Looking for a mobile phone provider who caters to the needs of travelers? For all the people that said yes, T-Mobile is the company they should be looking into. It has just recently been announced that T-Mobile customers can now stay online while they are on holiday no matter where they travel this summer. This is because the operator has finally introduced the Internet and Broadband Travel Booster. This is a deal that starts as low as £1.
Recently, operators have been catching a lot of heat from watchdogs and consumer groups about slashing their call and internet roaming rates. T-Mobile has chosen to go a step beyond this. They are offering a service that covers the entire world.
Apparently, whenever a consumer logs onto the net via their smartphone or mobile device when abroad, they will be redirected to a web page where they can buy a booster that will prevent them from racking up those roaming charges. Deals start as low as £1, which would include 3MB of data in Europe, but can reach as high as £280, which would be 50MB of data for Brazil and Cuba.
Anyone who is looking forward to this service will not have to wait long. Apparently, T-Mobile is going to start offering this service on June 19 (today). The cost of using the travel booster will either be added to the consumer’s monthly bill or deducted from a consumer’s “pay as you go” plan. Either way, for people who like to travel a lot, this could be a deal that saves the a ton of money.
