T-Mobile apparently set to launch global data roaming plan
- "Global data coverage in over 100 countries at no extra charge." Thus reads a Facebook teaser image for T-Mobile USA's (TMUS) 8:15PM ET "Uncarrier 3.0" event. The text suggests a global data roaming plan is on tap, but there are no details yet about monthly pricing or data limits.
- Cheap international data roaming could appeal to enterprise mobile clients, many of whom have to pay through the nose to browse the Web and check e-mails on foreign 3G/4G networks. Compared with Verizon and AT&T, T-Mobile currently has a miniscule enterprise base.
