After years and years of repeatedly and regularly pushing the boundaries of the stagnant US wireless industry (and the buds of its arch-rivals in the process), T-Mobile may have been getting a little lazy lately, shifting its focus almost entirely from unmatched users. benefits for network upgrades, many of which: not exactly easy to experience.
The international 5G war has begun
If you are a Magenta Max or Business Unlimited Ultimate subscriber, you get 5 gigs of free (!!!) “high-speed” data every month for use in 210+ (!!!!!) “countries and destinations” from June 21st with absolutely no hoops to jump through and no passes (cough, AT&T, cough).
While 5G speeds are clearly not guaranteed in any of these international markets, this new advantage will likely prove to be much more convenient than what T-Mo’s competition offers outside the US, and predictably, it’s not all that the “Un- carrier” will launch on June 21.
That may not sound like a staggering number, but it’s a 100 percent upgrade, and T-Mobile assures you it’ll be enough to meet your “basic navigation and email” needs from the moment you land. gets into a foreign area.
The travel benefits don’t stop there
Because T-Mobile knows that the perfect vacation starts with a nice, relaxing and entertaining flight, its wireless service will also reach the largest US carriers on June 21 for non-stop texting, browsing, emailing and even streaming.
That’s right, the “Un-carrier” covers your entire flight for free…if you’re a Magenta Max or Business Unlimited Ultimate subscriber, starting with “select” Delta, American and Alaska Airlines flights and expanding soon also for United Airlines.
The offer drops to free connectivity for all flights on four flights of your choice per year and then a free hour on all subsequent flights if you’re a regular Magenta or Business Unlimited Advanced customer, which isn’t too bad either.
With this benefit, T-Mo essentially aims to make your car journeys as safe as your air travel entertaining, and somewhat related, you can also buy cheap(er) gasoline with increased Shell discounts of 25 cents per gallon (up to 20 gallons) every Tuesday from next week through “Labor Day week.”
