NEW YORK — Unlimited wireless data is back. After sliding off the menu of cellphone plans, data plans with no caps are making a comeback at smaller cellphone companies trying to compete with AT&T and Verizon.
On Wednesday T-Mobile USA said it will start selling an unlimited-data plan on Sept. 5. It stopped sales of its previous unlimited-data plans early last year.
T-Mobile USA is the country’s fourth-largest cellphone carrier, with 33.2 million subscribers.
On Tuesday No. 5 carrier MetroPCS Communications Inc. cut the price of its unlimited-data plan from $70 to $55 per month, as a promotion for a limited time. The plan includes unlimited texting and calls.
No. 3 carrier Sprint Nextel Corp. already has an unlimited-data plan. AP
