T-Mobile will quietly hike prices to Verizon levels | BGR

The hotspot data and HD video streaming are both perks that you get with Verizon’s base plan, and are arguably necessities for heavy users.

Four lines on T-Mobile is $160, whereas Verizon is $180. But add $10 per line for the One Plus promo, and T-Mobile is the same price for one line, and $20 a month more expensive for a family of four.
