Mobile Introduces $5/Day International Pass With 512MB of LTE Data

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

Today, T-Mobile announced it's expanding it's Unlimited plan benefits by adding 70 more countries where customers get unlimited data (albeit slow 2G data speeds). The additions are to the T-Mobile ONE plan and the carrier's Simple Global roaming package, which as of July 22 will cover "over 210 countries and destinations" according to the carrier.

Simple Global began with North America, but expanded to Europe and South America back in late 2015. Calls are billed per minute but at lower rates in supported countries. There are, however, some caveats.

T-Mobile was the first United States carrier to really push the idea of free global roaming. although the data speeds have always been awful. That means as much 2G data as you can use (not much) and free SMS. Enough to pull down your email and such, but certainly not for streaming music or anything more data intensive. The new T-Mobile International Data Pass will be available starting on August 1st (check out the image at the top of this article), and the new countries get added to Simple Global on July 22nd. Customers also get unlimited texts in these locations for free. It's still included in T-Mobile ONE plans at no charge and allows for unlimited texting and 2G data when overseas, as well as $0.25/min flat rate calling. In any of these 210 countries or destinations, customers can pay $5 a day for 512MB of 4G LTE and unlimited calling in that 24 hour period.
