Tech Friday: What about free streaming music from T-Mobile?

Posted By on December 5, 2014

tmobilefreemusicWhile traveling to northeast Ohio this past week, I finally tested the “free streaming music” available from T-Mobile on my 4G/LTE connected iPad Air 2. I streamed it for an hour driving on the interstate without a hiccup and glanced at my recently reset 200MB free data “meter” (screen shot left) and didn’t show any data use.

Nice perk from the least expensive wireless tablet data provider I could find.

NOTE: I purchased a 6 month $10 bucket of 5GBs of data in October which kicks in each month when I use up the free 200MB. If the service footprint was better, T-Mobile would be a real winner.

While on the subject of music … and I’m thinking of you Aaron Howard
