T-Mobile announced Friday that it was adding additional features to its Simple Choice plan.

Effective March 23, subscribers on this plan will get unlimited international texting to over 120 countries and the base amount of high-speed data in the plan has been increased from 500 MB to 1 GB.  Tethering was also added at no charge.

Both AT&T and Verizon Wireless recently added free international texting from the U.S. but that move followed T-Mobile’s earlier addition of free data roaming and texting while abroad.

T-Mobile also upped the amount of data that comes with higher-priced plans.  The 2.5 GB plan will offer 3 GB of data and the mobile operator has added a 5 GB plan as well, in addition to an unlimited plan that comes with 5 GB of data for tethering.
