Pokemon Go won't count toward T-Mobile data

Pokémon Go won't count against your data on T-mobile

Above Pokémon Go won't count against your data

In addition to a free Frosty and a Lyft Ride up to $15 (because you "gotta stay fueled up" to "explore new Gyms and Pokestops"), you'll also be able to get accessories like battery packs at up to 50 percent off ("to keep playing for hours and hours").

T-Mobile has been a pioneer in giving special treatment to various apps and types of content used on its mobile network, and the carrier announced today that Pokémon Go will be joining its enclave of free data. This promotion will last an entire year and will allow customers to play Pokemon Go without it impeding on their data limit.

So long, Sprint. You jerks.

"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 Pokémon Go!".

T-Mobile CEO John Legere said players' data usage has quadrupled, so he wants to provide some relief. If you're a subscriber, you must download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app to claim these perks, including the free data.

"With the carriers' shared data schemes, players could easily burn up the family's data bucket - and then, hello, overages!" It's probably an understatement to say that these concerns aren't going to be heard whatsoever under the din of T-Mobile users rushing to "catch 'em all". Simple Choice subscribers, for example, can stream Netflix over their mobile broadband connection without it counting against their high-speed data allotment.
