T-Mobile expands wireless coverage across Canada and Mexico without charges2015-07-09 09:37 by Daniela
T-Mobile today announced a massive expansion of its first Un-carrier move, Simple Choice, extending coverage and calling across the U.S., Mexico & Canada for all Simple Choice customers at no extra charge. Called "Mobile without Borders," this first-of-its-kind move delivers calling to both land lines and mobile phones − as well as 4G LTE data straight from your plan − across all three countries at no additional cost.
The move eliminates a major pain point for U.S. wireless customers. Last year, a full 35% of all international calls and 55% of all international travel from the U.S. was to Mexico & Canada alone. Over 70% of international trips taken by small and mid-sized business travelers were to Mexico & Canada. And, the same year, the carriers raked in nearly $10 billion in global roaming charges at over 90% margins.
Mobile without Borders provides a simpler, saner way to connect—everything's covered. Using your phone throughout Mexico & Canada is as easy as driving across the border. It's simple and doesn't cost you a penny more to talk, text and access your 4G LTE data just like home.
Beginning July 15th, calls to, from and between the U.S., Mexico & Canada − whether mobile or landline − are included in T-Mobile's latest plans at no extra charge. And, when you're in Mexico & Canada, you'll use 4G LTE data straight from your Simple Choice 4G LTE data plan.
Everyone's eligible, including Simple Choice postpaid and prepaid customers. Starting next Wednesday, every new Simple Choice customer will automatically get Mexico & Canada included in their plan at no extra charge. Current Simple Choice customers can simply opt-in online, by phone, or in-store by switching to our latest plans for free. Business customers can also add coverage and calling across North America to their Simple Choice plan at no extra cost for the first 10 lines and only $1 a month for each line beyond that.
