T-Mobile giving everyone, including non-T-Mo customers, free in-flight Wi-Fi on Labor Day

Lots of people will be traveling this Labor Day weekend, and so T-Mobile is hoping to make that travel smoother with free Wi-Fi.

On Monday, September 3rd, T-Mobile is giving everyone 30 minutes of free Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi. This offer will be available for smartphones on all Gogo-equipped domestic flights, and everyone can get it, even those people not on T-Mobile.

With this offer, T-Mobile is hoping to give non-T-Mo customers a taste of what it has to offer. The T-Mobile One plan comes with free in-flight messaging and one hour of free smartphone Wi-Fi, and subscribers who get the T-Mobile One Plus add-on get unlimited in-flight Wi-Fi on Gogo-enabled flights to, from, and within the U.S.

Existing T-Mobile customers are used to having free in-flight Wi-Fi, but this is a nice gift for those non-T-Mo folk that should make their Labor Day plane ride a bit better. If you’re on a T-Mobile One plan, do you use the free in-flight Wi-Fi perk?

    Everyone, including non-T-Mo customers, who are NOT on United flights. United doesn’t honor the free T-Mo wi-fi. :(

      Neither does Southwest. Think they both use their own proprietary WiFi services.

        United uses Gogo. So it’s just plain greed on their part. Thanks for the heads up on Southwest.

          I used it on Southwest Airlines, It worked perfectly fine for me. It even greeted me with a T-Mobile webpage. All I had to do is agree to their terms, then boom I am on their wifi. This only will work when you are at least 30,000 feet in the air.

          Not true they don’t use Gogo

        • Leo Ang Jr

          Who doesn’t use Gogo, @Shibby? Southwest or United?

        • Shibby

          American, Southwest, United except on a few old planes hasown system. Alaska has viasat on all former Virgin too.

        • Jesse Wilson

          It’s listed on their website that they do use gogo, do research before jumping to assumptions. Some planes support it some don’t.

        • Shibby

          Most don’t do you actually fly them? Not listed on Gogo own site

      • Steve

        I fly Southwest exclusively on a monthly basis and they do NOT use Gogo on any of their 737 aircraft. Having said that, they only charge $8 for their wifi which is good for the ENTIRE day. Every other airline is basically a hit or miss on the pricing but no one comes close to even $8 for an entire flight.

        • Trevnerdio

          Yeah I just flew SW a couple of weekends ago and got no WiFi love through T-Mobile. Could only watch live TV (not complaining about that though!)

    • Phone Guy

      Some UA flights are GOGO and some are not– a different system. Were you on a GOGO flight?

  • Shibby

    Unfortunately Gogo seems to have lost out to Viasat and airline’s own systems. It’s been unusable from a speed standpoint for a while now so this was expected. I wish TMO found a new way to offer on more flights!

    If only they offered it to ALL T-Mobile customers first.
