Walmart Family Mobile Powered by T-Mobile doubles the 4G LTE data
 
What: Walmart Family Mobile Powered by T-Mobile already delivers Walmart’s lowest-priced wireless plans with unlimited talk, text and data on T-Mobile’s nationwide network, and starting tomorrow, April 18, those deals are getting a lot sweeter.  Customers will get up to 500MB more 4G LTE data for the same low price - that’s double the 4G LTE data on the company’s entry-level plan.  And, even better, existing customers will automatically get the extra data without lifting a finger. The updated plans are as follows: 
 
  • $29.88/month – Unlimited Talk, Text & Data with up to 1GB of 4G LTE data (up from 500MB)
  • $39.88/month – Unlimited Talk, Text & Data with up to 3GB of 4G LTE data (up from 2.5GB)
 These plans are free from restrictions like forcing customers to sign up for auto-pay or jump through other ridiculous hoops. And as usual, customers who sign up for multiple lines can save $5 off each additional line.
 
When: The updated plans are available starting Saturday, April 18.
