T-Mobile will offer its “Simple Choice” subscribers six major music streaming services, all free of data charges. The carrier will offer Pandora, Slacker, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Samsung’s Milk Music, and SFX’s Beatport.
The new free service is in response to smartphone users concerned that they might consume their data allowances to listen to the various music services.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere stated, “Even when you exhaust your high-speed data bucket, you will still stream music free at a high speed. As a committed music freak, I’m personally outraged at the way the other guys are using the music you love to lure you into over-priced plans with sweet ‘promotional offers’ that quickly roll into higher prices or trigger those absurd overage charges. Music should be free of all that. Music should have no limits. So, beginning right now, you can stream all you want at T-Mobile from all of the top music services – data charges do not apply.”
