This morning, T-Mobile officially rolled out its replacement for the venerable T-Zones portal and service in the new web2go portal and service. Â web2go is heavily based on T-Mobile International’s hugely successful web n’ walk full access mobile internet service for customers, but it also reflects the cost of the network expansion and upgrade to 3G services.
web2goÂ features an improved web browsing interface that is closer to PC browsing and supports tabbed pages along with bookmarks and integrated Yahoo search.
Unlimited access is no longer offered on web2go data plans for standard handsets and the Shadow, with the $19.99 monthly add-on buying 100 MB of data per month with unlimited messaging, or 50 MB and 200 messages for $9.99. Â T-Mobile Smartphone data plans have also been increased from the former $19.99 rate to $34.99 with unlimited messaging and data or $24.99 with unlimited data and 400 messages while removing free Wi-Fi access and selling it as a separate add-on for $9.99.
T-Mobile has also included a disclaimer with all data plans informing users that it will take proactive steps to maintain data network stability and integrity by throttling users who excessively use the network, up to and including termination of service if the usage is found to be detrimental.
