doubtful they ever will - tmobile is a german owned company, the parent company DT - deutsche telecom is one of the larger cell providers in europe, all they are doing is opening their current infrasructure in europe to travelers from the US that have t-mobile

If softbanks buy offer goes through suspect that rate plan will vanish, but there has not been much reported on it since August

115 countries including Mexico, Central & S America, Europe, Asia, Africa - see list on their site.
This is something all carriers should do. Beats buying SIM card to use locally.

Well, the new T-mobile international roaming deal includes many countries outside of Europe as well.  Since AT&T used to offer an unlimited *international* data plan at $64.99 I'm thinking that this argument doesn't hold water.

 

I think AT&T could offer much more affordable international roaming plans if they wanted to-- but I agree that its not likely they ever will.

If DT has a presence or a roaming agreement with other cellular providers you get the discount if not you don;t. ATT, Sprint, Verizon has no cellular presence overseas. I do it the easy way when I am in europe - I use Globalstar

Re: International use

I hope AT&T can offer this. We already know everybody overcharges for roaming data. It doesn't actually cost any carrier the $20 they charge us per MB.

 

I'm most interested in the discounted calling. Right now the rates are not really competitive.
