T-Mobile changed the plan, it looks better now.
This new plan only replaces the current "Simple Choice Unlimited LTE" plan ($95 + $75 + $55...). The 2GB & 6GB Simple Choice plans will remain (for now).
If you want to sign up for the current "Simple Choice Unlimited LTE" plan ($95 + $75 + $55...), you have until 9/5/2016 to do it.
As far as how good this plan is, it all depends on the customer. If you're a customer that uses a lot of LTE on your smartphone, rarely tethers, rarely watches streaming video off Wi-Fi (or doesn't mind 480p), then this plan can save you around $25/line/mo (which can add up fast if you have multiple lines). If you're a customer that tethers and watches streaming video on your phone off Wi-Fi frequently, then the older plan may give you more "bang for the buck". Don't forget T-Mobile is still keeping their Simple Choice 2GB & 6GB option... this new plan will be cheaper than T-Mobile's current Simple Choice 10GB.
As far as how good T-Mobile's network is, it all depends on where the customer travels. If you generally travel to locations where T-Mobile has decent coverage, then you may not need to pay for service with Verizon or AT&T... why pay for more coverage that you'll never/rarely use? If you travel all around the U.S. (especially rural areas) and you insist on only having 1 cell phone, then Verizon or AT&T will give you more coverage (but still won't cover every location in the U.S.).

Click for the current state of wireless networks in the US. The results may shock a lot of people. Definite must-read.
The Fine Print:
Data may be de-prioritized after 26GB - De-prioritized means you get slowed down enough so that customers who haven't hit the 28GB limit get LTE speeds IF and ONLY IF the cell phone tower is at maximum capacity. (throttling slows you down 24/7, whether the tower is at capacity or not)
Video is downgraded to 480p
Tethering is unlimited at 128k
$15 to add a 5GB LTE spped data tethering bucket - Customer service wasn't sure whether the data would sit in the bucket for a year like Data Stash, or just 30 days like regular On-Demand data.
$25/mo to remove 480p video throttling - per line - unless held close to your face the difference is minor on a phone, but becomes noticeable on a tablet
$20/mo "tablets" - Customer service was unable to say whether the plan could be applied to hotspots (as in the physical, not phone, kind) Currently SIMs are swappable between tablets and hotspots.
Current plans can be kept "forever" . That said, they've also said they want to eventually move all customers to the new plans. In the past that has meant a specially discounted version of the current offering that offered more than the grandfathered plan.
