Nationwide wireless speed test gives T-Mobile and Verizon bragging rights

  • T-Mobile adds $5 LTE international data pass as free roaming spreads

To make that experience even better, T-Mobile has announced that Simple Global will soon expand to 210 total countries. For those on any T-Mobile ONE plan, customers can get unlimited data at up to 128kbps with free texting.

The Un-carrier now offers $5 daily worldwide data passes that provide up to 512MB of LTE data.


Along with the expansion of T-Mobile ONE Simple Global, there'll also be a new International Data Pass option to address that limit. In years gone by, it was a two-horse race between AT&T and Verizon, who had the biggest networks, most customers, and best wireless spectrum, while T-Mobile and Sprint desperately fought to not be in last place. Still, if you're making a shorter trip, don't have an unlocked phone, or just can't deal with the potential language hassle of buying a SIM, T-Mobile Simple Global certainly covers more than AT&T or Verizon's worldwide data passes, and its high-speed add-on is half the price, too. So the global pass will give you considerably faster data, but in a very limited amount. Simple Global is included with T-Mobile ONE, meaning you can post and text photos, look up maps online and stay connected to loved ones when traveling overseas - worry free. When you fork over the cash, the Un-carrier will give you access to 512MB of up to 4G LTE data and unlimited calls for 24 hours. If you do travel out of the country often, you might want to consider T-Mobile's Simple Global plan, which as previously noted, comes with a T-Mobile ONE subscription. Ookla says that's allowed T-Mobile to more efficiently cover a wider area while using fewer cellular sites. Ookla tested more than 2.8 million unique mobile devices during the first half of 2018 and performed over 12 million network tests through its Speedtest software. With this change, there are no additional costs to customers either. Communications with premium-rate (e.g., 900, entertainment, high-rate helpline) numbers not included. Indeed, you're looking at 2G data speeds, which means a trickling 128 Kbps or thereabouts. Usage rounded up to the nearest MB each session.
