T-Mobile Doubles Data Allowance and Makes Video Free
Starting Sunday, the new “Binge On” feature offers video from a variety of services including HBO, Hulu, Netflix, Showtime, and Sling TV that will not count against a customer’s high-speed data usage.
The self-proclaimed Un-Carrier is also doubling the amount of data available with each plan at no extra charge – for example from 1 GB per month to 2 – as well as doubling the amount of tethered data from 7 GB to 14 GB. Business customers with up to 1,000 employees will also receive double the amount of data with the new program.
“Today, we’re not only doubling your data in Simple Choice, we’re making your data work a lot harder for you,” said John Legere, the company’s CEO, in a statement. “T-Mobile is un-leashing entertainment and giving customers exactly what they want.”
Both the increased data and free video streaming are being made available to all customers on Simple Choice plans automatically and at no additional cost. The complete list of streaming services includes Crackle, Encore, ESPN, Fox Sports, Fox Sports Go, HBO Now, HBO Go, Hulu, MLB, Movieplex, NBC Sports, Netflix, Sling TV, Sling Box, Showtime, Starz, T-Mobile TV, Univision Deportes, Ustream, Vessel, Vevo, and Vudu, and the company plans to add additional services in the near future.
