T-Mobile has announced many changes to its international plans that should benefit a large number of summer travelers. Most notably, as part of what they are calling their ‘Summer Unleashed' promotion, T-Mobile will provide its customer's free unlimited high-speed data (up to 4G LTE speeds) throughout Europe from July 1, 2016, through August 31, 2016.
T-Mobile customers traveling to Europe will get the highest available data speeds wherever they travel across the continent. Additionally, as usual, texting will be free around the globe with T-Mobile, and calls are just 20 cents a minute throughout Europe and dozens of other destinations.
However, T-Mobile did not stop there.
Anyone travelling this weekend, June 24 through June 26, 2016, including Verizon and AT&T customers, will receive a full free hour of Wi-Fi on all Gogo-equipped domestic flights. That is right, you do not have to be a T-Mobile customer to be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi on domestic flights this weekend, it'll work on any smartphone. You may take advantage of the free hour on as many flights as you want.
On the other hand, T-Mobile has announced that the country of Belize is joining the long list of 140+ countries and destinations where their Simple Choice customers get unlimited data and texting and low, flat-rate calling while travelling abroad. According to T-Mobile, the addition of Belize to this list means that their customers can now visit all 20 countries in South and Central America, from the tip of Patagonia in Chile to that scuba spot in Belize, and never have to worry about data roaming or texting charges. Nice!
As an AT&T customer, I do hope they are forced to soon provide similar international plans and benefits to what T-Mobile offers their customers. Otherwise, I might have to soon consider changing mobile phone carrier for the first time in my life.
