T-Mobile Prepaid's 5GB plan for 1 line costs $15 per month.

It rides on the T-Mobile network for coverage.

The plan includes unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 5GB of high-speed data per month. The data is shut off after you reach your high-speed allotment. You can use up to all 5GB of data as hotspot data. The data is also priority data, which means you will enjoy faster data speeds during times when the network is busy.

Video streams at 720p HD quality on this plan.

Taxes and fees are extra on this plan, and I estimate they will add another $2.52 to the price. That makes your total montly bill $17.52 per month.

Overall, I recommend the T-Mobile Connect 5GB plan because it is a good value.
