If you’re one of the 2.5M Americans planning a European vacation this summer, T-Mobile has a pretty sweet deal for its Simple Choice customers: free unlimited speed data throughout July and August, up from the normal 128Kbps limit.
The Un-carrier today announced it’s unleashing summer travel, giving customers unlimited high-speed data, up to 4G LTE speeds, throughout Europe all summer long […]
Starting July 1st all the way through August 31st, T-Mobile’s giving Simple Choice customers unlimited high-speed data across all of Europe (except Andorra) – all at absolutely no additional cost – so you can share, Skype, snap and scope every moment of your European holiday …
Given that normal data roaming can easily see people racking up three figure costs during a trip, a price of $0.00 per GB is hard to resist. Texting is free around the world, and call costs within Europe are 20 cents a minute. Belize is also joining the Simple Choice plan from July 1st.
Unlike many such deals, there doesn’t appear to be too much small-print with this one. The only conditions are that you can’t tether, you are normally based in the U.S. and there’s the usual unspecified disclaimer about terminating it for ‘excessive use.’
For those not travelling quite so far, T-Mobile is also offering an hour’s free Gogo WiFi service on domestic flights this weekend. You don’t even have to be a T-Mobile customer for that one – the offer also applies to AT&T and Verizon customers. The deal runs from June 24-26 inclusive.
