As part of T-Mobile’s Un-Carrier #GetThanked, magenta customers are being given free stuff on Tuesdays just for being a T-Mobile customer as the carrier’s token of appreciation. This also included one free share of T-Mobile stock per customer and 1 hour of free in-flight Gogo Wireless on domestic flights.
In spirit of the summer, T-Mobile is also extending this free hour of in-flight Wi-Fi for AT&T and Verizon customers. T-Mobile is doing this so that « long-abused » AT&T and Verizon customers can also feel what it’s like to #GetThanked by the carrier.
This weekend only, from June 24th to June 26, Verizon and AT&T customers can also claim a free hour of in-flight Wi-Fi for domestic flights within the US. T-Mobile customers can get free Wi-Fi for the entire duration of the flight. CEO of T-Mobile John Legere says “We want to show everybody what it feels like to #GetThanked and travel like a T-Mobile customer!”
T-Mobile is really sticking it to the other carriers in hopes that non-magenta customers will feel like they are appreciated by another carrier that could turn to potential switchers.
Also T-Mobile customers flying to Europe this summer will gain access to unlimited high speed data while roaming for no extra charge in the same spirit of the summer as an estimated two-and-half million Americans travel to Europe.
I’ve never been so impressed by a US carrier before. Thank you T-Mobile, from a loyal and content T-Mobile customer, for driving innovation and competition in the US market and really taking care of customers.
