T-Mobile has entered the music streaming game with a price and a package of features that sets it apart.

The world's fourth-ranked mobile carrier says customers of its Simple Choice plan will be able to stream music from popular services like Pandora, Spotify, Rhapsody, iHeartRadio, iTunes Radio and Slacker without it counting against their high-speed data caps.

It has also unveiled a new service called unRadio that features streaming internet radio without ads. The service provided by Rhapsody lets users skip tracks an unlimited number of times and download 25 songs to the device for playback.

T-Mobile's highest-tier customers will get unRadio for free. It is four dollars (£2.30) a month for other T-Mobile subscribers and five dollars (£2.95) a month otherwise.
