Take that, AT&T: T-Mobile offers free unlimited data and calls to customers visiting the Rio 2016 Olympics
In addition, T-Mobile is offering family members of US athletes a free Samsung Galaxy S7 edge smartphone, free Samsung Gear 360 camera, and free T-Mobile service throughout the Summer Olympics in Brazil. You can learn more about the new T-Mobile offers at the source links found at the end of this article.
Last month, AT&T also unveiled an offer aimed at Rio 2016 visitors, including 1 GB of roaming data - however, that's not free: it'll costs you $50 on top of what you're already paying. You can watch T-Mobile CEO John Legere announcing his plans for Rio 2016 (and bashing AT&T) in the video below:
It's estimated that about 100,000 Americans will be visiting Brazil during the 2016 Summer Olympics, so there's going to be huge amounts of data consumed. Luckily for T-Mobile customers, they won't be charged a dime for that.
