T-Mobile extends free unlimited 4G LTE for Rio 2016 offer to cover the 2016 Paralympics
A few weeks ago, T-Mobile kicked off a free roaming program that allowed those attending the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio to freely use 4G LTE data in Brazil until the end of August.
Earlier today, the Magenta carrier announced that it is expanding this offer until September 18th so as to cover the Paralympic Games, which take place between September 7 and September 18th in Rio. Note that both offers are only available to Simple Choice postpaid subscribers; prepaid customers are excluded from taking advantage of free and unlimited T-Mobile LTE coverage in Brazil.
T-Mobile is also extending the offer that it did for the family members of US athletes attending Olympic Games to cover athletes attending the 2016 Paralympics. This means that Paralympics Team USA family members will be offered free T-Mobile service for the duration of the event, two free Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phones, as well as a free Samsung Gear 360 camera per athlete. These goodies are only available while supplies last.
Here is what T-Mobile CEO had to say on the topic:
What do you guys think? Isn’t T-Mobile doing the right thing by extending its Olympic Games offers to also cover the Paralympics?
