T-Mobile Expands To 20 New Countries And Destinations

T-Mobile announced that it will be immediately expanding its mobile phone service to an additional 20 new countries and destinations. This not only adds new potential customers to T-Mobile, but it will allow existing users to use service in more places than ever before.

The new nations added by T-Mobile include Monaco, Albania, Belarus, Bosnia, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. T-Mobile also added five destinations including Guernsey, Alderney, Jersey, Sark, and the Isle of Man.

"We've just made your traveling even easier in 20 more destinations around the world, expanding Simple Global to cover all of Europe and all of South America," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "The carriers have made billions overcharging consumers who just want to stay connected overseas, and we've changed all that! Today, we made it even simpler to text, search or keep up on social media in a total of 145 countries and destinations, all at no extra cost!"

Now with T-Mobile's Simple Choice service, customers can use unlimited data and texting in 145 countries around the world, including all of North and South America, at no extra cost, while phone calls are charged at a rate of $0.20 per minute.

Compared to Verizon's international data costs, which vary between $25 for 100 MB and $2.05 for 1 MB, T-Mobile's mobile data service is considerably cheaper, making T-Mobile a relatively inexpensive option for users planning to travel to other countries.

    It's important to note that T-Mobule is just the USA brand of Deutsche Telecom. It's the parent company that's doing the expansion.
