T-Mobile to Offer Free Data for Pokémon Go Starting Next Tuesday

by

As part of its T-Mobile Tuesday offerings, T-Mobile plans to offer its customers free data for hit augmented reality game Pokémon Go. Starting on July 19, T-Mobile subscribers will be able to play Pokémon Go without using up their monthly data.

T-Mobile plans to provide free unlimited high-speed data for Pokémon Go for all subscribers through August 17, 2017. Customers will need to redeem the gift in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app between July 19 and August 9, 2016.

Next Tuesday's T-Mobile Tuesday offering, which is Pokémon themed, will also include free Lyft rides up to $15, a free Wendy's frosty, and up to 50 percent off all accessories at T-Mobile stores. 250 T-Mobile subscribers will win $100 in PokéCoins to spend in the app and five people will win a Pokémon Go hunting trip anywhere in the United States.

"This is what T-Mobile Tuesday is all about - thanking customers with hot, new, totally free gifts every week, and right now, nothing is hotter than Pokémon Go!" said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "With the carriers' shared data schemes, players could easily burn up the family's data bucket - and then, hello, overages! At T-Mobile, we're unleashing Pokémon Go so our customers can play free for a year. It's gonna be a fantastic T-Mobile Tuesday!"

T-Mobile first unveiled T-Mobile Tuesdays last month, marking the debut of its eleventh Uncarrier promotion. T-Mobile Tuesdays brings customers a variety of weekly freebies, from food and movie tickets to ride-sharing credits.

Pokémon Go isn't really a data hog. Battery hog, sure, but data consumption is fine. I'm level 13 and have used 66 MB of data so far.

My real issue with this promotion however is that it goes against net neutrality.

If you stop burying yourselves in a stupid phone playing a pointless stupid game (which is disrupting the world and causing anger & hatred) you might make meaningful connections in the real world that will reduce the hatred, killing, and terrorism.

Just saying. Being buried in a phone is not helping anyone.

See, except this game has led me to meet over 50 people in the last week. So will people please stop being jerks and insulting others. You single-handedly are adding to the hatred by being arrogant and think you're better than anyone the plays this game.

All these Pokémon rumors really cheapens this website. Honestly, can I read something else besides Pokémon? And I thought Apple Watch bands were the primary focus.
