T-Mobile launches free 2G data roaming in 100+ countries

T-Mobile’s outspoken CEO, John Legere:

The cost of staying connected across borders is completely crazy. Today’s phones are designed to work around the world, but we’re forced to pay insanely inflated international connectivity fees to actually use them. You can’t leave the country without coming home to bill shock. So we’re making the world your network – at no extra cost. 

You won’t have to activate anything or pay an extra monthly fee. Placing voice calls in roaming will set you back $.20 per minute for in-country calls. Additional terms, fine print and international services can be found on T-Mobile’s website.

Moreover, the telco announced a new $10 a month Stateside International Talk & Text feature that includes $0.20 a minute calling from the U.S. to all Simple Global countries, including mobile to mobile. In addition, the feature includes unlimited texting and unlimited landline calls to 70+ countries.

T-Mobile launches 2G data roaming in 100+ countries at no extra charge.

Revolutia „Un-carrier” continua, si ni se promite ceva si mai spectaculos data viitoare. Experimentul asta se poate termina doar in doua feluri:

– fie cu disruptia masiva a VZ, T, S si a modelului lor de business cu subventii mari si contracte scumpe si rigide (ceea ce va influenta indirect si AAPL care „ascunde” mare parte din cost in spatele subventiilor)

– fie cu falimentul lui TMUS.

Facem un straddle?
