T-Mobile gives customers free hour of in-flight Gogo access, European roaming

0

T-Mobile has launched two initiatives for American travellers. The first is a free hour of Gogo in-flight Internet access for domestic US fliers, including what it calls “those long abused AT&T and Verizon customers”.

The offer is valid between June 24th and 26th only, but covers more than 33,000 flights. T-Mobile began offering an hour of free Gogo on June 13th but only to its own customers.

The second offer gives US residents on the firm’s Simple Choice plans free unlimited data when travelling in Europe this summer (apart from Andorra). Unfortunately, tethering isn’t allowed and speeds might be close to 128 kbps, with higher speeds only available in certain locations.

The free roaming in Europe will last from July 1st until August 31st.

The mobile operator’s T-Mobile Tuesdays free pizza via Domino’s was recently cancelled early due to massive demand. The company is now using other perks to encourage subscriber loyalty – such as contests, discounts, giveaways and even stock options.
