"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. For example, we do not know if this prepaid plan includes 5GB of 4G LTE in Canada and Mexico, free in-flight Gogo Wi-Fi, or unlimited streaming from certain services.
