Mobile intros $5 global day passes for LTE data and unlimited calls

T-Mobile adds $5 LTE international data pass as free roaming spreads

AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon all restrict video streaming to 480p resolution unless you pay up for a higher tier of service.

T-Mobile is the carrier to watch right now. So yes, this is a slow network, but it's better than nothing.

The picture is almost identical in the report from Ookla, the makers of the Speedtest app. Ookla uses its more statistically-convoluted Speed Score, rather than a standard mean, so the numbers are a little different.

The type of smartphone used in testing was a factor as well for Ookla's scores, with Verizon running faster on the iPhone X while T-Mobile was faster on the Samsung Galaxy S9. That's so many places that it's easier to tell you the few countries we don't cover rather than list all that we do! Unlike "road tests" of networks, which involves taking identical smartphones running on different networks to a bunch of different locations all over the country and running tests, the crowdsourced reports aren't controlled, and differences in methodology between the networks can introduce bias into the data.

No doubt that subscribers get unlimited data when traveling but it has a base data speed of 128 Kbps. "Data consumption certainly isn't going down, nor is the number of 4G users dropping, so this can only mean network improvements".

In the overall download speed category, which comprised the average across both 3G and 4G networks, T-Mobile remained above the 20 Mbps threshold, while Verizon came in at 19.2 Mbps, AT&T at 13.7 Mbps and Sprint recorded 12.6 Mbps. "Meanwhile we see even more powerful networks incubating in major USA cities, LTE reach continuing to expand and the reinvigoration of the country's smallest national operator Sprint".

As for Sprint, though it brought up the rear in Ookla's Speed Score results, the testing firm says the No. 4 carrier "has delivered the most improved download speeds over the past year". "With any luck, 5G will also jumpstart upload speeds which have lagged in recent years".

Previously, T-Mobile users could take advantage of free worldwide roaming in 140 territories around the world. And today, the Un-carrier also introduces the industry's best option for high speed data and unlimited calling overseas - a new T-Mobile daily data pass - for just $5/day. "However, Verizon won in almost half of the country's largest cities".
