Roaming prices reduced for the holiday season

London, 8 December 2023  
  • T-Mobile significantly reduces its international roaming prices for the holiday season 
  • Up to 50% discount any time of the day — for T-Mobile Austria and Germany customers - from today until 31st January 2004 
  • Discounts available to some 10 m customers in 5 markets
  • T-Mobile continues to build upon its commitment to simple and transparent pricing

Continuing its strategy to reduce and simplify its tariffs, T-Mobile is today introducing seasonal discounts of up to 50% on its international roaming prices for customers calling home when abroad. 

The seasonal offers are available over the Christmas and New Year period until 31st January 2004, and are open to T-Mobile pay monthly customers in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, The Netherlands and the UK, who are travelling within Europe and the United States. T-Mobile customers who are abroad will be able to call with season's greetings to friends and family at home, at any time of day, including midnight New Year's Eve. 

Nikesh Arora, Chief Marketing Officer of T-Mobile, comments " T-Mobile's goal is to continuously deliver better value to customers by offering attractive, simple and transparent pricing. We believe that competitive pricing together with our new services, such as 'Mix It' and 'Caller Tunes' in the UK market, will help stimulate, and grow, not only the voice market, but also accelerate mobile data usage.

Arora continues, " The 'WorldClass' international roaming tariff promotion is a continuation of the initative begun last March with the reduction of our GPRS tariffs in all our five key markets. Over 25% of our customers travel during the peak holiday season and we are responding to consumer demands of better pricing, together with better service."

Country specific information: 
In Austria and Germany, for a one-off activation fee of €4.95, customers are able to fix the cost at a discounted price of 59c per minute for making calls to their home country when abroad, as well as local calls. 

Customers can save up to 50% using this new tariff option, which is also applicable on any network the customer is using or calling in most European countries. To activate the offer all customers need to do is call the T-Mobile Customer Services in their country. 

In The Netherlands, UK and Czech Republic, current " WorldClass" customers will be entitled to discounts on the existing option. (In The Netherlands, it is a default tariff and all contract customers will receive the discount.)
