T-Mobile has announced that qualifying Simple Choice postpaid customers will automatically receive free unlimited data at up to 4G LTE speeds throughout Brazil during the entire month of August, enabling visitors to celebrate the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro without worrying about roaming charges.
The carrier is also offering free calls within Brazil and to the United States in August, while unlimited texting to over 140 countries continues to be free.
Additionally, T-Mobile will be giving families of U.S. athletes free T-Mobile service and a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and Samsung Gear 360 camera through October. Those who qualify can email RoamFreeInRio@t-mobile.com to get up to two free smartphones per athlete activated ahead of the 2016 Rio Games.
This is the third major T-Mobile promotion to be announced in less than a month, following free unlimited data throughout Europe this summer and free unlimited data for Pokémon Go for one year. Meanwhile, T-Mobile continues to offer perks such as Binge On and Music Freedom, Data Stash, Carrier Freedom, and Mobile Without Borders.
