T-Mobile has temporarily revived their unlimited family shared data plans starting at $100 for two lines per month, and $40 per month for each additional user.

Customers on the new unlimited plan, which is open to existing and new customers, can keep their unlimited data plans for as long as they want to remain with T-Mobile, according to the company.

The new unlimited data family plan means that for a family of four, the monthly access fees would total $180—including $100 for the first two users and $40 each for additional users. The access fees are in addition to the costs of the phones on the plans.

Ever since it was created, torrent tracking site The Pirate Bay has evaded copyright holders and law enforcement. That is, until Dec. 9, when Swedish authorities reportedly seized the Stockholm servers of The Pirate Bay, effectively shutting down the site and its affiliates.

The Pirate Bay site is what is known as a torrent tracker, providing pointers to where files can be found and then downloaded with the BitTorrent protocol. Although The Pirate Bay has links to legitimate content, the site is also well-known as the Web source for pirated media content.
