As part of the company's T-Mobile Tuesday promotion, the carrier is offering unlimited data to new and existing customers for Pokemon Go.
A number of businesses are embracing the sudden Pokemon Go craze, with everything from adding charging stations to offering unlimited lures at nearby PokeStops. But now, cell carrier T-Mobile is pulling out the big guns - offering free unlimited Pokemon Go data usage to its US customers through the end of August 2017. This is part of the company's weekly T-Mobile Tuesdays promotion, and will be available for new and existing customers alike, starting July 19.
"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 Pokemon 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 Pokemon Go so our customers can play free for a year. It's gonna be a fantastic T-Mobile Tuesday!"
In order to get the offer - which also includes a free Lyft ride up to $15 and a free Frosty from Wendy's - customers have to download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app and claim the gift between July 19 and August 9. In addition, 250 people who participate in the promotion will receive $100 worth of PokeCoins (14,500), while five will win a trip for themselves and a guest to travel anywhere in the US to go Pokemon hunting.
