T-Mobile's Open Europe Plan Offers 500MB for $50
T-Mobile USA today rolled out a new roaming plan called 'Open Europe' for its business customers. The plan is meant to help reduce the uncertainty and risk of bill shock due to mobile data fees that can be incurred when subscribers roam onto other networks overseas. The T-Mobile USA Open Europe plan offers 500MB of 3G/4G data for $50 per month. Subscribers to the plan will not be charged overage fees, but T-Mobile USA will throttle down the data speeds once subscribers surpass the 500MB limit when roaming. The plan works in 28 different European countries, including Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, and many others. T-Mobile expects the plan to be available starting in August.
