T-Mobile will provide free, high-speed, unlimited 4G LTE to their customers for Rio 2016

The Rio 2016 Olympic Games may not have everyone's backing, with the Zika virus and claims about unclean water causing concern, but T-Mobile seems to be firmly in the 'support' camp, announcing that it's going to give users free, unlimited, "high-speed" internet for the duration of the Games.

Not only that, but calling to and from Brazil is also free, as is texting worldwide. T-Mobile estimates 100,000 Americans alone will be in Rio to watch the world's biggest sporting event, so this will be a big boon to customers of the carrier. Of course, AT&T is sponsoring the entire event, so T-Mobile has had to up its game in a serious way - and I think it's safe to say it has.

T-Mobile jumps on the Pokémon GO bandwagon with free data access for players

If T-Mobile has proven anything in the last few years, it's that the company knows how to get the attention of new and potential customers. So it was only a matter of time before they seized hold of an increasingly global mobile gaming phenomenon. That's right, T-Mo's latest customer-friendly promotion is all about the Pokey Mans. Pokémon GO players on the network won't get dinged for any data used by Niantic's augmented reality game for the next year starting on Tuesday the 19th.

Huawei files a 4G patent complaint against T-Mobile USA

Huawei isn't just in the smartphone and hard-to-pronounce name businesses, they're also a telecommunications giant that handles an enormous amount of business-to-business infrastructure all over the world. That means a diversified portfolio of hardware, software, and (waaait for it) technology patents. BizJournals reports that the Chinese company is bringing that portfolio to bear against T-Mobile US today, alleging that the budget-friendly cell carrier refuses to license 14 of its 4G patents.

[Update: Google too] T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon offer free calls to Turkey following Istanbul airport attack

I wish I didn't have to sit here and write these kinds of posts. I wish we weren't living in times where companies are compelled to offer free calls to countries following tragedies like these (instead of celebrations or national holidays or happy events), especially when they're conducted by fellow man and not inevitable fits of nature. But here we are, mourning another terrorist attack that has taken the lives of 36 persons and injured over 140 in Turkey's Ataturk Airport in Istanbul.

Free pizza Tuesdays might have been a bust, but T-Mobile is still looking for ways to win customers with outspoken promotions. The latest one is "unleashing summer travel," so long as those travel plans include continental Europe. Anyone who subscribes to a Simple Choice plan will get free, unlimited LTE data when travelling to Europe between July 1st and August 31st. And yes, that includes the United Kingdom, whatever the outcome of today's vote might be.

Domino's suspends participation in T-Mobile Tuesdays indefinitely

Well, that didn't take long: after reports from many T-Mobile users on Twitter that they were unable to receive their free Domino's pizza on T-Mobile Tuesday because of promotional limits, Domino's has suspended its support of the program indefinitely. The decision is detailed in an internal Domino's memo that, surprisingly, T-Mobile CEO John Legere himself published in an apparent attempt to get out ahead of the news.

T-Mobile Binge On adds YouTube Gaming, Dailymotion Games, PBS, and others

T-Mobile's unlimited video streaming option lets customers get all the content they want without burning through their data. This sounds like a win-win, but Binge On has received push back for concerns over net neutrality and limiting the quality of video streams. By this point, you know what you're getting, and you probably either love it or hate it.

For those in the former camp, T-Mobile has announced the addition of several more services, with a few of them related to gaming.

Yesterdays T-Mobile Tuesday Domino's deal ended with a bunch of people with no pizza

Last week John Legere unveiled Uncarrier 11, the one where T-Mobile resorts to outright bribes (excuse me, giveaways) to buy customer loyalty. Is this something to be upset over? Not really. Free stuff is free stuff.

Except for many T-Mobile customers, the promised free pizza was not available.
