If you use a lot of data on T-Mobile's network, you may find today's news a welcome sight.

The wireless company has quietly raised the amount of data you can use in a billing cycle from 28GB to 30GB before you are at risk of having your connection speed slowed down.

The change was first reported by TMONews.

Over the course of the last few weeks, we've heard a lot about unlimited data plans. Verizon announced a new unlimited plan which kicked off changes T-Mobile and Sprint's long-standing unlimited plans. After a failed first attempt to get its unlimited data plan right, AT&T later announced a more competitive (yet still more expensive) unlimited data plan of its own.

T-Mobile's increase isn't a response to increased competition, as already offered the highest data allotment among the four carriers. Instead, the company adjusts the threshold every quarter based on network performance and usage.
