The holiday season is fast approaching and many people like to vacation in a different country, like by escaping to someplace warm. T-Mobile’s new offer will come in handy for anyone traveling in the final months of 2016, letting them share and stay connected without worry about running out of high-speed data.

  • T-Mobile going downhill.

    T-Mobile you haven’t been providing much of anything this year. Your service still suck, new promotions only to new customers. And all these JOD BS and don’t stand by what you advertise.

    • Trevnerdio

      What exactly is your issue with JOD? It’s a great program. And service is quickly not sucking. Lastly, talk to loyalty. They’ll treat you like a new customer real quick.

    • Bradley Karas

      Where do you live?

    • Acdc1a

      Promos are limited to new plans, not new customers. Get with it!

    • Richard Roma

      JOD definitely got the shaft this year. I got out of them and just purchased the handsets directly, so no soup for T-Mobile .

    • JLV90

      This promo is for all T-mobile customers that have international roaming as a part of their plan.

    • Phone Guy

      Switch to at&t and go away then. They will buy out your T-Mobile phones and contract, etc. Please do it. Watch your wallet.

      Hold this L.

    No love for the carribean?

    • Acdc1a

      It took them years to even get an agreement in the Bahamas…I wouldn’t hold my breath for free unlimited LTE.

    • Jimmy1974

      I know right most people on the east coast take vacation to the Caribbean not Europe

  • Jon

    Just in time for my trip to Europe!

    • Arnold Shoon

      And my Thanksgiving planned in Colombia

      • ChitChatCat

        I’m heading to Colombia on the 5th. This is great news and will save me having to deal with a local carrier. #score

  • Richard Roma

    Europe? A quarter of the countries are missing… Seriously, how much would it have cost them to include all of them..

    Greece for example is bankrupt, they can literally purchase an entire carrier there in lieu of paying any data bill.

    • Phone Guy

      T-Mobile buys “buckets” of data in foreign countries, and it often goes unused. They analyze their projected traffic (how often typical T-Mobile customers go to Europe say in December, November) and they are simply using up the bucket. at&t customer do more business as more companies use at&t. I read this once in an article from John Legere. Greece, for example, may be a much smaller bucket. T-Mobile may have already negotiated a smaller bucket so they have no need to give this data away as there may be little remaining at the end of the month. They still offer the super cheap 4GLTE extension plans for those countries while you travel. Everything is simply not free. Sounds so Bernie Sanders.

      • AM Gone

        As a frequent business traveler to Europe including Greece, Norway, UK, Spain, Italy, Sicily and Portugal, I don’t know where you get the idea that 4GLTE is available via TM US in Europe. The best that I have ever seen using my unlocked TM US phone is some slow a$$ 3G. Free yes, painful yes. Get your phone unlocked and get a local SIM card where the data is a bit faster but still little to no 4G unless you travel to Germany. Safe travels to all.

  • Omar Cardenas

    People just like to bch about everything try using At&t or Verizon in those places haha i wanna see your face when you come home to a 3 thousand dollar bill. At least tmobile is offering free data .

  • pda96

    Perfect timing! I’m heading to Europe this winter. Thanks, TMO!!

  • Ray

    Well I planned my Europe trip well… Went to Europe two weeks after the summer promo ended. Ohh well, I was rocking 3g speeds most of the time.

  • Chuan Ren

    Just came back from Europe, the plan is really great, except the data in Switzerland is 2G, but fast enough to use GMap and VOIP calls. In Austria, it’s 2G and slow. But in Italy, it’s already 4G and super fast. And other countries like France, it’s connects as 4G already most of the time.

    • pda96

      Hey Chuan,
      So did u have to do anything prior to your trip? U had to turn on “data roaming”, correct? Thanks.

      • Chuan Ren

        Yes, you need to make sure to turn on roaming on your phone, and make sure T-Mobile does not block international roaming(default is on). No other steps needed for me.

  • Jason Caprio

    Kind of Ironic that Poland isn’t on the list, despite the fact that Poland has their own T-Mobile. http://www.t-mobile.pl/

  • Dan’s the Man

    Not France?

  • Adam

    This is great news for reporters on T-Mobile covering international politics. Too bad if a reporter tries to use their data while covering a US debate, they will be “escorted out of the building”.

  • Mark

    Awesome news! I’m on an inaugural flight to Denmark now and the goodies haven’t stopped coming.

  • fromtheright

    Actually Simple Choice was 3G plus, smokin’ fast, in Spain and Portugal in September. Faster than I get T-Mobile in Oklahoma.

  • David Hamann

    This is simply fantastic and a reason I switched to T-Mobile the day they announced free international. I spent 6 weeks in Europe this summer and it was amazing to have no data cap. I am on my way back this weekend for a few weeks and so happy this promotion is still going on.

    • pda96

      I’ll be going to Italy this Thanksgiving. So u got 4G data during your trip? And it was totally free? I supposed “data roaming” has to be switched on? Thanks.

  • I still find them inspiring! T- mobile proves their service the best future for us!
