T-Mobile Adds Free AAA and In-flight Connectivity
T-Mobile announced today Coverage Beyond, which expands coverage and keeps customers connected on flights and in 210+ countries and destinations. Plus, select customers can now get a year of AAA for free.
Coverage Beyond offers free high-speed data in 210+ countries and destinations and free in-flight connectivity and streaming all flight long on the biggest U.S. airlines. And T-Mobile is flexing its post-merger scale to negotiate exclusive benefits just for T-Mobile customers, like AAA on Us for a full year, 25 cents off per gallon of Shell gas through the week of Labor Day, and launching T-Mobile TRAVEL with Priceline to hook up customers with exclusive deals, up to 40% off select hotels and rental cars..
T-Mobile customers can get a FREE year of AAA Classic or Basic membership starting June 21. That means free 24-hour roadside assistance including towing, flat tire service, battery service and more for all T-Mobile Magenta, Magenta MAX and eligible small business customers. So say goodbye to road trip woes and hit Route 66 without worry.
Coverage Beyond: High-Speed Data Worldwide
T-Mobile customers get the same experience of 5GB of high-speed data in 11 European countries — Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania and Slovakia — on Magenta, most business plans and equivalent Sprint plans thanks to T-Mobile’s partnership with Deutsche Telekom. Essentially, everywhere a phone says “T-Mobile” customers will get the highest speeds available for their plan.
And T-Mobile is doubling the speeds worldwide across all 210+ countries and destinations (from 128kbps to 256kbps) so customers’ phones just work from the moment they touch down for things like basic navigation and email. This is in addition to the free texting customers already enjoy in those destinations. And it all comes on top of 5GB of high-speed data and free calling and texting for Magenta, Magenta MAX and eligible T-Mobile for Business customers in Mexico and Canada.
Coverage Beyond: Free In-flight Connectivity
T-Mobile is working with in-flight Wi-Fi providers to give customers free connectivity WITH streaming all flight long on the biggest U.S. airlines. Delta, American and Alaska Airlines will launch first on select flights starting June 21. United Airlines will follow. And T-Mobile will continue to work hard to keep customers covered on even more airlines over time. This means T-Mobile customers are connected overseas and now in America’s skyways … at no extra cost.
In addition to texting, browsing and emailing on your phone, T-Mobile customers can also stream, where available, all flight long too. Meaning customers can watch all the streaming services they get for free or at a discount with T-Mobile – like MLB.tv, Netflix, Paramount+, Philo, YouTube TV and more.
Coverage Beyond includes:
- Free connection all flight long on EVERY flight with Magenta MAX, Business Unlimited Ultimate and equivalent Sprint plans.
- Free connection all flight long on four flights the customer chooses per year, with a free hour for every flight after that with Magenta, Business Unlimited Advanced and equivalent Sprint plans.
