T-Mobile is hoping to keep pace with its competitors with a new budget wireless service called GoSmart Mobile.

GoSmart Mobile, which is completely separate from T-Mobile, will be available starting today at over 3,000 stores in the U.S. and offers pre-paid unlimited plans starting at $30 for unlimited voice and text. For $35 you can add 2G web browsing, and for $45 you can get 5GB of 3G data. 

You can use your own GSM device by purchasing an $8 SIM kit, or choose between an $49 Alcatel phone or a $99 ZTE Android device.

According to Reuters, T-Mobile has been testing the service out for the past few months and signed up “tens of thousands” already, well past the company’s projections.
