US prepaid data is competitive only with T-Mobile
said by Telco:WTF is that? What is "¢/min", minutes of what?
The problem with tmobile is that their plans are not competitive and their network is stuck on frequencies used by nobody but themselves. This enormous limitation has prevented a lot of people from switching.
$100 10¢/min 1 year
$50 13¢/min 90 days
$30 19¢/min 90 days
$10 33¢/min 90 days
If you're talking about GSM Voice and Sprint-like slow data, then T-Mobile USA has the very same frequencies that AT&T and any other GSM provider in North America has; supported by all iPhones and nearly any GSM world phone. It's more difficult to find a phone that wouldn't support it, than the other way around.
Personally, I have their 5GB@4G plan for 30$/30days, with a Galaxy Nexus from Google for ~350$; getting great speeds and can't complain about coverage; price is as good as it gets in North America!
AT&T doesn't even come close as far as competitiveness goes! StraightTalk, maybe; but their ToS prohibits just about anything: »[StraightTalk] T&C prohibit streaming, app shops [legal][TC].
