T-Mobile announces unlimited global data roaming at no extra charge

T-Mobile has been shaking up the wireless industry for the better part of the year as part of its “Uncarrier” movement. In the spring, it announced that it would be eliminating the traditional carrier contract, and in July it was the first carrier to launch a payment plan for smartphones that lets customers upgrade their devices more often (AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint quickly followed suit with plans of their own). Today’s announcement might be the most revolutionary — international roaming charges have been one of the biggest frustrations for traveling customers. T-Mobile’s aggressive moves have helped it gain marketshare, but it is still far behind the other three carriers when it comes to user numbers. Whether or not today’s announcement will turn the tide further in T-Mobile’s favor remains to be seen, but it’s sure to make more than a few frequent travelers happy
