"All of our smartphone plans include unlimited US talk & text and global text to more than 200 destinations", the company said on its website.

Last week, AT&T rolled out a $20 discount on its prepaid unlimited data plans. On Wednesday, T-Mobile launched a limited-time offer that undercuts Verizon's newly discounted prepaid unlimited plan by a sizeable margin. 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.

The pre-paid market is becoming more competitive in the USA but Verizons plans are still not the best value in prepaid unlimited. The cheapest is $30 and offers unlimited talk and text with a 500MB 4G LTE data limit. That makes it $15 less expensive than Verizon's plan each month, which adds up to a substantial $180 annually. All plans also include unlimited talk and texts to over 200 destinations.

We also do not know if T-Mobile will treat this prepaid plans like it does the rest.

That's the case for T-Mobile's limited time offer: $50/month prepaid for unlimited data, but with big limits on video resolution and tethering.

The $50/month unlimited plan is a $10 discount from T-Mobile's regular prepaid unlimited plan ($60/month for T-Mobile Essentials Prepaid). The carrier says "video typically streams at 480p", offering no further clarification on its prepaid page.
