Escaping the USA to Europe? T-Mobile has a sweet new service for you


  • T-Mobile has added 70 new countries to its Simple Global plan.
  • The Un-carrier now offers $5 daily international data passes that provide up to 512MB of LTE data.

T-Mobile has been leading the charge on making it extremely easy for American customers to continue using their U.S.-based carrier when traveling internationally. Through a program T-Mobile calls Simple Global, Un-carrier users get unlimited 2G data and texting the moment they step into a select number of foreign countries. To make that experience even better, T-Mobile has announced that Simple Global will soon expand to 210 total countries.

But the addition of a new daily international data pass is what should excite international travelers. Instead of being stuck on a 2G network for the entirety of their trip, consumers can choose to pay $5 per day to enjoy up to 512MB of LTE data. Additionally, instead of having to pay $0.25 a minute for phone calls, users who opt for the data pass will enjoy unlimited calling.
