The 4G LTE service from AT&T carrier is now offered for free to users who travel to the U.K. This AT&T roaming deal might sound exciting for iPhone owners who hope to get free data to be used while in the United Kingdom, still its taste is a bit sour. We’ll explain why inside this story. Also remember AT&T deal with Alltel but this is another story.
The company signed its AT&T roaming deal with provider The Cloud to offer customers 1GB of free data abroad. If you are planning to visit the UK you’ll be able to access any of 16 thousand + Wi-Fi spots across the country.
How to Get Your Free Data
What do you think about free roaming data offer? I think it could be a nice offer for those iPhone and iPad users who travel to the UK regularly. Of course, 1GB is not that much if you got used to checking emails, reading news and playing games online during your trip.
Those who wish to use this free data in the UK will have to subscribe to a data add-on. Also AT&T plans to expand in Europe. You can guess that this subscription is not free itself. The package costs some money. And this add-on leaves a sour taste. Don’t you agree?
To get this offer you have to download Wi-Fi International application from AT&T. It is free to get, and it is available in the App Store.
In case you happen to go to the UK all the time on business trips, you might like to get the new feature from your U.S. carrier and enjoy the benefits of this new AT&T roaming deal. You’ll be able to make free Skype calls to your friends and family. You’ll be also able to download some files over 4G LTE network coverage.
AT&T travelers should get the free application and use their free 1GB of data whenever they can.
