T-Mobile confirms in-house GoSmart Mobile prepaid service to launch next year

After recent leaks outed T-Mobile’s plans to unleash its own dedicated prepaid service, the carrier officially shed the curtains of secrecy and revealed its low-cost GoSmart Mobile network. Ole’ Magenta announced today that it has already begun trialing the network, offering a selection of three prepaid-only plans. $30 per month will get you unlimited calling and texting. Throw in an extra $5 and you’ll also get unlimited 2G data, while faster 3G speeds will set you back $45. Unfortunately, users with the 3G data plan will still have their speeds throttled after 5GB, similar to T-Mobile’s own offerings.

It remains unclear as to how T-Mobile plans to balance its prepaid network with newly acquired MetroPCS, though the carrier will have plenty of time to figure it out considering GoSmart Mobile isn’t slated to make its nationwide launch until 2013.

    I just got a Nexus 4 from a T-Mobile store yesterday. I didn’t want to wait 2 months for Google so I called my local store and they had 10 in stock! Bailed on on my plans that day and bought it. Truly an amazing phone and I’m lucky as hell to get it. The staff didn’t even know they had stock.
