T-Mobile Widens Roaming to Canada and Mexico to Overtake Sprint as the 3rd-Largest Carrier

T-Mobile has announced a huge expansion to extend coverage and calling across the United States, Mexico, and Canada for all Simple Choice customers at no additional charge. The new expansion called “Mobile without Borders” is an industry first that allows for calling to both land lines and mobile phones. In addition, 4G LTE data can be accessed straight from the customer’s plan in all three countries at no extra cost. T-Mobile’s Simple Choice plan will become the first and only wireless plan to span an entire continent. AT&T has spent billions on purchasing Mexican telecoms looking to be the first seamless network to cover the United State and Mexico, however T-Mobile plans to release their program first and up AT&T’s plan by offering Canada for free as well.

The expansion removes a significant discomfort for wireless customers in the United States by providing easier communication to the highest accessed countries by the United States. In 2014, 35% of all international calls and 55% of all international travel from the United States was the Mexico and Canada alone. Over 70% of international trips taken by small and mid-sized business travelers were to Mexico and Canada. In addition, approximately $10 billion in global roaming charges at over 90% margins were accumulated by carriers. Long distance calls to Mexico and Canada totaled to approximately 25 billion minutes.

The expansion also brings T-Mobile closer to overtaking Sprint as the 3rd largest mobile carrier. T-Mobile is the nation’s fourth largest wireless carrier with 56.8 million customers. At only 300,000 more ahead, Sprint’s 57.1 million customer base may be overtaken after T-Mobile’s continental plan is exercised.
