T-Mobile might launch an expensive new international roaming plan on November 9th

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

International roaming used to be catastrophically expensive 100% of the time, but it's slightly less so now. T-Mobile helped pave the way for that when it started offering free 2G roaming in most countries. Leaked documents indicate that Tmo is planning a new add-on for its One plans that gives you unlimited international roaming, but it's spendy.

According to the leaked documents, T-Mobile will announce the new Global Plus plan option tomorrow (November 9th).

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018

T-Mobile was the first US carrier to really push the idea of free international roaming. although the data speeds have always been terrible. Still, your T-Mobile phone works in other countries, which is more than you could say a few years ago. Now, Tmo has expanded free roaming to even more countries, and there's a cheaper option if you want LTE data while traveling the world.

Before this announcement, T-Mobile offered free international roaming in 140 countries around the world.

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

Project Fi users around the world have reported on Reddit that they are being disconnected from roaming networks after 30-60 seconds of activity, starting late Friday, Pacific Standard Time.

Given that mobile phones are a vital lifeline for travelers, particularly when navigating language barriers, roaming outages have the potential to be a distinctly harrowing experience.

T-Mobile Will Limit LTE Roaming in Canada and Mexico to 5GB starting November 12

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

One of T-Mobile's big "uncarrier" moves was to offer international roaming data to most customers for free. However, Canada and Mexico were special cases where you'd get full-speed LTE data on most plans. There wasn't any special limit on that data, which was remarkably generous—too generous, it would seem. T-Mobile is rolling that feature back and limiting LTE to 5GB per month in those countries.

Starting on November 12th, T-Mobile is altering its "Mobile without Borders" program for all customers on One, Simple Choice, and other legacy plans with roaming.

EU legislation abolishing roaming charges finally comes into effect today

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

In February this year, it was announced that new EU legislation would abolish roaming charges. Citizens of EU member states, as with anywhere else, have always had to pay exorbitant fees to use their mobiles abroad. Each country has certain networks that offer better roaming deals, but on average the costs have been immense. Thankfully, that all stops today, as the new 'Roam like at Home' law comes into effect.

EU citizens will now be able to call, send texts, and use mobile data in any of the 28 countries of the European Union at no extra cost.

Sprint expands international roaming to 165 countries with free ‘basic’ data, free texts, and $0.20/min calls, revamps high-speed data

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Free or cheap international service is something many US carriers have been doing lately. Not having to buy a separate SIM card when you travel abroad is a very nice convenience, even if some aspects of your plan suffer a bit. Today, Sprint has announced that it's ramping up its international service to 165 countries, as well as some other new tidbits.

The headline feature here is that big 165 number, which Sprint is quick to point out is superior to the "only" 145 countries that T-Mobile sports.
