T-Mobile has just provided a nearly invaluable incentive to get abroad this summer. The mobile carrier is offering unlimited free data throughout Europe until the end of the season. That may not seem like a huge deal, but it definitely is.
Typically, if you’re a United States customer who’s going abroad, you should basically just leave your cell phone at home. If you actually want to take your daily companion with you and live like a normal modern person, you typically have three options. First, you could just pay for the data hit (which will be monstrous), Second, you could carry your phone around with you and just buy a Euro burner. Of course, your cell will still be useless and your burner will likely be a total piece. The third option is to run to a local cell phone store, buy a new SIM card, and drop it in your phone. That’s still on the pricey end of things and you won’t be able to make calls, but you can use your data.
With T-Mobile’s plan, though, you don’t have to think about any of that. Just bring your phone with you as you head to exotic locations across the pond. What could be easier?
