Mobile adds $5 LTE worldwide data pass as free roaming spreads

T-Mobile adds $5 LTE international data pass as free roaming spreads T-Mobile beefs up its unlimited data plans with 70 more countries covered
Emmett Howard | 20 July, 2018, 17:42

For those on any T-Mobile ONE plan, customers can get unlimited data at up to 128kbps with free texting.

As it stands now, T-Mobile has the best pricing for these data passes and the most countries covered. This is where the global data pass comes in.

This press release features multimedia. Verizon was fastest in 45 of the 100 cities and Washington, D.C., while T-Mobile had the top spot in 33, AT&T in 12 and Sprint, five.

T-Mobile also says that global calling is just $0.25 per minute, which is actually a price hike. Simple Global is included with T-Mobile ONE, meaning you can post and text photos, look up maps online and stay connected to loved ones when traveling overseas - worry free. "With the race to 5G, ongoing legislative debate around network neutrality, and the landmark mergers of Sprint and T-Mobile and AT&T and Time Warner, the evolution in the consumer's experience (and its extracted data) over the next few years will be fascinating". Well, you've got no choice - they decide FOR you, taking more of your money when you travel internationally.

Verizon, for example, routinely comes up as the fastest network in road-tests of the four carriers, so it prefers to look at that data and emphasize its coverage, rather than average speed.

T-Mobile adds $5 LTE international data pass as free roaming spreads

T-Mobile expanded on its worldwide coverage today by adding another 70 countries to the list of places you can take your T-Mobile ONE plan without charge.

T-Mobile is the last of the so-called Big Four carriers in the United States to introduce a high-speed data pass for worldwide roaming and it comes with somewhat of a bang. To get your passes, simply log into the T-Mobile app or call Customer Care.

By purchasing an International Data Pass for only $5 a day, T-Mobile ONE subscribers can use 512MB of LTE data daily, with unlimited text and talk.

The additional Simple Global countries will go into effect July 22nd, while the $5 data passes will be available starting August 1st.

T-Mobile's performance in Ookla's testing benefited from the carrier's effort to build out its LTE network using the 600Mz spectrum.
