T-Mobile Adds Faster International Data Option with T-Mobile One Plus
T-Mobile USA announced a new plan, T-Mobile One Plus, which offers faster data roaming while abroad, as well as several other features.
The new plan, available for $25 per line on top of the standard T-Mobile One line charge, includes unlimited data roaming in multiple countries at 3G speeds. The standard T-Mobile One plan offers unlimited data roaming in those countries as well, albeit at much slower 2G speeds.
It also includes unlimited 4G LTE data when using your smartphone as a hotspot, something that is not included in the standard plan, and unlimited access to high-definition video, a feature that would cost $3 per day on the standard plan.
The faster international data service is available in over 140 countries including Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
In 2013, T-Mobile began to offer unlimited 2G data and texting in 100 countries as well as voice calls for 20 cents per minute when roaming in those countries.
