T-Mobile Launches Unlimited Data/Text Worldwide

T-Mobile US announced unlimited global data at no extra charge in 100+ countries, effectively ending its international roaming charges.

In effect, T-Mobile is expanding the home data coverage for most of its U.S. customers on the Simple Choice plan so as to include more than 100 countries, at no extra charge. The company said that, Starting Oct. 31, these Simple Choice individual and business customers automatically get unlimited data and texting in more than 100 Simple Global countries worldwide, and they will pay a global flat rate of 20 cents per minute for voice calls when roaming in the same countries.

"The cost of staying connected across borders is completely crazy," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile US, Inc. "Today's phones are designed to work around the world, but we're forced to pay insanely inflated international connectivity fees to actually use them. You can't leave the country without coming home to bill shock. So we're making the world your network - at no extra cost."

The company announced tonight its new Stateside International Talk & Text feature for discounted calling and texting from the U.S. to all Simple Global countries. Customers never pay more than 20 cents a minute to any number in any Simple Global country, including mobile to mobile. Calls to landlines in more than 70 of these countries are unlimited and included at no extra cost. Unlimited texting is also included to all countries. Stateside International Talk & Text is available to most Simple Choice customers for $10 a month.

T-Mobile also announced that its 4G LTE network now reaches over 200 million people in 233 metros across the United States.

"We've not only delivered nationwide 4G LTE months ahead of schedule," said Neville Ray, chief technology officer for T-Mobile. "Our nationwide 4G LTE is right on top of our already nationwide 4G HSPA+ network - which translates to one wicked-fast combined 4G network experience."
