Consumers traveling to South Korea for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics will get free high-speed data and unlimited calls to the U.S, as well as free texting.
T-mobile says its customers can enjoy these rewards for free from February 7 through March 20 if they will be traveling anywhere in South Korea during that time. All they have to do is use their plan.
“The Winter Games are full of unforgettable moments, and now, T-Mobile customers in South Korea can snap, tweet, and share those big moments without worrying about bill shock when they get back home,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile.
Free and unlimited data and calling will become available the moment Un-carrier subscribers step foot in South Korea, he added.
“While the carriers’ travel plans confuse, restrict and gouge customers, Un-carrier customers can simply enjoy the games in South Korea – with zero hassles or extra fees,” the company said.
T-Mobile also wants to help its customers communicate with friends and family as they make their way from the U.S. to South Korea. Free texting throughout flights as well as a free hour of smartphone Wi-Fi will be available to those traveling to see the Winter Games, thanks to T-mobile’s partnership with Gogo.
AT&T has also announced that it will give customers access to free International Day Passes for the time they are in South Korea for the 2018 Winter Games, which will give them unlimited talk and text. However, AT&T customers will have to sign up for the pass ahead of time.
