T-Mobile USA has announced a new feature that should make those traveling to Europe happy. Well, happy assuming they want and/or hope to access mobile data while traveling. The new feature is called Open Europe and it will offer unlimited data for $50 per line per month. That being said, this plan does come with some catches. For example, there is only a limited amount of full-speed data available and this plan will only work with select carriers on select networks. Beginning first with the full-speed data part, here is what T-Mobile has to say on that matter.

“Open Europe includes data usage on select European networks: Austria (T-Mobile), Belgium (BASE), Bulgaria (GLOBUL), Croatia (Tele2), Czech Republic (T-Mobile), Denmark (Telenor), Estonia (Tele2), Finland (Elisa), France (Orange, Bouygues), Germany (Deutsche Telekom), Greece (Cosmote), Hungary (T-Mobile), Italy (Telecom Italia), Latvia (Tele2), Lithuania (Tele2), Luxembourg (Orange), Moldova (orange), Netherlands (T-Mobile), Norway (Telenor, Network Norway), Poland (ERA, Orange), Romania (Orange), Russia (MTS), Slovakia (T-Mobile), Spain (Orange), Sweden (Tele2), Switzerland (Orange), Turkey (Turkcell) and United Kingdom (Everything Everywhere).”
The Open Europe unlimited data plan is expected to be available beginning in August and according to T-Mobile, will have the following features;
