Via an official statement in its website, the third biggest mobile operator in the country is announcing that it has decided to limit LTE roaming for its subscribers traveling to Canada and Mexico starting on November 12th. The cap will be at 5 gigabytes each month, and while it is true that T-Mobile will not be charging for overages, mobile users will have to expect connection speeds as sleepy as 128 kbps if they go beyond the 5 gigabyte limit per month.
Always Online Wireless (AOW) is a service provider that specializes in offering on demand LTE data plans, and just recently, the company has decided to launch a new AOW Global Data SIM card. What exactly does this SIM card do? For starters, it provides frequent travelers to countries outside the United States with easy access to 4G LTE data on their mobile devices.
Just this week, Sprint has revealed that it will be offering basic data and text messaging, absolutely free of charge, in 165 locations across the globe. On top of this, the major US wireless carrier is also offering voice calls at a price of $0.20 a minute. Moreover, its subscribers are also free to buy LTE high speed data directly from their mobile device, even without having to place a phone call to customer service support.
Many agree that traveling to other countries is fun -- well except when you have to deal with roaming charges (which can be often borderline exorbitant). But Tink Labs, a firm from Hong Kong, is offering a solution to this problem -- specifically by providing custom made handsets in hotel rooms around the world specially for travelers. These phones would then come with free data, which means that guests can make full use of them when going online, and yup, not worry about roaming fees.
AT&T has no shortage of international roaming plans. But for its subscribers who frequently travel to other countries, they have plenty of reason to want a little more than what the major US wireless carrier is currently offering. Indeed, the Passport international rate plans that the company had announced more than a couple of years ago do offer some data, but unfortunately for travelers, it is not very much, even at the highest tier option. Some are even saying that it is cheaper to just unlock one’s device and make full use of a SIM card (with travel happy inclusions) instead.
T-Mobile has decided to extend its popular Brazil Unleashed and Summer Unleashed international offers until the end of this year. Plus, the third biggest wireless carrier in America is also expanding its Brazil Unleashed promo to the entire South American region. Starting on October 1st, T-Mobile’s postpaid subscribers will be able to enjoy access to unlimited high speed data throughout 19 European countries, as well as 14 destinations in South America.
Those subscribers of T-Mobile who can’t get enough of the Olympics experience may want to check out the major US wireless carrier’s latest announcement. T-Mobile has decided to extend its Brazil Unleashed deal in Rio to include the 2016 Paralympic Games, which happens in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from September 7th until September 18th of this year. In other words, subscribers of any one of T-Mobile’s Simple Choice postpaid plans can get to enjoy unlimited high speed data, absolutely free of charge, in Brazil throughout the Rio Paralympics.
Sprint has decided to expand its Open World travel add-on by adding unlimited high speed data in Brazil (albeit only temporarily). Why, you ask? This is all in joining in on the spirit of the Rio Olympic Games to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this year. Excitement for the Olympics is about to reach fever pitch and for subscribers of Sprint, it is good to know that the major US wireless carrier is now competing against the likes of AT&T and T-Mobile in offering a roaming deal for those who are looking to be part of the 31st Olympic Games.
T-Mobile is promising to bring unlimited LTE data to this summer’s highly awaited Olympic games happening in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Indeed, the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States has announced that it will provide postpaid subscribers under any Simple Choice plan with unlimited high speed data, as well as voice calls and text messaging absolutely free of charge, while they are attending the 31st Olympics in the Marvelous City.
Project Fi, the wireless service from Google, can already be used by American mobile users when traveling to other countries. By using Project Fi abroad, these users need not avail of international plans that could prove costly. And now, Google is giving Project Fi using travelers even more reason to rejoice by boosting its wireless service’s international data speeds.
