold at retail stores in Philadelphia where the company's HSPA+ network is available, however the carrier plans to deploy HSPA+ nationwide by year-end. The Rocket is also available online.

The launch of the Rocket is not a big surprise. T-Mobile announced last month at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, that it would release its first HSPA+ device in March. According to T-Mobile, the webConnect Rocket will enable subscribers in the operator's Philadelphia HSPA+ market to surf the Web, download large files or view video content on the go at speeds comparable with their home broadband service.
